Coursera President Daphne Koller: 2014 Is The Year MOOCs Will Come Of Age | TechCrunch

Coursera President Daphne Koller: 2014 Is The Year MOOCs Will Come Of Age | TechCrunch | e-learning and moocs | Scoop.it

Wilko Dijkhuis's insight:

An interesting interview with Daphne Koller.
(the interesting part start at 14:10)


14:14
Q: what does this all mean for universities?
A: (paraphrasing) universities see that we are not cannibalizing their existing market  . . . the vast majority of our students already have completed their formal education . . . they are looking to re-skill themselves  . . . the universities use Coursera to reach this untapped markets
A (14:58) What I think we are going to do for universities . . . is transform the way they teach, we are going to be a catalyst for change, moving away from boring lectures to more experiential teaching and interactive
Q(15:38): how does that change the role of the professor?
A: they will have to learn a new set of skills to teach blended classrooms. . . the data show that blended classrooms are considerably more effective . . . content will be delivered online, schools will add real value to the learning process with labs, discussion groups, debates, projects  . . . even professors that are not charismatic in the classroom can do very well because video lecturing is more like an intimate conversation in your office than a performance on stage.

Sebastian Thrun with a data update on Udacity and San Jose State University's for-credit online college courses in the Summer 2013 pilot.
Wilko Dijkhuis's insight:


Results of new SJSU approach appear drastically better.

(but probably due to selection/enrollment of more talented/experienced students).

 

So: SJSU is still comparing apples with oranges.

No real conclusions gained
(except that good students perform better than poor students)

New Study Shows Few MOOCs Students Follow Through | Penn GSE

December 5, 2013 - Emerging data from a Penn GSE study show that massive open online courses (MOOCs) have relatively few active users, that user “engagement” falls off dramatically—especially after the first 1-2 weeks of a course—and that few users persist to the course end.

Are Universities Going the Way of Record Labels?

Are Universities Going the Way of Record Labels? | e-learning and moocs | Scoop.it
The Internet’s power to unbundle content and increase personal choice transformed the music industry—and it’s doing the same thing to higher education.
Wilko Dijkhuis's insight:

Interesting strategy talk
But I'm left with the impression that these strategy experts do not really get the education thing

Hint: the primary process of tertiary education is not the professor who teaches, but the student who studies.
Corollary: students are not consumers, they are the producers.

So the relevant analogy is not listing to recorded music,
but learning to play an instrument for yourself.

Wilko Dijkhuis's insight:

This is much bigger than Khan Academy or algebra


Dr. Carol Dweck of Stanford University has been studying people’s mindsets towards learning for decades. She has found that most people adhere to one of two mindsets: fixed or growth.


The Internet is a dream for someone with a growth mindset. Between Khan Academy, MOOCs, and others, there is unprecedented access to endless content to help you grow your mind. However, society isn’t going to fully take advantage of this without growth mindsets being more prevalent. So what if we actively tried to change that? What if we began using whatever means are at our disposal to start performing growth mindset interventions on everyone we cared about?
