A new classification schema for MOOCs

This paper considers the pedagogies associated with different types of Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs). It argues that the current discourse around the concept of xMOOCs (primarily based around interaction with content and essentially adopting a behaviourist learning approach), and cMOOCs (which focus on harnessing the power of social media and interaction with peers, adopting a connectivist learning approach), is an inadequate way of describing the variety of MOOCs and the ways in which learners engage with them. It will provide a brief history of the emergence of MOOCs and the key stakeholders. It will introduce an alternative means of categorising MOOCs, based on their key characteristics...

ғelιх c ѕeyғarтн's curator insight, September 6, 2:15 AM

#MOOC extend the opportunities for education not only to basic digital literacy that every citizen should have, but might even be extended into processes of political will-formation. Call me naive, but couldn't a lot of political rhetoric and faux argument become superfluous, if one instead offered a (connectivist) format for peer-learning about a given issue?
