Whether people admit it or not, the way the world uses energy is unsustainable: Energy demand keeps going up as fossil fuel reserves go down, and science is racing to find an answer.

Five Myths about MOOCs

Five Myths about MOOCs | eLearning at eCampus ULg | Scoop.it

"MOOCs face a storm of opposition that underestimates their challenge to traditional education. Given their popularity, why are there so many myths about MOOCsfloating around? Debunking the myths about MOOCs leaves us free to challenge our assumptions — and our imaginative possibilities — by questioning the seeming inevitability of educational orthodoxy."

Peter B. Sloep's curator insight, July 1, 2013 11:57 AM

And that is exactly what this blog post by Rita Kop aka Welsh Cloggy is about, a clickable list of publications focused on one specific MOOC, PLENK2010. For those to whom this doesn't ring a bell, beware. The publications are about cMOOCs, the connectivist variant of MOOCs, which are almost the antithesis of xMOOCs, the ones about which there is so much to do. Not only are cMOOCs the older ones, these articles also provide a lot of pause to think about how we may or could or perhaps even should take xMOOCs forward to provide a less rigid and more social experience to the learners.

L'enthousiasme pour les cours en ligne ouverts et massifs retombe. En cause, le faible taux de réussite. De nouveaux concepts -payants, plus courts- font leur apparition.

The idea that massive open online courses (MOOCs) provide a less valid learning experience than face-to-face courses is a furphy. Here are some reasons why the critics are wrong.

Abi James's curator insight, June 3, 2013 6:33 AM

"Overall, the evidence is that there is no reason to believe that MOOCs provide any less a valid learning experience than face-to-face courses."


But are students prepared with the skills and tools needed to studt from online resources? The jump from classroom teaching to lectures is difficult enough but most students have no experience or strategies for learning from online courses without human interaction to guide them.


António Maneira's curator insight, June 18, 2013 2:26 AM

That's it!

There is no strong apparent reason for MOOCs to be less valid then face-to-face courses.

It is an e-learning model for great numbers that in most cases attracts lots of people which is great to researchers as it increase significance of quantitative research studies.
