Continuando no tema de ensino de massa online, o Google liberou a tecnologia que eles usaram no seu curso de julho “Power Searching with Google” para os interessados em experimentar na criação de cursos desse tipo. Estamos de olho nestas iniciativas, Marginal Revolution Univertsity, Coursera e outras mencionadas no post.
In July, Research at Google ran a large open online course, Power Searching with Google, taught by search expert, Dan Russell. The course was successful, with 155,000 registered students. Through this experiment, we learned that Google technologies can help bring education to a global audience. So we packaged up the technology we used to build Power Searching and are providing it as an open source project called Course Builder. We want to make this technology available so that others can experiment with online learning.
