A Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) allows participants to study an area without leaving the comfort of their homes or the convenience of their desks. If a participant is unable to catch a session as it occurs, the sessions are recorded so that they can be viewed them at a convenient time. This ability to access and review course material from highly qualified instructors means that participants also have the ability to go back and review a session if they need to clarify something for an assignment.

The book for the course, Project Management Skills for All Careers, is available as an e-book ($16.95) or bound copy (Black and White bound $30.91 or Color bound $44.75). It can be purchased at
