Invitation to Become an EmTech Fellow

Anyone who completes #EmTechMOOC is invited to become a Fellow!

It is important for EmTech participants to have robust support to build and sustain an effective learning community. The role of a Fellow involves making supportive and encouraging comments in the Discussion Forums and in the #EmTechMOOC social media channels to mentor and nurture the community. Fellows are encouraged to ask questions, make connections, and suggest additional technologies for further exploration.

After you complete the MOOC, submit this form if you would like to request to become an EmTech Fellow. After you are approved, a link to the EmTech Fellow Handbook will be shared with you, which provides information about what it takes to be a Fellow, guidance about mentoring, and instructions about how to use the Coursera tools that are available to Fellows.

EmTech Fellows are able to:

  • Moderate & participate in EmTech discussion forums and social media
  • Participate in a private discussion forum just for Fellows
  • View and share input on peer-review assignments
  • Participate in the scholarship of teaching and learning (SoTL) activities along with the EmTech Team

An EmTech Fellow Badge is awarded to those who have completed EmTech and also completed the minimum EmTech Fellow requirements, which involve commenting on at least 1 post in each module. You are welcome to continue serving as a Fellow as long as you are able. After completing the MOOC and providing supportive comments to at least one person in each module, use this form to claim your Fellow Badge.

The #EmTechMOOC Leadership Team is also available to provide Fellows with help in making the most of their Fellowship opportunity. Contact us at if you are interested in becoming an EmTech Fellow.
