Un artículo de Fernando Trujillo sobre MOOC publicado en el boletín SCOPEO.
Un enfoque excelente con dos caras:
Desde la necesidad - > más y mejor formación -> experiencias memorables -> la socialización del aprendizaje
Desde el deseo -> posibilidades de aprendizaje aún por explorar -> propiedad comunitaria
La clave no está en en ser muchos ("cuestionamiento de lo masivo") sino en proporcionar múltiples posibilidades de conexión, muchos nodos de conocimiento.
Ese es el futuro
Los MOOC representan para un buen número de educadores y educadoras o especialistas en educación mediada por la tecnología una oportunidad para probar algunos de los principios del conectivismo.
MOOCs (free online courses that are open to anyone) are more popular than Justin Bieber right now, but why aren't students finishing the courses they signed up for?
Llamativo que los altos porcentajes estén en cursos muy especializados; como el de alimentación equina.
I was one of the 36% of students who completed the Equine Nutrition course. I can tell you why I was able to... It was because there was excellent support from the lecturers, easy to access video lectures, no hard deadlines until the end of the course, meaning there was much more flexibility for people, like me, who work full time and can't always complete quizzes by 6pm each Monday for example. I could do it in my own time, as long as I stayed within the course duration and I found that some weeks I had much more time and could complete 2 weeks worth of readings & quizzes.
In contrast, I just attempted to complete an Animal Behaviour course, but unfortunately due to hard deadlines each Monday, I was unable to complete quizzes on time and therefore could not achieve the marks necessary to pass, so I gave up halfway through. I have still completed readings and watched lectures, but with no result as the quizzes did not count after the weekly hard deadlines. Obviously many people had the same issue as me, because out of 24950, only
1428 people completed the course.
I believe course designers need to revisit their courses and ensure they are flexible enough for full time workers to do in their own time.
An integral part of any online learning environment is the social synergy created via communication and discussion. This is where deep reflection and learning take place. Are students not feeling connected. Are they collaborating and creating something new with the knowledge they have gained and sharing it with others? Learning must me meaningful and applicable.
