Heard of this before.  I must check out what CRAAP stands for and see if I can use it with my students.

MOOCs (free online courses that are open to anyone) are more popular than Justin Bieber right now, but why aren't students finishing the courses they signed up for?

Elaine Watkins's curator insight, October 24, 2013 7:29 PM

I was one of the 36% of students who completed the Equine Nutrition course. I can tell you why I was able to... It was because there was excellent support from the lecturers, easy to access video lectures, no hard deadlines until the end of the course, meaning there was much more flexibility for people, like me, who work full time and can't always complete quizzes by 6pm each Monday for example. I could do it in my own time, as long as I stayed within the course duration and I found that some weeks I had much more time and could complete 2 weeks worth of readings & quizzes. 

In contrast, I just attempted to complete an Animal Behaviour course, but unfortunately due to hard deadlines each Monday, I was unable to complete quizzes on time and therefore could not achieve the marks necessary to pass, so I gave up halfway through. I have still completed readings and watched lectures, but with no result as the quizzes did not count after the weekly hard deadlines. Obviously many people had the same issue as me, because out of 24950, only

1428 people completed the course.

I believe course designers need to revisit their courses and ensure they are flexible enough for full time workers to do in their own time.

Patricia Christian's curator insight, February 8, 2:45 AM

An integral part of any online learning environment is the social synergy created via communication and discussion.  This is where deep reflection and learning take place.  Are students not feeling connected.  Are they collaborating and creating something new with the knowledge they have gained and sharing it with others?  Learning must me meaningful and applicable.

Great self-assessment tool, developed by the University of Exeter, for students to measure their digtial literacy skills. Once completed, students can find out if they're a 'Digital Dodger', 'Digital Guru', 'Information Junkie', 'Career Builder', 'Media Mogul' or 'Online Networker'. A useful starting point for targeting more focused support.

Exciting stuff for Scotland and Open Badges contained in this press release from the Scottish Qualifications Authority (SQA) and Mozilla. As far I'm aware, this statement of intent on Open Badges is a world first for a national awarding and qualifications authority.

 

The SQA are active members of the Open Badges in Scottish Education Group (OBSEG), which is made up of members from schools, colleges, universities, local and national government, educational agencies, regulatory bodies, professional associations, Open Badges projects, employer bodies and Mozilla. The SQA contributes to discussion with the wider sector on thinking around Open Badges through this group and as convener of the group, I'm personally delighted to see the SQA providing a public 'permission to innovate' for the education sector in Scotland.

Via Ana Cristina Pratas, Dennis T OConnor, flea palmer
terrymc's insight:

I think there is value in a system that captures skills development evidence on a lifelong basis that many providers could work with. Just because the term 'Badges' is used should not allow it to be trivialised. It could fill a valuable gap that enables employers to find graduates who can meet their immediate and long-term needs. I am following this to see how it works out in practice.

Useful post as badges are something we are considering using for some of the courses we run.

Dr. David Gentile's curator insight, October 15, 2013 8:40 AM

How might education change if Open-Badges become as valuable as a College or University Degree? What about High School? the future of education is moving towards greater individualization while the "Education Systems" move to greater standardization and making the experience the same for all learners. Doesn't this create a conflict?

terrymc's insight:

A new european initiative to improve the access to Open Education across the EU members. How this may work in practice will take some time to settle out but it needs to be valued appropriately by all the institutions and their staff. It needs to build upon the existing (repository) networks and not compete with them.
