A List Of 75 MOOCs For Teachers & Students ~ TeachThought

A List Of 75 MOOCs For Teachers & Students ~ TeachThought | Higher Ed Learning | Scoop.it

"Though some have criticized the real value of MOOCs, it is undeniable that these courses give students the capacity to learn at a level never before made available to them. It may not be perfect, nor at times pretty or easy, but it is a step forward towards the ultimate goal of providing a quality education to not only the lucky and privileged, but to all who seek to better themselves through learning.

 

"Below is a list of courses from various MOOC providers, separated by subject areas that are increasingly valuable in today’s society. Also included are courses that educators can use to improve their own teaching methods, skills, and facilitate a more effective learning environment in their classrooms."

Sloan-C View, Perspectives in Quality Online Education

Sloan-C View, Perspectives in Quality Online Education | Higher Ed Learning | Scoop.it
The FIPSE-funded Quality Matters (QM) project is creating an inter-institutional continuous improvement model for assuring the quality of online courses. To characterize quality, QM first turned to the research literature and national standards. QM teams identified 40 elements, distributed across eight broad standards, shown to positively impact student learning. These elements were then incorporated into a web-based rubric and weighted from 1 to 3, where 1 is important and 3 is essential.

by katie Lepi"Not too long ago, Pearson (the ginormous education company – yes it’s a technical term) put out a few really interesting videos about teachers who are shaking up online learning. They’re talking about innovation in online learning – and not the innovation that has driven new technologies. They’re talking about the type of innovation that changes how teachers teach, how learners learn, and how information is delivered and processed."
