The field of massive-open-online-course providers is becoming crowded. That’s even more so at Stanford University, where Udacity and Coursera, two of the largest providers, got their start.

 

Now there’s a new platform to add to the list. NovoEd, which officially opened on Monday, will begin offering seven courses to the public next week, as well as 10 private courses for Stanford students.

Amin Saberi, a Stanford professor and the start-up company’s founder and chief executive, said there’s a key difference between NovoEd and existing MOOC options: peer interaction.

 

“With this transition from brick-and-mortar classes to online learning, you shouldn’t lose the social, collaborative aspects of learning,” Mr. Saberi said. “It should be able to enable it.”

 

NovoEd was created by Mr. Saberi and a Ph.D. student, Farnaz Ronaghi, for use in an entrepreneurship course in March 2012. More than 80,000 students in 150 countries participated in the course by using the platform, working in teams on projects and business models.

 

“We had students from Silicon Valley to Russia to third-world countries in Africa,” Mr. Saberi said.

 

Some MOOCs have struggled to foster teamwork because of their size. In February a course at the Georgia Institute of Technology was suspended due to technical difficulties after the instructor attempted to use Google Docs to help the course’s 40,000 enrolled students to organize themselves into groups.

 

NovoEd is designed specifically with teamwork in mind, Mr. Saberi said. Students form groups at the beginning of each course, conduct class discussions by messaging one another or in discussion boards under an assignment, and evaluate their peers’ performance, much like team projects in face-to-face lecture courses.

 

NovoEd’s offerings for the public currently include courses on finance, product management, and mobile health.

 

One offering, “A Crash Course in Creativity,” explores how to increase your own creativity among teams and organizations. One assignment asks the teams to “look at bread in a new way” and to create presentations and video exploring the value of a loaf of bread. The videos are then viewable, and can be commented on, by everyone else in the course.

 

“It’s important to think about that learning is not just the mastery of skill sets or content,” Mr. Saberi said. “We want all the students to become critical thinkers. We want them to be better team leaders, better team players, and these are things you attain by working in teams and learning from your peers.”

And a non-western vision on the interactive possiblities of MOOCs

PaigeCuffe's curator insight, April 26, 2013 3:22 AM

This draft paper offers some evidence of the style of some interactions on some types of MOOCs.  Regrettably, it offers them as though representing all interactions and all types of MOOCs and does not recognise the differences in pedagogy/heutagogy of the widely varying courses now available.  Indeed, it does not describe the original cMOOCs though it does draw on a lot of the literature which has arisen from and around cMOOCs and applies this without qualification to xMOOCs. 

Within those constraints, however, is there something here to consider about the style of interaction of participants on these xMOOCs and also the potential role of xMOOCs in other societies?

My MOOC Tech Ecosystem | Martin Weller - The Ed Techie | Initiate! What is learning design? | Scoop.it

On my open course H817Open I use a mixture of technology, and thought it might be useful to describe these here, and also to indicate what I'd like to do beyond this. …

 

What I would like is an open course DIY toolkit. You come along, select which functions you want and it recommends a bunch of open technologies (although not necessarily open source) with examples of where they've been used, and hey presto, you roll your own MOOC.

Peter B. Sloep's curator insight, April 10, 2013 2:14 AM

Such a toolkit would indeed be very useful, not necessarily for MOOCs only, but more for networked learning in general. The tools that Martin discusses - e.g.  Wordpress for blog aggregation, Twitter, Google Plus - certainly suggest a wider applicability. 

 

From my point of view, the interesting thing about such toolkits is that they support a view of learning that embraces the idea of personal learning networks (PLNs), yet allows one to organise learning in courses. The course sets the topic, time period as well as interaction and communication structures, the tools used to make the course happen are a selection of the tools that people already use anyway to sustain their PLNs. To the extent that students do not use any such tools already or a limited subset of them only, the course also introduces them to their use and in doing so helps them to start building their own PLNs. This kind of course set-up amounts to a view of education that not only seeks to enlighten students on the course topic, but also prepares them for a career as a lifelong learner (or helps them sustain that career). It amounts to a shift from an institution-centric view to a genuinely student-centric one. This is good news for students, now we only need to convince educational institutions that it is also good news for them.

The pedagogical foundations of massive open online courses | David G. Glance, Martin Forsey & Miles Riley - First Monday

In 2011, the respective roles of higher education institutions and students worldwide were brought into question by the rise of the massive open online course (MOOC). MOOCs are defined by signature characteristics that include: lectures formatted as short videos combined with formative quizzes; automated assessment and/or peer and self–assessment and an online forum for peer support and discussion. Although not specifically designed to optimise learning, claims have been made that MOOCs are based on sound pedagogical foundations that are at the very least comparable with courses offered by universities in face–to–face mode. To validate this, we examined the literature for empirical evidence substantiating such claims. Although empirical evidence directly related to MOOCs was difficult to find, the evidence suggests that there is no reason to believe that MOOCs are any less effective a learning experience than their face–to–face counterparts. Indeed, in some aspects, they may actually improve learning outcomes.

A New Pedagogy is Emerging...And Online Learning is a Key Contributing Factor | Contact North | Initiate! What is learning design? | Scoop.it

In all the discussion about learning management systems, open educational resources (OERs), massive open online courses (MOOCs), and the benefits and challenges of online learning, perhaps the most important issues concern how technology is changing the way we teach, and - more importantly - the way students learn. For want of a better term, we call this “pedagogy.”

What is clear is that major changes in the way we teach post-secondary students are being triggered by online learning and the new technologies that increase flexibility in, and access to, post-secondary education.
