Leading the Digital Learning Transition

Friday Institute and North Carolina State College of Education via MOOC-ED

This course may be unavailable.


The Digital Learning Transition in K-12 Schools massive online open course for educators (DLT MOOC-Ed) will help you:

  • Understand the potential of digital learning in K-12 schools;
  • Assess progress and set future goals for your school or district; and
  • Plan to achieve those goals.

The DLT MOOC-Ed is designed for school and district leaders, such as superintendents, principals, curriculum directors, technology directors, financial officers, instructional coaches, library media specialists, and lead teachers, as well as university faculty, consultants, parents and any others involved in planning and implementing K-12 digital learning initiatives.

We invite participation from public, charter and private schools. While the course materials are U.S. focused, we invite educators from around the world and found that international perspectives enriched the experience for everyone in prior courses. There is no cost for participating in the DLT MOOC-Ed.

We recommend, when possible, participation by teams from schools, districts or other organizations, since having local colleagues work together to relate the lessons from the DLT MOOC-Ed to their own context makes the course even more valuable. If a team is not available, individuals are welcome to participate on their own.
