Blended Schools is a network of schools that have produced hundreds of online interactive lessons and full courses, and thousands of videos which are accessible for free from their BSNcloud and BSNtube repositories. In addition, to help districts and teachers deliver blended and online learning, Blended Schools has produced a series of MOOCs to help promote and build peer/support groups.

Join us for this webinar, where Mark Gensimore, Vice President for Learning and Instruction for the Blended Schools Network, will share their experiences and show you how your institution can build virtual school programs using OER repositories and MOOCs.

While Blended Schools focuses on K-12 schools, the concepts presented in this webinar regarding OERs and MOOCs will also benefit educators working in higher education and life-long learning.
