Penn State launched its first massive open online course (MOOC), Introduction to Art: Concepts & Techniques, yesterday – an effort that has been three months in the making. Anna Divinsky, lead faculty member of the Digital Arts Certificate Program at Penn State, has been instrumental in creating the first of the five courses that Penn State is offering this year on the leading MOOC platform, Coursera.
