MOOCs: Who’s using MOOCs? 10 different target audiences

MOOCs: Who’s using MOOCs? 10 different target audiences | education | Scoop.it

The problem is that the decision makers often don’t have the marketing skills to differentiate between different addressable audiences. External adult learners may not want a long-winded, over-engineered, six to ten week course on anything. Life’s too short. Yet academics are used to producing courses of this semester length. What many may want are mini MOOCs. They may want them to be asynchronous starting and ending when convenient for them. This, of course, is exactly what’s happening. All in all, however, the good news is that MOOCs are forcing HE institutions to change. MOOCs may very well be the force that makes them more open, transparent and relevant. There will, of course, be a backlash, but the digital genie is out of the bottle - MOOCs are here to stay.

What is OER (Open Educational Resource)? - EdTechReview

What is OER (Open Educational Resource)? - EdTechReview | education | Scoop.it

Open educational resources (OERs) are digital materials available for reuse and repurposing in teaching, researching and learning. These materials are made available for use, reuse, adaptation, and sharing through open licenses that allow them to be used through means not permitted under copyright, so the flow of knowledge is boundless.

In other words, Open educational resources (OERs) are free and openly licensed educational materials that can be used for teaching, learning, research, and other purposes.

Open educational resources (OER) can be anything from complete courses to recorded lectures, essay questions, discussion topics or reading lists. Teaching staff can 'pick and mix' these to suit their own purposes.
