Moocs may create a global trail of failed business schools

Moocs may create a global trail of failed business schools | Connected Learning | Scoop.it

I agreThe Mooc (massive open online course) phenomenon is having a significant impact on higher education – especially business education.

In less than two years, close to 100 leading universities and business schools have launched 450 costly Moocs and enrolled almost 5m students. Involving Wall Street and Silicon Valley as partners in these ventures, these business schools are changing the rules of competition. But they are doing so at the cost of eliminating their peers.

Those elite schools that are launching Moocs are creating a new standard for business education, in the same way they did with the case study teaching method decades ago.

I agree Fiona.  It seems to me that this is a phenomena looking for a life-cycle to feel a part of.  A bit like wanting to be in the cool kids club :)

As such, we now tell these stories about the past, present, and future whereby all innovations emerge from Silicon Valley, all innovations are recent innovations, and there is no force for change other than entrepreneurial genius and/or the inevitability of "disruptive innovation.

Ana Cristina Pratas's curator insight, January 13, 2015 2:16 AM

Abstract


This design-based research study explored whether sense of community was maintained while flexibility in the course was increased through an adoption of a unique blended learning model. Data collected in this study show a significant drop in the sense of connectedness score from a mean of 50.8 out of 66 to a mean of 39.68 in the first iteration. The score then began to gradually increase, reaching 50.65 in the third iteration. Results indicate that transitioning to a blended learning environment may be a suitable option to increase flexibility while maintaining a sense of community in a project-based course. Future research into specific aspects of course design such as maturity of design, age-level of participants, and context would further develop understanding in this area.

Jennifer Colin's curator insight, October 24, 2015 11:37 AM

This was a very intriguing study that addresses my main hesitancy about predominantly using technology--the loss of human connection. Two researchers at BYU examined the feelings and opinions of students taking blended courses.  It was discovered that, initially, feelings of being connected dropped significantly; but with continued exposure to the blended learning model, feelings of being connected gradually increased, indicating a transition period into blended learning occurs.  I do  not want to see person-to-person learning fall by the wayside, as there is so much value in it.  But I am gradually beginning to see that, done correctly, blended and online learning can be as valuable. As an aspiring administrator, this is important for me to acknowledge, and to continue to follow research on this topic so that I am taking advantage of the benefits it offers my teachers and students.

Methods: Tradition vs. Relevance

Methods: Tradition vs. Relevance | Connected Learning | Scoop.it
The way many people have been programmed to interact with content through the Internet may be one reason why lectures have lost their allure for many.

When kids explore a topic today a primary source is YouTube, which is probably why it’s the second most used search engine after Google. Video for many seems to be more engaging. It also gives control to the learner to repeat or skip over material at will.

Beyond the video even the exploration of text for today’s learner is different. Before the digital explosion, text was stagnant. To get from point A to point G one had to read points B, C, D, E, and F first. Hyperlink changed that linear mindset. Today, while reading text learners can diverge from that straight path with the click of a mouse. They can travel down paths of their own choosing on the subject at hand. Again, they control the path of their learning.

 

The sources for learning today are much different from previous centuries when lectures ruled education. For the curious mind the digital journey seeking knowledge can be its own experience. Having control over one’s own learning is a very effective way to learn. It is also relatively new to a very conservative world in education.
