Mastering established and emerging technology tools is an important part of being successful, whether in a classroom or on the job. Modern life revolves around the daily use of technology, however, many of us are not always adept at identifying the most useful technology tool for a particular project or situation.

    In #EmTechMOOC, you will learn how to employ lifelong learning strategies while being introduced to well established and emerging technology tools. You will then have the opportunity to practice with them. By the end of the course, you will have created an ePortfolio that demonstrates your competency with a variety of useful tools, which can be integrated into your personal, academic, and professional work.

    The greatest reward for participating in this course is learning more about how to be independent learner and also how to use technology tools to enhance your life.

    Remember to have fun!

    To enroll in this course and also earn a verified Coursera Certificate of Completion you need to pay the $29.00 course fee, or be a student, faculty, staff, or alumni, from any of the 64 State University of New York (SUNY) campuses.

  • You will build a personal toolbox to assist you to effectively use web-based technology tools for learning and career advancement.

    You will create an ePortfolio to serve as a digital collection to showcase your skills, experiences, and accomplishments. Your ePortfolio will be progressively built-up through the course modules. Your completed portfolio will demonstrate self-reflective practices and showcase your skills and accomplishments. Just as importantly, your ePortfolio will serve as evidence of your personal learning and discovery process. The final course activity includes a peer-review process, which will provide guidance about how to improve your ePortfolio as you continue on your journey of lifelong learning.

    You will earn digital badges and anyone from SUNY or those who pay the Coursera enrollment fee will also earn a verified Coursera Certificate of Completion. You can display your badges and certificate on your personal ePortfolio and through your social networks to share your accomplishment with your peers and prospective employers.
