The Office of Online Education in the Division of Education Outreach will host an Inside Higher Education webinar: MOOCs for the Rest of Us 11am - Noon January 22 in Room 208A in the UNLV Student Union. Massive open online courses (MOOCs) have become the talk of academe, with many colleges and universities debating whether they should start them or join one of the consortia offering the courses. But what of colleges that don't plan to offer their own MOOCs?
Are you ready for the SAT and ACT?
The date is circled on the calendar. You’ve been prepping on your own for weeks—maybe months. There is nothing else you can do to get ready for the SAT or ACT.

Participants in the Antarctic cruise find the beginning of each day is like opening a new gift from Mother Nature. So far their days have run the gamut -- from a penguin breeding colony to rafts of penguins; from seeing dramatic icebergs to riding the waves created by rocking icebergs, from yoga on the beach to camping in the snow atop an island.
More than 30 Continuing Education students and trip leaders Peg Rees and Sharon Schafer are on an 11-day active adventure to Antarctica. You will be able to join them as they are introduced to the Antarctic’s unique wildlife and landscapes, walk on ice, snow, and rock to visit penguins, and explore on-land cultural sites.
There are two ways to follow Explore Antarctica December 6 - 19, 2012

UNLV Continuing Education has joined with Catalyst to offer SAT and ACT boot camps. The momentum-boosting weekend seminars will arm students with go-to strategies for every question they will face on the day of the test. Students will learn to spot hidden clues that instantly reveal the main idea in long reading passages. They will also find out how to avoid the four sneakiest ways SAT and ACT grammar questions try to trick students. In addition, students will be able to compose a perfect-score essay, no matter what question the SAT asks.
Make a difference in your community! Native plants help prevent erosion, reduce dust, help to thwart invasive species and provide important habitat for wildlife. Join a team of volunteers to plant native trees at Corn Creek. There are 3 different areas that will be planted at this event. Individuals need to be in fairly good physical condition as planting requires the ability to bend, kneel, get a little dirty, and lift 1 gallon and larger potted plants. Plan to be outside in cool, sunny conditions with no shade - a hat and sunscreen are recommended.
