Abstract:

Online courses are gradually becoming a central aspect of education, from high schools to major university doctoral programs. As online courses are embraced to serve curriculum that focuses on spirituality and wisdom traditions, questions arise as to how the teacher can encourage contemplative online learning environments. This paper is an effort to outline ways in which the body, social isolation, identity and aesthetics in online education can be approached mindfully.

Who’s Afraid of the Big Bad MOOC? – The Conversation - Blogs - The Chronicle of Higher Education

Who’s Afraid of the Big Bad MOOC? – The Conversation - Blogs - The Chronicle of Higher Education | e-learning-ukr | Scoop.it

Are MOOCs and other online materials a threat to quality public higher education, and to our role as professors? The members of the philosophy department at San Jose State University think so. They recently issued an open letter to Michael Sandel, of Harvard University, objecting to his role in encouraging the use of MOOCs at public universities. The controversy stems from San Jose State’s contract with edX, a company that provides MOOCs, including one based on Sandel’s course on justice at Harvard. San Jose State has agreed to use materials provided by edX, but the philosophy department has refused to use Sandel’s online lectures in its courses.

What’s A MOOC? The Next Frontier to Source, Engage & Hire Talent | e-learning-ukr | Scoop.it
MOOCs as recruiting channels

Companies such as LinkedIn saw the recruiting potential of MOOCs last year. LinkedIn partnered with Coursera, edX, Lynda, Pearson, Skillsoft, Udacity and Udemy to create a system where talent who complete an online class receive an email with a certification field that includes details of the course. This information can automatically populate the individual’s LinkedIn profile for prospective employers to see. The potential for recruiters and staffing curators reaches far beyond that.

MOOCs, already a major source for training and continued development, are poised to become the next frontier in sourcing, engaging and hiring talent with brand-name online certifications and degrees.
