Next Tuesday, April 23rd at 2pm, iversity's Open Courses and MOOC Production Fellowship will be featured during a presentation led by Hannes Klöpper, iversity's chief marketing officer. Iversity is promoting their MOOC Production Fellowship program which is offering 10 grants of €25,000 to faculty and universities to produce courses. The talk is open to CUID holders and will be held in 523 Butler Library. (Use westside elevators.)
Hannes Klöpper is a Columbia grad and co-founder of the Berlin-based online-startup iversity. Iversity is the first European startup in the Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) space. To develop their inaugural set of courses, iversity partnered with a top German think-tank the Stifterverband (www.stifterverband.info) for Europe's first-ever MOOC contest. Through April 30, universities and professors from around the globe can submit their concepts for open online courses in any subject matter.
