A common stumbling block for students considering a STEM major has been introductory math courses. The University System of Georgia (USG) is addressing this problem by supporting the development of an online multi-institutional pre-calculus course. This course combines lessons learned from the Math Emporium model with elements of massive open online course (MOOC) delivery to create a highly interactive, affordable, accessible, and support-rich online learning experience. Participants will learn about the changes that have been implemented across three semesters of course offering with particular attention to engagement strategies refined for spring 2015. Successful online instructional strategies that have worked on other campuses will be invited for sharing.
