Fiona Harvey's curator insight, January 7, 2014 3:01 AM

They mention the SJSU experiment with Udacity here but I think its important to note that the results led to a redesign and rethink of the content and delivery mechanisms - it was too hard and needed more support. But I think there is also a point to be had that a new model of learning could be adapted to the MOOC format to provide a more supportive learning experience and not just for the 'free' learners but for the on campus students as well

A Mooc degree - there's a comment that its not the same as degree standard but once employers discover this route to education, who's to say that they won't select which MOOCs they would like to see prospective employees take?

MOOC's and the McDonaldization of Global Higher Education - The Chronicle of Higher Education | Jason Lane & Kevin Kinser

MOOC's and the McDonaldization of Global Higher Education - The Chronicle of Higher Education | Jason Lane & Kevin Kinser | (e)-learning environments | Scoop.it

"[…] thousands of students across the world taking the same course, with the same content, from the same instructor. And that is the problem. MOOC’s are now at the forefront of the McDonaldization of higher education. […] MOOC’s do little to foster engagement or cross-cultural understanding, and in most cases don’t offer students a credential. […] A multinational university can’t simply be a broadcasting service to recipients in other countries; it must engage with and learn from other cultures. The “massive” element of MOOC’s and most other technological initiatives has a homogenizing effect that makes this sort of engagement unlikely. […] MOOC’s may provide access to a world-class education, but the product is prepackaged and standardized. And, because it is readily available, it risks diminishing both the diversification of the higher-education sector and the advancement of globally engaged students and institutions."

 

Comment: elaborate argument, summarised in the above, why it is not a good idea to see MOOCs as the solution to the low quality of education in some parts of the world (peter sloep, @pbsloep)

Another day, another MOOC platform coming from Stanford. But don't roll your eyes!

 

Comment: Class2Go is a new MOOC platform - the technical infrastructure on which an xMOOC runs. According to its developers, it distinguishes itself from the rest in being "open-source, portable and interoperable". Go see for yourself at http://class2go.stanford.edu (peter sloep, @pbsloep)
