Abstract

For developing countries, watching videos on limited internet access can be difficult if not impossible Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) that include podcasts, Virtual International Exchanges (VIEs) through Canvas and/or social media could be the new course format that is needed for developing countries to advance educational systems MOOCs lack social engagement and VIEs bring that essential interaction MOOCs + VIEs can create a new digital course format The initial research in VIEs is showing that the students and faculty are interested in new course formats and new courses focused on VIEs This Fall is the first MOOC + VIE pilot between Uzbekistan and a Midwestern US university
