The Friday Institute has helped develop a Massive Online Open Course for Educators (MOOC-Ed) that K-12 teachers, instructional coaches, instructional support teams and administrators can take to supplement their understanding of learning differences and adopt a common vocabulary around everyday struggles in their classrooms.
