Leveraging MOOCs to bring entrepreneurship and innovation to everyone on campusWith the recent proliferation of massive open online courses (MOOC), universities worldwideare exploring how to leverage these offerings to enhance student education at their homeuniversities. Simultaneously, select universities are interested in expanding their students’exposure to entrepreneurship and innovation.With one in four college students taking an online course, and an increasing number of studentsinterested in entrepreneurship courses, this intersection creates an emerging demand for onlineentrepreneurship courses. Educators are recognizing that online courses can deliver a highquality educational experience for students and faculty.This paper examines steps taken by the University of ________ to develop and translate theirentrepreneurship MOOC entitled __________________ to a for-credit, campus-based onlineoffering to serve thousands of students (a mini-MOOC in entrepreneurship and innovation).Leveraging the experience of teaching three MOOC offerings with over 200,000 studentsglobally, and the university’s experience in entrepreneurship education, the outcome of thiseffort is an online course for students on campus to learn entrepreneurship and innovation on alarge scale.By combining the University’s experiences in online courses with new learning gathered fromreal assessment results and feedback from the three MOOC offerings, this new mini-MOOCcourse’s strategic design and development will be detailed. The tools needed to deliver thecourse and the evaluation plan will be discussed. Using real MOOC and online course surveyresults, interactive course content, and an actionable case study, educators will have insights onhow to launch a mini-MOOC on entrepreneurship and innovation on their campus.
