¿Cómo crear e impartir un Mooc? | ojulearning.es | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

Seguramente todos los que estáis leyendo este artículo os habréis inscrito ya en algún  Mooc, ahora bien, en el caso que queramos impartir uno, seguro que os  surgirán las siguientes dudas, ¿cómo lo podríamos hacer?,  es decir, en que plataforma o solución se alojaría,  ¿qué características tiene que tener un Mooc  para considerarse como tal?, y lógicamente  ¿cómo podríamos producirlo?.

AlGonzalezinfo's curator insight, May 9, 2013 12:09 PM

Excellent resource, especially for many of us who are doing research on gaming apps!  Thanks Linda.

 

From the article:

 

The 11 basic needs are gaining knowledge, gaining and improving skills, feeling competent, persevering through hard times, creating tools, managing danger, regulating emotions, competing for rewards, cooperating for rewards, caring for loved ones, and satisfying the senses with pleasant inputs (sights, smells, sounds, etc.). In the model they will each be referred to by their relevant nouns. Only “satisfying the senses with pleasant inputs” is called “Optimal Choice” because that is the purpose of satisfying our senses. They help us make the best choice by making us feel attracted to “good” things and repelled by “bad” things.

I am personally a big fan of 'gamification' and the motivational benefits to learning it brings. The work of Prof James Paul Gee is particularly brilliant. Here's a superb summary of the psychology behind why kids find video games so engaging.

Half an Hour: Assessment in MOOCs

If you really need assessment, a few solutions have been proposed and, to a limited extend, tried out:
- automated essay assessment - this is not as far-fetched as it may seem, though it's not necessarily a cure-all. Automated essay assessment needs to be seeded with a large number of already-marked essays; on being given this seed, it extracts the properties of high-quality essays, and then matches new essays to those properties. There's a really good essay describing the process here: http://mfeldstein.com/si-ways-the-edx-announcement-gets-automated-essay-grading-wrong/ ; Here's another article: http://tlt.its.psu.edu/2013/04/12/mooc-moments-essay-grading-software/

Stop evaluating training!

Stop evaluating training! | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

Rather, he advises organizations to align training with business goals and evaluate all elements that go into achieving those goals with a focus on improving the impact.

According to Professor Brinkerhoff, an alarming 57% of firms failed to effectively implement strategic initiatives over the last 3 years. He also says that research suggests that less than 20% of trainees actually apply their learning in their work in a way that produces concrete and worthwhile results aligned with business strategy. The rest is ‘unrealized value’ of training.
