Right now, in Rwanda, a nonprofit called Generation Rwanda is getting started on an ambitious experiment that is likely among the first of its kind: an entirely MOOC-based university.


Though it is only entering pilot stages later this year, its eventual goal is to create a 400-person university in Rwanda, with MOOCs providing the lessons and teaching fellows guiding students through discussions and problematic areas. To start, the first students will try out a Harvard University course onJustice, and a University of Edinburgh course on Critical Thinking and Global Challenges, says executive director Jamie Hodari. Already, the program has struck a partnership with Southern New Hampshire University to test and certify associates degrees as its startup university gets off the ground, he says.


Hodari believes that as MOOC providers get better at mining their student data to see how an individual is stumbling, the less expert his TA facilitators will need to be in a particular topic, which will help to save costs. The nonprofit’s ambition is to offer full-year tuition for about $1,500 a year or less.

Are you ready to MOOC? A conversation with George Siemens

Are you ready to MOOC? A conversation with George Siemens | IG Powerment | Scoop.it

18:29 – A lot of the burden is on the learner. Are learners ready? (See also Preparing Adults for Lifelong Learning.) How well prepared is the average adult to filter the massive flow of information?

 

19:30 – Human beings are naturally “meaning makers.” George cites Pirolli on information foraging. We categorize, we connect.  That’s not new. But now the flow of information is at a pace that we can’t cognitively handle anymore – and probably haven’t been able to for a century or more. Past methods simply don’t work.

I have receb

ntly taken part in a CLD miniMooc, hosted by Aberdeen University. I am very excited by the potential of this learning tool, especially as I work in a widely-scattered geographic area (the Highlands of Scotland). I believe the developer (Ramone Bisawi) was going to send me a 'how to set up a Mooc' factsheet, as I have colleagues in tourism and equalities who are interested. keep up the good work!
