The Hoosier Lottery and Ivy Tech are partnering up to promote financial literacy. 

Lottery Executive Director Sarah Taylor says they’ve launched what's called a Massive Open Online Course, or "MOOC,"on the subject. 

She says it‘s part of their responsible gaming campaign and world lottery certification.
