L'usage des MOOCs requiert des compétences très pointues, en termes d'autonomie notamment, dans le chef des apprenants. Il ne faut pas voir les MOOCs comme un ennemi mais plutôt voir en quoi ils peuvent être utiles à notre pratique enseignante et dans quelle(s) modalité(s) nous pouvons les y intégrer.

Mlik Sahib's curator insight, November 20, 2013 11:33 PM

"Higher education is an enormous business in the United States--we spend approximately $400 billion annually on universities, a figure greater than the revenues of Amazon, Apple, Facebook, Google, Microsoft, and Twitter combined--and the Professor has no trouble rounding up a group of Silicon Valley's most prestigious investors to support his new project. The Professor's peers follow suit: Two fellow Stanford faculty members launch a competing service the following spring, with tens of millions of dollars from an equally impressive group of backers, and Harvard and MIT team up to offer their own platform for online courses. By early 2013, nearly every major institution of higher learning--from the University of Colorado to the University of Copenhagen, Wesleyan to West Virginia University--will be offering a course through one of these platforms.

Suddenly, something that had been unthinkable--that the Internet might put a free, Ivy League–caliber education within reach of the world's poor--seems tantalizingly close. "Imagine," an investor in the Professor's company says, "you can hand a kid in Africa a tablet and give him Harvard on a piece of glass!"

Making MOOCs Teacher-Centered, Competency-Based and Personalized

Making MOOCs Teacher-Centered, Competency-Based and Personalized | Education and Cultural Change | Scoop.it

"Do you sometimes feel like you are out of strategies for a particular student or several students in your class even though you have tried many different instructional approaches? You are not alone. All students learn differently – and teachers work hard to meet the various needs in their classrooms. However, when I was a teacher, I didn’t feel like I was prepared to meet all of my students’ needs, nor did I feel like professional learning experiences were personalized to what I needed or how I learned most effectively. The Learning Differences MOOC for Educators addresses this gap by providing educators with rich information about students’ learning differences, while also using an online platform designed to personalize learning for educators to meet their learning needs."

"At TechCrunch Disrupt this year, Coursera Co-Founder Daphne Koller claimed that 2014 is the year MOOCs will come of age. An ecosystem has now developed around MOOCs: hundreds of people employed full-time (the big three--Coursera, Udacity and edX--employ more than a hundred people each), thousands of people involved in the creation of MOOCs, many millions in funding, and, importantly, millions in revenue."

... ok, MOOCS the solution! ... and one of the main drivers for change: disrupting differently best and average universities.

Unfortunately, big, best universities will sell their MOOCs in the global higher education market.

The future? Following the author, «employment in the industry would drop by nearly 30% and more than 700 institutions would shut their doors. The rest would need to reinvent themselves to survive».

These quantities are not supported by any documented model, nevertheless.

White House science council recommends U.S., accreditors support MOOCs | Inside Higher Ed

White House science council recommends U.S., accreditors support MOOCs | Inside Higher Ed | Education and Cultural Change | Scoop.it

President Obama’s Council of Advisors on Science and Technology has a message for the federal government and regional accreditors: Go easy on the MOOCs.

In a report released on Wednesday, the council of engineers and scientists recommends the federal government not interfere with vendors and providers experimenting with massive open online courses and other forms of distance education. That message extends further to accreditors, which are encouraged to waive some of the standards required of institutions seeking approval for traditional programs.

“It would also be premature to impose standards and regulations that might impair the power of competitive market forces to motivate innovation,” the report reads. “If the bar for accreditation is set too high, the infant industry developing MOOC and related technology platforms may struggle to realize its full potential.”

As a third recommendation, the council suggests establishing grant programs to spur research into online education and the effectiveness of MOOCs. To support such an initiative, the data could be made available through a "national exchange mechanism" such as a "center for high-scale machine learning."

The accreditation issue is a delicate one, and many faculty critics have questioned why MOOCs are not subject to more oversight. Many of the initial MOOC providers launched with courses that offered no credit, and so said there was no need for accreditation reviews. Recently, however, MOOCs are being used by students to earn credits and certificates -- although the credit often comes from an institution, not a MOOC provider.

Ana Cristina Pratas's curator insight, November 23, 2013 9:32 AM

"For many low income countries around the world, including Tanzania, MOOCs are being hailed as digital salvation, bringing “elite” education to the masses. Right now in Tanzania, a World Bank supported initiative is piloting in partnership with Coursera, a major online education company, to make MOOCs an ingrained part of their higher education efforts in the country by offering free courses at the university level. In conjunction with the Tanzania Commission for Science and Technology (COSTECH), they are supporting the development of SMART Knowledge Hubs starting in the capital, Dar es Salaam. These hubs are intended to assist in forming a support system for the development of education in IT, and a broader set of 'new economy skills' in the country. This young initiative in many ways encapsulates the growing discord about the viability and legitimacy of making MOOCs a key part of education development.

 

 

 

The 18-year-old activist and author of One Size Does Not Fit All: A Student’s Assessment of School,Nikhil Goyal, says a major issue with MOOCs are that they don’t address foundational issues in education. Echoing Lee and Tarimo’s comments he says MOOCs utilize “the same pedagogical approach to learning.” He later adds, “It’s not very much different in college where we have the 5,000 [people] lecture hall. It’s pretty much the same, and that is an issue for me. If you’re just making what’s already bad enough in colleges and school today, I’m not sure you’re really contributing.” "
