Given how new MOOCs are, it’s impossible to say what their impact will be, but one thing higher ed administrators can do right now is to focus on their mission and ask if MOOCs are a tactic to help them achieve their strategic position.
In early 2013, we set out to find some LMS evaluation tools and checklists we could use to assess Open Course / MOOC platforms. We found several good ones (thank you to those who posted them publicly).
This report presents an evaluation of the Open Learning Design Studio MOOC (OLDS MOOC) that took place between January and March 2013. This evaluation focuses on the experience of those who registered, participated and actively contributed in the public course space. In particular the evaluation focuses on participant expectations, a detailed analysis of participation rates, use of the course space and technologies, and the effectiveness and challenges presented by collaborative group working. The evaluation also looks at how participants understood and used the series of nine badges on offer. Throughout, a broad evidence base of qualitative and quantitative information is used including data from pre- and post-course surveys, from page view and contributions data available in the public spaces and from hundreds of participant blog, discussion forum and social media posts.
The American Council on Education (ACE), the nation's leading higher education association and InsideTrack, an organization dedicated to improving outcomes in higher education, today announced that they have formed a research collaboration to study the strategic decision making of colleges and universities involved in massive open online courses (MOOCs). The project is designed to support institutional leaders considering the development of MOOCs in conducting a strategic evaluation of their options by arming them with insights gathered from current MOOC-delivering institutions.
