MOOCs for GLAM folk

I am a big fan of MOOCs, I think being able to learn about things I’m interested in at my own pace, often for free, is pretty amazing.  

Recently, I have completed several MOOCs on a variety of topics including serious gamingreputation management in a digital world and concepts in game development.  I am currently enrolled in a MOOC about gamification and another on writing for the web.

While searching for more MOOCs to work on through the university break, I came across a couple of GLAM related ones that I thought I would share here.  Some are active; you can complete assessments and claim certificates to add to your LinkedIn profile or professional website (if you’re happy to pay for them).  Some are archived; you can still access all the course content at your own pace, but you cannot complete assessment (in most cases) or claim a certificate.

If you know of any other GLAM related MOOCs, let me know.  I’d be keen to add them to the to do pile.

Go forth and learn!
