Far from bust: five ways MOOCs are helping people get on in life - World leading higher education information and services

Far from bust: five ways MOOCs are helping people get on in life - World leading higher education information and services | EDUCONNECT | Scoop.it
Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) – free, short courses made available to everybody online – were expected to herald the end of higher education as we knew it when they began. But the hype soon died away and critics bemoaned the fact that learners quickly lost enthusiasm and dropped out in large numbers. After promising …

Donald Clark Plan B: 10 reasons why Salman Khan is a more important educational theorist & practitioner than Ken Robinson or Sugata Mitra

Donald Clark Plan B: 10 reasons why Salman Khan is a more important educational theorist & practitioner than Ken Robinson or Sugata Mitra | EDUCONNECT | Scoop.it
Ida Brandão's insight:

O título tem pouco a ver com o conteúdo do artigo. A argumentação sobre o reconhecimento do contributo da Khan Academy para maior acesso e reforço da Educação é pertinente, tal como a evolução da Khan Academy que se expandiu a outras áreas disciplinares para além da matemática. Ken Robinson e Sugata Mitra têm tido um papel diferente e parece-me desnessessária uma comparação em título que é omissa no corpo do artigo.

We took a tour of the abandoned college campuses of Second Life | EDUCONNECT | Scoop.it
A lot of colleges bought the Second Life hype and set up their own private islands.
Ida Brandão's insight:

Os ambientes de Second Life nunca me atrairam particularmente, tal como os video jogos, mas dado o sucesso dos videojogos, seria expectável que estes ambientes pudessem ter outro nível de adesão, mas segundo este artigo parece que estão desertos e têm custos elevados de alojamento.

The corridor of uncertainty: MOOCs for development

The corridor of uncertainty: MOOCs for development | EDUCONNECT | Scoop.it
Ida Brandão's insight:

Um artigo sobre o custo dos MOOCs, promovidos pelas grandes universidades, e uma nova plataforma para MOOCs dirigida aos países em desenvolvimento, promovida pela Commonwealth for Learning (CoL).

MOOCs for Development - http://acreelman.blogspot.pt/2015/08/moocs-for-development.html

As discussões que se têm feito à volta dos custos dos MOOCs parecem-me falaciosas, pois muitos dos cursos oferecidos já fazem parte da oferta das IES e as plataformas usadas são rentabilizadas com inúmeros cursos e milhares de participantes. E tem havido oferta de MOOCs, através de ferramentas livres e redes sociais alternativas, que não passam pela utilização de plataformas.

Os MOOCs acabam por ter um papel muito mais importante de marketing das instituições do que qualquer outra publicidade paga (e que não é barata). Não se pretendendo minimizar o esforço de preparação prévia dum curso online que pode envolver uma equipa alargada de professores, nem substimar o acompanhamento dum curso que pode envolver milhares de participantes, julgo que as IES só têm a ganhar com a visibilidade que estes cursos lhes proporcionam, com muitos participantes que também beneficiam da sua qualidade.

O facto de muitos cursos oferecerem uma certificação a baixo custo, acaba por reduzir os custos envolvidos, pois mesmo uma pequena percentagem de participantes que a requeiram será sempre um número elevado face ao número de participantes inscritos.

Quanto ao aparecimento de mais uma plataforma de e-learning - http://mookit.co/ - parece-me secundária face a muitas plataformas gratuitas e open source já existentes.

Um participante num país menos desenvolvido, com acessos lentos à Internet ou quebras de comunicações, terá sempre problemas qualquer que seja a plataforma. Portanto, a solução será a disponibilização de recursos em múltiplos formatos para obviar à exigência que os recursos multimédia fazem do sistema informático e das comunicações.
