This evaluation report documents the Friday Institute’s development and implementation of three MOOC-Eds funded by the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation: Fraction Foundations, Disciplinary Literacy for Deeper Learning, and Teaching Statistics through Data Investigations. Findings show that the Friday Institute has been largely successful in designing professionally relevant learning experiences with opportunities for both personalization and peer support. As a result, educators have reported improvements in their knowledge and skills, as well as positive changes to their professional practice. The findings also illustrate that even well-designed MOOC-Eds face significant challenges in scaling learning that embodies the principles of effective professional development.
