“This video is of the “New Opportunities for Librarians: What Happens When You Go Behind the Lines in a MOOC?” session at the 18-19 March 2013 “MOOCs and Libraries: Massive Opportunity or Overwhelming Challenge?” event hosted by OCLC Research and the University of Pennsylvania Libraries. As we learn about new platforms and new modes of working, librarians are going into the trenches to see for themselves how MOOCs work. How do library resources and research skills fit into MOOCs and other online learning environments? Where do library collections and service fit? How can we use the experience gained in MOOCs to think about the future of the library in an evolved teaching environment? Featuring Marjorie Hassen, Director of Teaching, Research, and Learning Services, University of Pennsylvania Libraries; Sarah Bordac, Head, Instructional Design, Brown University; Jennifer Dorner, Head, Instruction and User Services, University of California Berkeley; and Lynne O’Brien, Director of Academic Technology and Instructional Services, Duke University.
