With online learning becoming a more viable and attractive option for students and teachers around the world, we discuss how one effort in the U.S. is focused on designing, implementing, and evaluating MOOCs designed for professional development of mathematics teachers. We share design principles and learning opportunities, as well as discuss specific impacts participants report for changes to teaching practices and how these MOOCs have impacted engagement of educators.
