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 5 new, free (and often generating a lot of buzz) MOOCs that apply to campus faculty and staff looking to enhance their professional development or apply new methodology to their teaching.

For example, this list includes MOOCs, all available in May, that range from “30 Days of TED,” which helps attendees learn how to Flip their courses using TED resources (and much more), to “Understand Media by Understanding Google,” which reveals how to adopt strategies that put attendees on an even footing with large media entities in achieving their own communications goals. Look for other courses on building career skills, applying data to social strategies, and more.

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