Swiss universities try to catch the MOOC wave

Swiss universities try to catch the MOOC wave | e-learning-ukr | Scoop.it
Free interactive online university courses known as MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses) are quickly spreading far beyond the United States. After Lausanne’s Federal Institute of Technology (EPFL), other Swiss universities are keen to experiment.

Peter Mellow's curator insight, February 7, 2013 2:59 PM

"Konrad Osterwalder, head of teaching development and technology at ETHZ, said there was nothing particularly innovative about current MOOCs, adding that ten-year-old well-made e-learning products were generally better quality."

Massive open online courses (MOOCs) have become a widely recognized as a valuable form of informal learning. The task now at hand is to develop a rich body of research and documented practice so that educational institutions and learners can better benefit from this new form of education.

This issue of the eLearning Papers contributes to that body of knowledge with four in-depth research papers and six reports from the field

Peter B. Sloep's curator insight, April 3, 5:36 AM

February this year, I reported in a scoop http://sco.lt/9LK4Sv ; about my attendance of the European MOOC summit that was held at the EPFL, Lausanne Switzerland.

 

The conference featured many lively discussions on policy and business models. but also on experiences with and research on MOOCs. A number of the research papers now have been published in this special issue of eLearning papers (issue 37). I will not comment on the individual papers and direct you towards the remarks I made in a blog post <http://pbsloep.blogspot.nl/2014/02/european-moocs-stakeholder-summit-2014.html>, in which I briefly discussed some. Please note that these remarks pertain to the unpolished versions  of the papers that featured in the conference proceedings. May I add that the editor is to be commended on producing this collection in such a speedy fashion?

MOOCs, Massive Open Online Courses, An Update of EUA's first paper | Michael Gaebel, EUA

MOOCs, Massive Open Online Courses, An Update of EUA's first paper | Michael Gaebel, EUA | e-learning-ukr | Scoop.it

With the rapid development of MOOCs, EUA (the European University Association) published an occasional paper in January 2013 on MOOCs for discussion at the EUA Council, and for information for EUA membership. The present paper aims to provide an update on these developments, particularly as they concern European higher education.

Peter B. Sloep's curator insight, March 11, 1:59 AM

A year ago in MOOC land is almost ancient history. An update to the EUA’s previous report therefore almost reads as something entirely novel. The present version of the report covers several issues. It provides an overview of the well-known international MOOC facilitators, describes their specific characteristics and then goes on to inventory the European reaction to them. According to the report, about one third of all current MOOCs are of European extraction. It then wonders whether there is a specific European dimension to MOOCs and compares them with MOOCs around the globe. Business models are also paid attention to, an area in which the USA and Europe seem to follow a different course: where venture capital plays a major role in the USA, university initiatives and governmental involvement, including that of the European Union, seem to characterise European MOOC development. Then MOOC pedagogy is discussed, also with an eye on the impact MOOCs may have on higher education in Europe. It is of course this last issue which prompted the European University Association to commission the first and this second report. 

 

There seems to be a flurry of reports that take stock of where we stand with respect to MOOCs. When some claim that MOOCS  have passed the top of the hype cycle and are heading for the trough of disillusionment, reports like this are certainly useful for historical purposes. But for us now, who lack the benefit of historical hindsight, the present report can help to make up our mind about the direction in which we want to head with MOOCs. Do they spell they end of public higher education? Not according to Europeans, it seems. Are they the latest development in a move towards opening up educational resources? Perhaps, and more so in Europe than in the USA.  Are they a boost to the use of technology-enhanced forms of learning in higher education? For sure and everywhere! @pbsloep

Invasion of the MOOCs: The Promises and Perils of Massive Open Online Courses | Parlor Press

Invasion of the MOOCs: The Promises and Perils of Massive Open Online Courses | Parlor Press | e-learning-ukr | Scoop.it

Invasion of the MOOCs: The Promise and Perils of Massive Open Online Courses is one of the first collections of essays about the phenomenon of “Massive Online Open Courses.” Unlike accounts in the mainstream media and educational press, Invasion of the MOOCs is not written from the perspective of removed administrators, would-be education entrepreneurs/venture capitalists, or political pundits. Rather, this collection of essays comes from faculty who developed and taught MOOCs in 2012 and 2013, students who participated in those MOOCs, and academics and observers who have first hand experience with MOOCs and higher education. These twenty-one essays reflect the complexity of the very definition of what is (and what might in the near future be) a “MOOC,” along with perspectives and opinions that move far beyond the polarizing debate about MOOCs that has occupied the media in previous accounts. Toward that end, Invasion of the MOOCs reflects a wide variety of impressions about MOOCs from the most recent past and projects possibilities about MOOCs for the not so distant future.

Trend Report: open and online education furthers quality and flexibility | Nicolai van der Woert, Ria Jacobi & Hester Jelgerhuis , Surf

Trend Report: open and online education furthers quality and flexibility | Nicolai van der Woert, Ria Jacobi & Hester Jelgerhuis , Surf | e-learning-ukr | Scoop.it

(From the foreword) The global development towards open education dates back more than ten years. In 2006, several Dutch universities followed suit with the publication of OpenCourseWare. Although several institutions had already embraced the concept of open education for some time, the issue seems to have truly taken hold in the Dutch higher education sector since 2013, largely due to the growing popularity of Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs).

The Trend Report supports this conclusion. The report accurately describes the latest developments and challenges facing the Dutch higher education sector in relation to open and online education. The articles also outline a concrete vision on future developments, such as the effects of recognising MOOC results, the impact of digitisation on postgraduate education and other forms of disruptive innovation.

Peter B. Sloep's curator insight, March 11, 2:51 AM

This is the third trend report in a row  that Surf, in which Dutch higher education institutions collaborate on educational innovation with ICTs,  has published. It features contributions by academics and support staff throughout higher education in the Netherlands, thus reflecting the current state of the art. Although the perspective is wider than MOOCed education, the term MOOC features 430 times, at least once on almost all of its 69 pages. It goes to show that in the Netherlands, but likely in Europe as a whole, there is an intimate link between MOOCs and open education. ‘Open’ here means making use of open licenses (such a creative commons licenses), it stands in contrast with ‘open’ in the sense of for free, without cost, which applies to the courses of the large MOOC platforms (see also the EUA report next http://sco.lt/6QxgvZ). 

 

As indicated, all the topics covered in the report refer to MOOCs. To name a few of them:  flexibility and quality, postgraduate education, apps for open education, economics of open education, platforms, recognition of credits, testing and assessment, MOOCs in formal education, learning analytics, student perspectives, privacy and other legal issues. As with the previous trend reports, a useful collection of insights. @pbsloep

Manuel León Urrutia's curator insight, March 24, 6:18 AM

A trend analysis on MOOCs from all perspectives: institutional, educational, business, and technical. Interesting to see the insights of dutch scholars on how MOOCs can offer quality education, how can become sustainable business models. Of special interest is the second article about the potential of MOOCs to change education economics, supported with figures.
