Posthumanism and the MOOC: opening the subject of digital education

Posthumanism and the MOOC: opening the subject of digital education | Easy MOOC | Scoop.it

... this paper suggests that the MOOC project, as a typical example of initiatives in this field, fails to engage with a theory of the subject. As such, uncritical and problematic forms of humanism tend to be assumed in the promotion and delivery of these courses: the expectation of rational and self-directing individuals, with a universal desire for education. This fundamental orthodoxy limits both the understanding of technology and the possibilities for a concept of ‘openness’ in education. Given the global scale of the MOOC, and its high-profile associations with elite universities, the need for critical alternatives is pressing...

Measuring completion and dropout in MOOCs: A learner-centered model

Measuring completion and dropout in MOOCs: A learner-centered model | Easy MOOC | Scoop.it

In MOOCs, there is much discussion about persistence and completion. However,there is yet no consensus and this makes it difficult to analyze the success of this kind of system. At the University Jean Moulin, we needed a framework in order to objectively determine the relevance of our MOOCs from the learner’s point of view. We therefore propose a learner-centered model to define the mechanisms of commitment and a dynamic classification of participants...

Digging deeper into learners’ experiences in MOOCs | Easy MOOC | Scoop.it

Researchers describe with increasing confidence what they observe participants doing in Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs). However, our understanding of learner activities in open courses is limited by researchers’ extensive dependence on log file analyses and clickstream data to make inferences about learner behaviors. Further, the field lacks an empirical understanding of how people experience MOOCs and why they engage in particular activities in in the ways that they do...
