A colleague at the Z. Smith Reynolds Library reminded our office that their MOOC (Massive, Open, Online Course) called ZSRx will begin next week on March 18th.
All parents and family members are cordially invited (even encouraged!) to participate. Details about ZSRx are below.
You’re invited to ZSRx.
ZSRx: The Cure for the Common Web is a free, open, online course that will provide a fun, collaborative environment for learning about tools and techniques for using the web. Participants will learn how to increase productivity, search effectiveness, evaluation skills, and awareness of issues related to privacy on the Internet. Anyone who wants to be a better searcher, user of web tools, and evaluator of online information should participate!
This free, open, online course for Wake Foresters will run for four weeks beginning March 18th.
The ZSRx website has more information about the course, and also allows you to register online. So far there are over 600 alumni, parents, and friends who will participate, and they come from all corners of the world.
We hope that our Wake Forest parents and families who have not yet registered will do so if they are interested.
The Office of Family Engagement provides information and support to Wake Forest parents, guardians, grandparents, and family members. The office maintains the Family Engagement Page of the Wake Forest website, which is the primary vehicle of communication with families, as well as our Facebook and Twitter presence.
