This research paper describes the results of a research project whose key objective is to identify the main theories of teaching and learning, namely those that form the basis and development of e-Learning contents at Portuguese institutions. Moreover, the project addresses two types of research (i.e. qualitative and quantitative research), by concentrating on specific case studies. The mechanisms used for data collation are semi-structured interviews and document analysis. The analyses of the results point to the existence of a lack of cohesion between teaching and learning theories. In terms of the production of e-contents, there is a lack of explicit learning theories or models that are formally adopted at Portuguese institutions. We examine various theoretical issues within the same institution, such as as behaviorist, cognitive or constructivist models. The majority of the institutions reported that they had adopted constructivist, instructional design, learning style theory or learning objective models to produce and organize e-contents.

I Failed My Online Course—But Learned A Lot About Internet Education

I Failed My Online Course—But Learned A Lot About Internet Education | educacion-y-ntic | Scoop.it

By Selena Larson, 3/8/14

 

MOOCs, or massive open online courses, are quickly becoming technology darlings. Companies like Coursera, Udacity, edX and others provide college-caliber online courses taught by professors from the most prestigious universities. Millions of students interested in pursuing inexpensive post-secondary education can take classes on anything from nutritional health to machine learning—right from the comfort of their own home.

It’s not just about learning new skills. "Graduates" of these classes can receive paid course certificates or accreditation, which is always great to showcase on LinkedIn. Some organizations, like Udacity, have even partnered with universities to create entirely MOOC-based degrees. 

I registered for a five-week course on Coursera, Terrorism and Counterterrorism: Comparing Theory And Practice. I’m interested in global politics and how the definition and scope of terrorism has changed since September 11, 2001, and since the topic was equally intriguing and different from the tech community I’m knee-deep in, I figured this class would provide a good introduction to massive open online courses.

The course was available under Coursera’s “Signature Track” program, so I paid $49 to receive a certificate of completion when I passed the class. It was a waste of $49.

I failed my first MOOC. 

It wasn’t for lack of trying. When I first signed up, I took it very seriously.

Lessons Learned about Moocs.  

Wilko Dijkhuis's curator insight, May 26, 2014 11:41 AM

[A very intriguing report of MOOC participation.]

. . . I failed my first MOOC. It wasn't for lack of trying. . . .  I took it very seriously. My Coursera professor ... provided great insight, paired it with interesting ... readings. . . . In my entire college career, I never failed a class. I pulled all-nighters to study for tests and write essays, and all the work I put in eventually paid off. ... My Coursera class was a totally different story.

[So far, so good, but then she continues:]

. .  . I'll admit it: I had minimal motivation.

[Here it is getting intriguing.
How exactly - or even by approximation - can one combine taking it seriously and providing great insights with minimal interest?]

 

. . . And reading on:

 

[How can a not-early-aborted college career be reconciled with the structureless essay she submitted? (there is a link to the essay in her article).

How can she be clueless why her peer reviewers did not give her a pass?
What does this tell us about her college - or high school - education?

Is the Coursera class being "a totally different story" proof that Coursera - educationally speaking - sucks; or is an indication that it can - crudely - detect talent? ]

Very Intriguing . . . in what universe this is possible?
