Preparing to Learn Online MOOC (Massive Open Online Course) is a free online course offered by Ozarks Technical Community College. The course will be available to anyone (16 years of age or older) who would like to experience online learning in a no cost, low-risk way prior to enrolling in an online course.
Designed to simulate an actual learning experience, participants will use the same tools and complete activities similar to what may be found in an actual course; however, unlike an actual course, there are no deadlines and participants can move through the course at their own pace.
In addition to experiencing online learning tools and sample activities, participants may also take an online learning survey which will assess personal attributes, skills and knowledge that contribute to success in an online learning environment. Survey results will provide important feedback that participants can use to make informed decisions when choosing a learning format that is right for them.
