MOOC Project

American English Massive Open Online Courses Supported by the US Embassy Kazakhstan, Regional English Language Office, organized by KazTEA

https://www.aeeteacher.org/MOOC

This project involves teachers of English and STEM, as well as Bachelor and Master program students of relevant specialties from 16 different cities in Kazakhstan. The project involves both online training and live interactive sessions.

The participants undergo on-line training on the MOOC Coursera platform in two courses: English for Media Literacy and English for STEM. Each course lasts five weeks online. During this period, five modules are studied respectively. It is estimated that on average participants will spend 3 to 5 hours per week for online training. The training is also represented by live weekly interactive sessions including an initial orientation and concluding session at the end. As a result, each course takes seven weeks to complete. Thus, training within the project will take 14 weeks.

Both of the online courses were developed by teachers and specialists from the University of Pennsylvania, USA and are hosted on the Coursera MOOC platform.
Training for the selected project participants is free.
The working language is English.
Participants who successfully complete the entire training program will receive a certificate.
