With SPOCs, HarvardX tries making MOOCs smaller | Easy MOOC | Scoop.it

...Since the program’s launch, a number of courses at HarvardX have tested a simple solution to many of MOOC detractors’ biggest complaints: scaling down, not up.

No, Sesame Street Was Not the First MOOC | Easy MOOC | Scoop.it

The teachers’ role in distributed courses extends to forming such a network by facilitating communication that connects learners and their separate personal learning environments scattered around the Internet. The study reported in this paper examined who fulfilled such an influential role in a particular distributed MOOC – a connectivist course (cMOOC) offered in 2011...
