mooc research

We recently became aware of this research opportunity and see it as an excellent opportunity for members of the COIL community to fund their research. Unfortunately, the deadline for the initial two page submission is July 7, 2013 so don’t delay in reading through the details below if interested.

The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation is funding the MOOC Research Initiative (MRI) “as part of a set of investments intended to explore the potential of MOOCs to extend access to postsecondary credentials through more personalized, more affordable pathways. Grants will be made available in the range of $10,000 – $25,000.”
