The University’s Massive Open Online Course program is finally adapting to the State’s demands, requiring students to take a final exam to receive credits for any MOOC. The finalized proposal on how the University would meet Florida’s MOOC accreditation requirement was presented to the Faculty Senate on April 8. Laurie Shrage, faculty senator and professor of philosophy, said in a previous interview with Student Media that the MOOC tests would function much like the College Level Examination Program, which allows students to eliminate core credits by taking an exam. FIU Online Dean Joyce Elam said that it will be an entirely self-driven initiative, as students will access the material by themselves with no professorial help.
