This evaluation brief provides a summary of the first implementation of the Learning Differences MOOC-Ed developed with support from the Oak Foundation. Initial findings suggest that the course has been effective in supporting the professional growth of participating educators. Specifically, the vast majority of educators report that, as a result of their participation, they have deepened their understanding of learning differences, and have applied new knowledge and skills to make positive changes to their professional practice. To improve future iterations of this MOOC-Ed, participants recommended improvements to the discussion forums, more opportunities for deeper peer engagement, and greater differentiation.
