Experiences from Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) and how the MOOC could potentially increase diversity, social inclusion & learner engagement | Mark Morley

"There is currently much interest and excitement at the emergence of an educational approach commonly termed the ‘Massive Open Online Course’ or MOOC. ... I feel there is much we can learn from the delivery of MOOCs that can be used to enhance the on-campus experience supplemented by online course material and delivery. This format offers us the opportunity to investigate learning and improve teaching processes, perhaps more similar to the edX approach. It would seem appropriate to collect and use data to inform this process; treating learning and teaching as a field ripe for research, tying in to a research-led approach."

Rose Heaney's insight:

comprehensive indeed - author has participated in a lot of moocs. Very readable intro for those who have never heard of moocs

Peter B. Sloep's curator insight, January 12, 2013 5:55 AM

This is the single, most compehensive resource on MOOCs that I have come across yet. It discusses the history of MOOCs and describes Mark's personal experience with a number of them (both the c- and x- variety). Although it is a personal account, particularly the latter part, there is much value in learning the opinions of someone who 'has walked the walk' and not just 'talked the talk'. Anybody who wants to form an opinion on MOOCs - whether administrator, teacher of regular courses, teacher aspiring to teach a MOOC, or student in the widest sense of the word - can find something valuable here. Highly recommended! (@pbsloep)

Patricia Daniels's curator insight, January 13, 2013 9:17 AM

Interesting and detailed personal insight into cMOOCs and xMOOCs from a participant. I sincerely hope more learners take the time to reflect and share the experiences they have with this kind of learning context. I find as an educator that the student voice is important and assuming that the developers of MOOCs are prepared to listen to critique, both postive and negative, then this is a valuable factor which can lead to improvements which hopefully will have a positive effect on the learner experience and quality of learning.

Want To Create Interactive Moodle Content?

Want To Create Interactive Moodle Content? | Being practical about Open Ed | Scoop.it
Recently there was, what could have been, a fairly benign thread posted on the Moodle forums about how to create more interactive lessons. JP, the thread originator, was simply looking for a way to bring a little more life to the Moodle experience.

As can be expected from the Moodle community, there were others who immediately dove in and offered help and ideas – specifically by looking at all of the features available in the lesson module. However, JP was looking for something even beyond this.
