Does teaching presence matter in a MOOC? - by Terry Anderson

A recent study of a Coursera MOOC is really interesting in that it implemented a random assignment of student to 2 conditions – one with no teacher interaction with the students and the other with teacher and teacher assistant interaction in forums. The study is

Tomkin, J. H., & Charlevoix, D. (2014). Do professors matter?: using an a/b test to evaluate the impact of instructor involvement on MOOC student outcomes. Paper presented at the Proceedings of the first ACM conference on Learning@ scale conference. Retrieved from http://dl.acm.org/citation.cfm?id=2566245


Via Ana Cristina Pratas
Ulrike Grabe's insight:

"The study concluded that teacher presence had no significant relation to course completion, most badges awarded, intent to register in subsequent MOOCs or course satisfaction."

 

"However, the findings is predicted by my Interaction Equivalency Theory in which I argue that if one of the three forms of student interaction (student-student, student-teacher, student content) is at a high level, the other two can be reduced or even eliminated."

 

That it is possible to learn on one's own is not exactly a surprise. Otherwise there would be no autodidacts, nobody would ever have been able to learn from a book. Surprising, though, that the presence of a teacher seems to have no impact on the learning outcome. On the other hand... students taking part in MOOCs usually have an academic background already. So they developed learning strategies and are able to compensate the absence of a teacher by interacting with other students or looking for other sources.

The study concluded that teacher presence had no significant relation to course completion, most badges awarded, intent to register in subsequent MOOCs or course satisfaction.  This is of course bad news for teacher’s unions and those convinced that a live teacher must be present in order for significant learning to occur. However, the findings is predicted by myInteraction Equivalency Theory in which I argue that if one of the three forms of student interaction (student-student, student-teacher, student content) is at a high level, the other two can be reduced or even eliminated.  Adding additional forms of interaction may increase satisfaction (though it seems not to have done so in this experiment), but it most certainly also increases costs and thus decreases accessibility."

Does teaching presence matter in a MOOC? - by Terry Anderson
Dr. Pamela Rutledge's curator insight, March 23, 11:20 AM

Anderson has a provocative post discussing a recent study by Tomkin and Charlevoix (2014) reporting that MOOC course satisfaction, completion or decision to enroll in another MOOC had no relationship with teacher interaction or presence in the MOOC.  This kind of thing always gets teachers' panties in a bunch, as we know.  Anderson argues that these results are predicted by his "Interaction Equivalency Theory where one of the three forms of student interaction (student-student, student-teacher, student content) is at a high level, the other two can be reduced or even eliminated. "  As an online prof, I would argue that to get the equivalency over to the student-student or student-content side of the triangle, the course and content have to be very artfully and intentionally designed by the teacher with a great investment of time and skill.  So there's presence of interaction and there's presence by design.  It's presence by design to structure social and content engagement that allows the more traditional 'teacher presence' to be missing.  The exciting thing is that is has much leverage.  As a side note, people shouldn't assume that these arguments are meant to throw teachers out of the classroom and make all classes instructorless.  Humans are social animals and good teachers provide mentoring and social connection in ways far beyond course content that are difficult in the scale of a MOOC.   These are important questions, however, as part of the quest to find ways of making quality education available to the millions who don't have the access to educational opportunities most of us take for granted.

Don't just think question types... think questions... then types

Don't just think question types... think questions... then types | e-learning in higher education and beyond | Scoop.it

In my role, I see many module leaders present themselves with assessment questions that have been written to fit the question types offered by Blackboard (Course Resources).  In my opinion this does not always lead to effective assessment as what we are presenting to students is a collection of questions that Blackboard can handle rather than an assessment.  For example I recently saw 3 questions that collectively was supposed to ask about the students’ knowledge of the statistical averages.  The question asked was ‘What is the mean / medium / mode of the following numbers?’.  This was followed by a range of numbers and the student could pick a number from a selection presented.

This had been written after whoever wrote it had seen the question types and rather than thinking ‘what do I need to assess?’ (i.e. the students’ ability to differentiate between the different statistical averages), just simply written some simple maths questions which could be guessed at.

Tudo o que precisa é de um browser, uma ligação à rede e alguma criatividade. Um dos seus pontos fortes e onde se destaca da concorrência é a manipulação das transições entre slides mas permite igualmente o uso de coleções nativas de efeitos.

Strut funciona perfeitamente em todos os suportes - PCs, Tablets e Smartphones - e não carece de registo. Pode gravar as apresentações no seu computador, importar e voltar a editá-las.
