Dear colleagues

I am planning a visit of the MOOC studio at EPFL Lausanne. This is your chance to take a first glimpse at your future Hollywood career.

-> What is MOOC?

A Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) is an online course aimed at unlimited participation and open access via the web. In addition to traditional course materials such as videos, readings, and problem sets, MOOCs provide interactive user fora that help build a community for students, professors, and teaching assistants. There is a lot of interest in MOOC recently. The world's leading universities have started to offer courses on plattforms such as Coursera, edX or Udacity: https://www.edx.org/

EPFL operates a production studio where animated content is being produced. Therefore it is like a Hollywood studio in Switzerland:

I have 2 options for the visit: Fri. Feb 21 or Fri. Feb 28, approximately 2-4pm each.
The visit will include a presentation & discussion followed by a visit & demo of the studio.
Our host is the Executive Director of the MOOC factory.

There is no limit on the maximun number of participants. If you want to join, please register your availability at Doodle until Thu. 13th: http://doodle.com/xqszdzxun6mew43c
