Registration is now open for Perspectives on Disability, Northern Illinois University’s first-ever Massive Open Online Course (MOOC). The free online course was developed to raise awareness about disability, a fact of life for millions of people around the world, from personal, philosophical, sociological, psychological, medical, and legal perspectives. The MOOC is led by College of Health and Human Sciences professor Greg Long, a Presidential Teaching Professor in the School of Allied Health and Communicative Disorders. Staci Fulton, a former AHRS 200 student who has a disability, is hoping the MOOC based on the course will have a positive impact and says, “I think it’s important for people to realize that despite the many stigmatizations about disability, we can live normal lives, no matter what accommodations we may need. This MOOC will be a real eye opener for people and I am hoping will give people more of an open mind when it comes to disability!”
