ISU online course on Iowa Caucuses draws international attention - Sarina Rhinehart, Ames Tribune

With the first of four sessions of Iowa State University’s first massive open online course (MOOC), which covered the Iowa Caucuses, having just wrapped up, political science professor Steffen Schmidt said the session was “very satisfying,” having had more than 1,300 enrolled in the first session, and at this time, more than 2,000 enrolled through the four different sessions of the course. “It was great; it was fun,” Schmidt said. “There were a good mix of people from different kinds of backgrounds.” This free courses offered to anyone in the world with Internet access, is the first MOOC course offered by ISU, and focused on the first-in-the-nation Iowa Caucuses, including lectures, interviews, readings, quizzes and discussion forums.
