MOOCs and Credentialing: A Revolutionary Perspective

MOOCs and Credentialing: A Revolutionary Perspective | Easy MOOC | Scoop.it

...A number of parallels exist between the new frontier of Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) and their recognition as “academic currency” and the fate of the doomed Continental. Just as the revolutionary banknotes lacked credibility, the assessment instruments used by students to prove knowledge and mastery of MOOCs continue to face an uphill battle for authenticity. Until these issues are overcome, online education will be, in the eyes of many, “not be worth a Continental”...

5 Ways to Evaluate MOOCs on a Resume

5 Ways to Evaluate MOOCs on a Resume | Easy MOOC | Scoop.it

Guillaume Dumas, a 28-year-old Canadian, made headlines recently when he announced that he had obtained an Ivy League education for free by sneaking in to classes at prestigious universities. His story — coupled with the skyrocketing costs of a college education — raised serious doubts about the value of a diploma. With tuition costs rising and more than a trillion dollars of student debt in America, alternate routes to achieving a top-tier education are increasingly attractive. The big question for HR: Should we start worrying less about an applicant's degree and more about the knowledge an applicant brings to the company? ...

From Disruptor to Bestie: How Instructors are Learning to Leverage MOOCs | Easy MOOC | Scoop.it

Only a handful of sessions at SXSWedu this year used “MOOC” in their titles or descriptions, but those four letters were still mentioned quite a bit. It is safe to say, MOOCs have been passed over as the disruptor du jour of higher education. But this is a good thing, because now we can get on with the real work to figure out how to best study, utilize and improve their role in education.

Here are a few of the takeaways I gathered about MOOCs during the conference: ...

MOOCs and OERs for web talent: efficacy, acknowledgement and fit-for-purpose - A hybrid open panel at OER15

MOOCs and OERs for web talent: efficacy, acknowledgement and fit-for-purpose - A hybrid open panel at OER15 | Easy MOOC | Scoop.it

Europe is facing a shortage of a million workers in the web and technology sectors, while youth unemployment remains a persistent societal and economic issue. Are MOOCs the answer to these issues? Or are they one of many means to address the shortage in web talent - but as part of an ecosystem which includes free and paid courses, self-paced learning resources, learning communities, and formal education providers? Are current conceptions of vocational training, certification and acknowledgement fit for purpose, and are MOOCs challenging these conceptions or reinforcing them? 

Our panel at OER15 will debate these questions.
