Rising or falling tracing mooc trends in social media

... Although we have learned much about what happens inside such courses less is known about the echoes that spread outside the course walls. Questions remain as to what stories are being told, and by whom, about MOOCs through social media. A gap in the literature exists around what people are saying about MOOCs in Twitter for example. This is an important topic to address because any comprehensive evaluation of the impact of MOOCs should incorporate an evidence base inclusive of informal networks such as social media that draws on the testimony of all MOOC stakeholders including the learners, teachers, researchers, institutions and platform providers...

The rhizome: A problematic metaphor for teaching and learning in a MOOC | Easy MOOC | Scoop.it

... Our findings reveal that many participants could relate to and welcomed the anti-authoritarian, anti-hierarchical characteristics of the rhizome, but that knowledge and understanding of Deleuze and Guattari’s conceptual principles of the rhizome was more difficult. Lack of engagement with theory and lack of appreciation of the incompleteness and complexities of the rhizome metaphor can result in negative consequences, such as imbalances in power relations and increased vulnerability for some learners.

Inge de Waard keynote on using MOOC in high school / secondary school

This keynote was given at ITSligo, Ireland, to highlight a project which integrates existing MOOC in k12 classrooms to increase digital skills and lifelong learning capacities for 16 - 17 year old students. This project uses a three step approach allowing young students to learn what MOOCs are, which platforms exist, and how to interact with others. At first there is a lot of teacher support, where at the end of the academic year, the students select and follow a MOOC of their own choosing...

Linking online identities and content in connectivist MOOCs across multiple social media platforms

In this paper, we examine how multiple social media platforms are being used for formal and informal learning by examining data from two connectivist MOOCs (or cMOOCs). Our overarching goal is to develop and evaluate methods for learning analytics to detect and study collaborative learning processes. For this paper, we focus on how to link multiple online identities of learners and their contributions across several social media platforms in order to study their learning behaviours in open online environments....
