In these unprecedented times, many of us are finding creative ways to communicate and collaborate. From preschoolers participating in circle time to seniors enjoying time with family and friends through video-calls, social distancing is now the norm. Disruptions in our work lives and in our personal lives are causing us to think outside the box. Online communication has been around for decades. Now, the methods that are a staple in the business world and in online instruction are quickly being adapted to bring us closer together.

SUNY’s Exploring Emerging Technologies for Lifelong Learning and Success (#EmTechMOOC) is an online learning opportunity to introduce freely-available emerging technologies and mobile apps to help us communicate and collaborate. EmTechWIKI is a socially-curated collection of tools and resources created to complement the #EmTechMOOC Coursera massive open online course. Join us to explore a variety of technologies to connect with others and minimize the distances between us.

This webinar introduces #EmTechMOOC and EmTechWIKI to encourage learning, discovery, exploration, and play. Many people from around the world participate and earn Mastery Badges. SUNY alumni, faculty, staff, and students can earn free Certificates of Completion. Coursera certificates and digital badges are widely recognized and valued by today’s employers. This online learning opportunity will help you gain lifelong learning strategies to be better connected and better equipped to keep pace with technology change.
