With all the MOOCs available today, including the number of platforms and higher-ed institutions offering courses, it’s sometimes difficult to navigate the most credible—and most interesting—MOOCs that can cater to your institution.

In the interest of saving you time, the editors of eCampus News have aggregated 10 new, free (and often generating a lot of buzz) MOOCs that apply to not only students interested in topics such as programming, but to IT staff looking to better manage hacking risks, faculty looking to develop their blended learning teaching skills, and campus leaders interested in how to categorize decision-making.

For example, this list includes MOOCs, all either available in April or have been newly listed in April, that range from “Tech and the Future” which helps manage change and innovation on campus in a strategic way, to “Performance Assessment in a Virtual Classroom,” which explores the myths and challenges of assessing performance virtually.  Look for other courses on blender course design, understanding the brain’s basic behavior, and much more.

The best part? All of the courses are free and from vetted platforms, institutions and instructors. This roundup is a part of our new monthly series that will bring you up-to-date on the MOOC courses you can’t afford to miss.
