IWP Online Campus

The IWP Online Campus provides the IWP's creative writing and literature MOOCs as widely-accessible MOOC-Packs for anyone who wishes to use them in a local, community-based study group or workshop. Each MOOC-Pack provides a MOOC’s course content, along with teaching tools for use in a group setting. These toolkits are designed to be used by anyone, anywhere in the world; you do not need prior teaching experience to lead your own group!

The IWP's MOOC-Packs serve as complete archives of past MOOCs.
