Educational Robotics for Absolute Beginners is a MOOC designed to introduce K-12 teachers with no prior computer science or robotics experience to the basics of LEGO NXT Robot programming. The course was developed following several successful in-person workshops on the same topic. This paper introduces some of the issues that arose as we transitioned the material to a MOOC, describes some of the unique challenges we faced by incorporating specialized hardware into a MOOC, and presents some preliminary data evaluating the success of our approach.
