    Lightbulb Better Living (and learning) through MOOCs

    An astrobiology MOOC, and how to create your own. The paper is a little hard to find, so I linked to the PDF as well as the abstract.

    abstract: http://cdsads.u-strasbg.fr/abs/2019EPJWC.20001019L
    paper itself: https://www.epj-conferences.org/arti...2017_01019.pdf

    Making a Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) about Astrobiology: Why? For Whom? How?
    Lineweaver, Charles H.
    The International Symposium on Education in Astronomy and Astrobiology (ISE2A 2017), Utrecht, the Netherlands, Edited by Deustua, S.; Eastwood, K.; ten Kate, I.L.; EPJ Web of Conferences, Volume 200, id.01019 (07/2019)

    Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) are becoming the textbooks of the 21st century. I describe what a MOOC is, and try to answer the questions: Why make a MOOC? Who are MOOCs for? and How to make a MOOC? Anxiety about MOOCs replacing teachers is largely misplaced. I describe my on-going experience of putting together an astrobiology MOOC for the Australian National University.
