Five Myths about MOOCs

Five Myths about MOOCs | Personal [e-]Learning Environments | Scoop.it

"The Great Backlash against massive open online courses, better known as MOOCs, is in full swing. After an initial flurry of positive press, a firestorm of opposition has mobilized against them. MOOCs, we are told, are either a juggernaut threatening to bulldoze education's core values or an overly hyped bubble about to burst. "

Are MOOCs a "techno fad"?  Are they Inherently Inferior? These and other questions are presented in this article from the Educause Review Online. Check the Notes section that lists 29 references used for this article.

MOOC Manifesto | Conecta 13

MOOC Manifesto | Conecta 13 | Personal [e-]Learning Environments | Scoop.it

MOOCs are one of the hot topics in e-learning and Higher Education at the moment. The number of institutions designing their own MOOCs is growing exponentially and, thus, collective, academic reflection upon this new meme is required to guarantee we understand each other and we agree on some key issues concerning MOOCs

Peter B. Sloep's curator insight, April 2, 2013 11:13 AM

What follows - the manifest - is a list of 23 items which can best be seen as individual statements about what MOOCs are (or not) and what you can do with them (or cannot). It is not an (extensive) attempt to define MOOCs or a call for action on what we should do with MOOCs. Keeping that in mind, the list is useful as a summary of the many items that are raised in discussions on MOOCs (orginal in Spanish) (@pbsloep)

The rhetoric which surrounds MOOCs can distract us from the broader project of ‘unbundling’ the University in pursuit of profit

The rhetoric which surrounds MOOCs can distract us from the broader project of ‘unbundling’ the University in pursuit of profit | Personal [e-]Learning Environments | Scoop.it

Internet delivered higher education is described by some in revolutionary terms, providing access to education for poor people or remote populations. In practice, though, the ‘unbundling’ of activities is advocated in order better to subject them to marketisation. John Holmwood argues that consultants advocating for the ‘unbundling’ of universities care not about widening inequality or providing students with employment opportunities, but rather with exploiting the potentially profitable ventures that may arise in the future.

Peter B. Sloep's curator insight, March 24, 2013 4:30 AM

The article is in particular directed at an advice for 'unbundling the university' written by three Pearson consultants. A while ago, I addressed the similar issue of the monetisation of education in a blog of mine (http://pbsloep.blogspot.nl/2013/01/moocs-what-about-them-continued.html), referring to ideas by political philosopher Michael Sandel. John Holmwood's analysis reveals the nexus of interests that are served by privatising education. One could accuse Homes of an ad hominem, not addressing the issue but discrediting the messenger. Although he does discuss the authors' credentials and affiliations, such an accusation would not be fair as he also puts forth material arguments. But even more importantly, and for this you need to read the Pearson article itself, the argument pro unbundling advanced by the Pearson people are more like an advertorial than a serious scientific position paper. In such a case, it becomes interesting to find out where these arguments come from, that is, in virtue of whose interests, they are provided. The message that then comes to the fore is disconcerting at least. Or, as John Holmes puts it: "Thus is public higher education reduced to dining off the crumbs from high table! We might curtsy and doff our caps, but best, perhaps, just to bundle these charlatans off the scene and claim back higher education for democracy and public life." (@pbsloep)

MOOCs, Motivation, and the Mass Movement toward Open Education | Hans de Zwart | Personal [e-]Learning Environments | Scoop.it
Curtis Bonk led a session about MOOCs at Learning 2012. His slides are available at TrainingShare (this is the direct link). His presentation must have been one of the most insanely paced sessions ...

 

Comment: the blog post is more extensive. It starts off with the question what is a MOOC (and recommends the Curtis Bonk presentation), then it covers history, MOOC instructor guidelines, types of MOOCs,  and finally business guidelines. All four parts are enriched with online available materials, such as the Curtis Bonk talk.

Note, in relation to the adjoining scooop: Hans de Zwart also notices the value of student data and points out that MOOC platforms avoid the term student but in stead talk about participants. Talking students would have restricted their data use under FERPA, the (US) family educational rights and privacy act!  (peter sloep, @pbsloep)

Radical rethink: how to design university courses in the online age

Radical rethink: how to design university courses in the online age | Personal [e-]Learning Environments | Scoop.it

Un interesante artículo de Paul Wappett sobre EL FUTURO DE LA EDUCACIÓN, enfocado a cómo deben ser los cursos.
Modelos con conferencias on line del experto, de unos 10 minutos y que finalizan con una prueba corta.
Esto permitirá:
- asegurarse de qe los conceptos se van entendiendo
- personalizar el aprendizaje, el alumno accederá a aquello que necesite y podrá navegar libremente
- analíticas del aprendizaje
- atender diferentes estilos de aprender de diferentes alumnos
El reto será que los docentes investiguen y trabajen en diseñar contenidos de calidad.

Anne Whaits's curator insight, May 8, 2013 4:56 PM

A must read with some very interesting insights shared. Those that resonate with me most include:

"Independent Learning doesn't mean learning by yourself"

"Learning is a social process. ...MOOCs are not yet designed with that social aspect of learning in mind."

"It's a messy process and not easier than school necessarily."

"An employer who isn’t looking at candidates who don’t have degrees is going to  be leaving out some of the best people. The concept of having the ability to  learn on the job being essential is really important, and being an independent  learner is a de facto qualification for that."

Less than 4% of students in an MIT online course passed the final. Why investors in education are throwing their money away

Less than 4% of students in an MIT online course passed the final. Why investors in education are throwing their money away | Personal [e-]Learning Environments | Scoop.it
Everyone is trying to revolutionize education. And they’re spending billions of dollars to do it.

[...]  But entrepreneurs, investors, big companies, non-profits, government, and even schools are focused on the wrong issue: How to make education more accessible. That’s not the real problem anymore. So businesses with that goal might not turn out to be good investments either.

The problems with education today are relevance and, more importantly, effectiveness. The world has changed. You can blame technology, globalization, demographics, government debt, or whatever you want, but to succeed in the world of today and tomorrow, people need more knowledge, new skills, and broader capabilities than they needed yesterday. What they need is simple. It’s getting there that’s not.
