#EmTechMOOC is a Massive Open Online Course, also called a MOOC. The MOOC, hosted on the Coursera platform, provides a supportive environment for dialogue and sharing among participants.

EmTechWIKI ( http://suny.edu/emtech ) has been built to complement the MOOC. It is a socially-curated discovery engine to discover tools, tutorials, and resources. The WIKI can be used as a stand-alone resource, or it can be used together with #EmTechMOOC. Anyone is welcome to add or edit WIKI resources.

The MOOC learning environment is structured around 5 week-long modules. The concepts that are covered include Lifelong Learning and the 4Cs of 21st-century skills, which include Communication and Collaboration, Creativity, Critical Thinking. Participants build a personal ePortfolio to display artifacts created through Discovery Exercises to showcase your accomplishments. The final module provides an opportunity to summarize and reflect on the learning journey.

Learning activities provide accessible, curated information and application exercises pertaining to current and emerging technologies relevant to learners and professionals alike, such as audio, video, social networking, etc.
