Brainstorm in Progress: What Part of MOOC Don't You Understand?

Brainstorm in Progress: What Part of MOOC Don't You Understand? | Digital Collaboration and the 21st C. | Scoop.it

Educators who have not taken a MOOC (Massively Open Online Course) and do not understand their history, are currently writing about these courses which is causing them to be inaccurately represented in the press. The main problem is there is all the publicity around Coursera and Edx that ignores other kinds of MOOCs.

[...] "MOOCs, on the other hand, are more like fancy textbooks. They are all about the mass market and not the rich connectivity that established online courses offer their limited collection of students."
This is a gross generalization of MOOCs. I would go so far as to call the statement above "unfounded hyperbole." The first MOOC I participated in "Connectivism and Connective Knowledge 2008" was one of the most interactive and engaging experiences in my education.

Interesting point. Some MOOCs (us included) already solved some of the problems Couersera and Edx face such as proving college credit for the online college courses.
plerudulier's comment, November 27, 2012 11:40 AM
Proving college credit to enter online college courses as well as accreditation of attended online courses are and will be points to seriously address if MOOCs (whatever their kinds, xMOOCs or cMOOCs) want to 'challenge' traditional formats.
