dc.description.abstractThis cross-campus collaborative project proposes developing and launching an open access course (iMOOC) with a range of supporting open education resources to prepare international online learners to successfully integrate into virtual learning environments in American universities, including OPEN SUNY. The tentative course title is: “Navigating U.S.-style Virtual Learning Environments: An Introduction to American Culture, Academic System, and Self-Directed Learning”. It will help international students become familiar with and better understand American culture and the academic system, refine critically important skills, learn about virtual learning environments and practice some of the widely utilized in the U.S educational technologies. The course can be an OPEN SUNY tool to attract and retain international online learners; also, to support campus-based international students in U.S. universities. Self-regulation and self-directedness are emphasized, as many international learners come from teacher-centered environments and are not used to student-centered pedagogies employed in many U.S.-based, online courses and programs.en_US
