Pourquoi il ne faut pas traduire l’acronyme MOOC?

Pourquoi il ne faut pas traduire l’acronyme MOOC? | Easy MOOC | Scoop.it

Souvent quand un nouveau terme, un nouvel acronyme, une nouvelle notion nous vient d’outre atlantique le premier réflexe est de le franciser.

MOOCs no longer massive, still attract millions | Easy MOOC | Scoop.it

... So MOOCs are gradually being transformed from virtual classrooms to a Netflix-like experience. Most are now offered in a self-paced format or, in the case of Coursera courses, switched to a regular schedule, with new sessions starting automatically on a bi-weekly or monthly basis. If a student can’t finish a session, all their work is simply transferred to a new session.This has led to a significant increase in the number of courses students can register for and start almost immediately...

But Thrun and other MOOC founders seem less than concerned about living up to their earlier, lofty rhetoric or continuing that tradition of bringing education to an underserved population. True, they haven’t entirely abandoned their rhetoric about equal access to educational opportunities. But they’ve shifted to what’s becoming a more familiar Silicon Valley narrative about the future of employability: a cheap and precarious labor force. That’s the unfortunate reality of “Uber for Education.”...
