The problem is that the decision makers often don’t have the marketing skills to differentiate between different addressable audiences. External adult learners may not want a long-winded, over-engineered, six to ten week course on anything.

luiy's curator insight, March 25, 2013 9:07 AM

I was curious about how this pattern has played out in the actual grants, so I read through several lists of the grants ODH has awarded since it was formed in 2007. I’ll admit that I was surprised by how exactly this funding conforms, almost entirely, to the narrow definition.

 

I couldn’t find an easy way to download all of the data, so here I’ve compiled a table of the ODH grants in 2010 (I’ve uploaded the complete data in anExcel spreadsheet of 2010 ODH grants). I’ve broken them down into categories that I’ve tried to make as fair as possible. There are just under $5 million in grants; of that about 1/3 goes to archives, 1/3 to tool-building, and 1/3 to workshops; in terms of the number of grants awarded the percentages are slightly different, but still go almost entirely to these three activities. There is exactly 1 grant that can reasonably be said to foreground interpretation or analysis. There are none that “study the impact of digital technology.” Based on my reading of the recent NEH records, this is a representative sample of ODH funding, and it is important to reiterate that while it by no means encompasses all of the grants NEH awarded that touched on digital topics, it does include all of the ODH grants, and therefore all of the grants formally labeled “Digital Humanities.” What is especially notable is exactly what the change in ODH mission wording would lead one to expect: there is virtually no funding for interpretation, analysis, or tool use as a primary activity. (The only topic that arguably might be framed misleadingly by my rough categorization is pedagogy, but only very subtly so: between a third and a half of the 12 workshops can be said to have pedagogy as a focus of the workshop being held–that is, they are workshops for teachers and other educators– but as Katherine Harris so rightly keeps emphasizing, this is not direct funding for pedagogical projects.)

Patricia LeClaire's comment, April 8, 2013 12:50 PM
I've enrolled in two MOOC courses - partly because the topics were relevant to my work, but also to experience a MOOC from the "inside" as both a student and an instructional designer. I was particularly interested in opportunities for interaction (student-instructor, student-student, student-content, student-technology) and collaboration.

In one course, focused on a subject area with which I'm very familiar, students formed virtual groups around mutual interests and professional objectives, developed projects which were evaluated according to clear guidelines, and the projects were made available to all enrollees.. This course also had very active student-generated discussions on focused topics. What characterized this MOOC was the flexibility provided to the students for creating multiple ways to interact and collaborate.

The second MOOC focused on topics that were highly technical and mostly how-to with little discussion of why-to. Interaction among students was considerably less, and I was unsuccessful in either forming or joining a group (virtual or F2F local) to expand my understanding of context and implementation issues. While the content was interesting ( I particularly liked the video lectures and animations), I found it a much more isolating experience and did not complete the course.

Pat, thanks for sharing those first hand experiences. Very valuable insights!
Dawne Tortorella's curator insight, April 10, 2013 8:02 PM

This blog post does discuss some reasons why students enroll in MOOCs, but doesn't really talk much about why they drop out. 

 

One big reason - FRUSTRATION.  When a learner gets stuck and can't get individualized meaningful feedback, it creates a failed learning experience. I think we discount how important those personal encounters are in helping learners.
