You may have seen the announcement two weeks ago regarding Marist
College's launch of the Fashion FOLD at New York Fashion Week and the
related fashion academic community and MOOCs that will be part of this
initiative. Below is information on the first MOOC that we will be
offering, which will be run on Sakai, starting March 12, 2014. This is a
"peer-to-peer" MOOC (also a first as far as we know) which was developed
by fashion majors at Marist last semester and who will be running it this
semester (with oversight from our fashion department and faculty).
Please feel free to distribute this far and wide as we'd like to have a
really MASSIVE turn out! ;-)
Marist College's fashion students have recently launched one of the
world's first fashion MOOCs (Massive Open Online Course) which is now open
for registration and is free to anyone who is interested in participating!
Details on the course and how to register are below. Please distribute
this email to anyone or any group you think may be interested.
Future of Fashion MOOC Overview
START DATE: March 12, 2014
LENGTH: 12 weeks (self-paced)
Developed and administered entirely by students, this 12-module free
online course will guide participants through the theories of trend
movement, the history of street fashion, how to spot and contextualize
important trends and finally, creating a digital "portfolio" of
street-style observations. A typical module might include a web
exploration, an image gallery, a brief reading and guiding questions.
Although they are designed to be completed on a weekly basis, users may
progress through the sections entirely at their own pace. Once three
modules have been completed, a quiz will be administered and participants
will be able to move forward through the next three. Quizzes assess
completion of course content and can be taken multiple times.
Most importantly, the Future of Fashion MOOC is a fun, fast-moving project
that will enhance anyone's understanding of fashion, trend, style and
culture. Take it alone, or with a friend! Check out the student video to
