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.

... 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.

Curation as a tool for teaching and learning

What is curation anyway, and how can it be used as a tool for student and teacher learning? This essay will investigate what curation is and the different contexts it is used in. Why is it important; who are the curators, what motivates them and what makes a great curator? What processes and tools are used for curation and what digital literacies are required for successful curation? It will conclude with an investigation into ways teachers can use curation both with and for their students and as a tool for their own professional learning and a brief look at some curation tools.
