MOOCs - Emerging Trends in Assessment & Accreditation

Ana Cristina Pratas's curator insight, November 5, 4:42 AM

Abstract


In 2014, Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) are expected to witness a phenomenal growth in student registration compared to the previous years (Lee, Stewart, & Claugar-Pop, 2014). As MOOCs continue to grow in number, there has been an increasing focus on assessment and evaluation. Because of the huge enrollments in a MOOC, it is impossible for the instructor to grade homework and evaluate each
student. The enormous data generated by learners in a MOOC can be used for developing and refining automated assessment techniques. As a result, “Smart Systems” are being designed to track and predict learner behavior while completing
MOOC assessments. These automated assessments for MOOCs can automatically score and provide feedback to students multiple choice questions, mathematical
problems and essays. Automated assessments help teachers with grading and also support students in the learning processes. These assessments are prompt,
consistent, and support objectivity in assessment and evaluation (Ala-Mutka, 2005). This paper reviews the emerging trends in MOOC assessments and their application in supporting student learning and achievement. The paper concludes by
describing how assessment techniques in MOOCs can help to maximize learning
outcomes.

Seven ways that video can transform learning at work


Via Ana Cristina Pratas
more...
Ana Cristina Pratas's curator insight, November 8, 2:59 AM

"1. Interviews
People love looking at and listening to other people, particularly if they are providing useful information concisely and in a relaxed, informal manner. At its simplest you can just point a camera at an interviewee and do the simplest trimming and titling to finish the job. For a more polished look, with the interviewer in shot, you’ll need to shoot at different distances and angles and cut between them. For a more free-ranging discussion, bring in a small audience to ask their own additional questions.

2. Presentations
If you’re lucky enough to catch an interesting presentation live, then that’s great, but if not, then video is a great secondary option. The simplest method is to have the presenter record a narration to their slides and export that to video, but you can achieve a more engaging result by alternating between the presenter speaking directly to camera and the slides.

3. Drama
Acted sequences are perfect for depicting interactions between people, perhaps to demonstrate an interpersonal skill, to stimulate discussion in the classroom, or as the basis for an interactive scenario. Drama is one form of video where you would be well advised to bring in the professionals, to work both sides of the camera. This will be relatively costly, but there are plenty of situations in which this is money very well spent.

4. Physical demonstrations
A very simple use of video is to have an expert demonstrate a practical skill or the workings of a piece of equipment, particularly when this would not be easy to accomplish in a classroom (you might be talking about a crane or a tank!).

5. Documentaries
A great use of video is to take the viewer to places they could not be expected to visit in person, perhaps to see how work is carried out in different parts of their organisation. Documentaries could provide a record of important projects and initiatives, or tell a powerful story. Like drama, the production of documentary video is not trivial and best left to experts but, again, the expense is often worth it.

6. Screencasts
A screencast is a demonstration of some aspect of a piece of software, usually with a voiceover. These can be extremely simple to produce using software such as Adobe Captivate, Camtasia and any number of low-cost alternatives. Historically, in a corporate context, these have traditionally been regarded as elements in e-learning programmes but, as we have seen on YouTube, they work well as videos.

7. Explainers
An explainer is an animated video that aims to clarify a concept, principle or process. The best early examples came from Common Craft (check them out on YouTube), who used a technique called ‘papermation’ to present explanations of complex technical subjects. Now you can produce similar results using software such as PowToon."

Dron, Jon & Anderson, Terry - Teaching Crowds. Learning and Social Media - 2014 (PDF)

Dron, Jon & Anderson, Terry - Teaching Crowds. Learning and Social Media - 2014 (PDF) | e-learning-ukr | Scoop.it

"In Teaching Crowds, Dron and Anderson introduce a new model for understanding and exploiting the pedagogical potential of Web-based technologies, one that rests on connections — on networks and collectives — rather than on separations. Recognizing that online learning both demands and affords new models of teaching and learning, the authors show how learners can engage with social media platforms to create an unbounded field of emergent connections. These connections empower learners, allowing them to draw from one another’s expertise to formulate and fulfill their own educational goals. In an increasingly networked world, developing such skills will, they argue, better prepare students to become self-directed, lifelong learners."
