It is exciting to see that MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses) are gaining popularity and so is Design Thinking. And what can be better than MOOCs in Design Thinking. Coming month, two of the pioneer organizations in Design Thinking are offering free online courses.
One of them is Human-Centered Design for Social Innovation by IDEO.org and +Acumen.
"Human-Centered Design for Social Innovation is a five-week course that will introduce you to the concepts of human-centered design and help you use the design process to create innovative, effective, and sustainable solutions for social change. No prior design experience necessary."
Registration Deadline: July 03, only group of 2 or more allowed.

Another one is Design Thinking Action Lab by Stanford D. School. According to the course description:
"In this experiential course you will learn the design thinking process by tackling a real world innovation challenge. As preparation for each stage of the challenge, you will explore the main design thinking concepts through short videos, each paired with brief activities to practice relevant methods and approaches. There will be one weekly assignment reporting on your progress, as well as weekly Google hangouts with the instructor. On the last week of the course, you will apply the process to your own context and challenges, while hearing from experts who use design thinking to innovate in different fields, such as healthcare and education."
Begins on July 22
