Abstract

This paper introduces a case study that redesigns graduate school classrooms into massive open online course (MOOC)-like content with remote face-to-face sessions. Due to the influence of COVID-19, the higher-education environment is rapidly shifting to an online environment in many institutions. Therefore, instructors need to transform lessons they have been doing in physical classrooms to an online format. However, just conducting the same talks online is not enough to provide students with satisfactory learning. Instructors need to redesign class content and structure to optimize them for the online environment. In this case study, the research team and an instructor redesigned an existing graduate school class into MOOC-like content. We will discuss the specific methods and benefits of this initiative.
