Are MOOCs hyped?

Are MOOCs hyped? | Innovación docente universidad | Scoop.it

If you haven’t heard of MOOCs, you no doubt will, because these Massive Open Online course are becoming all the rage, tagged as the biggest thing in public education since, well, the dawn of public education. (It wasn’t long ago that the Khan Academy was). My colleague Nick Anderson reported about the emergence of the MOOCs movement as a disruptive force in higher education. But there are reasons to think MOOCs are being hyped, and below, former schools superintendent Larry Cuban explains why. Cuban is a former high school social studies teacher (14 years, including seven at Cardozo and Roosevelt high schools in the District), district superintendent (seven years in Arlington, VA) and professor emeritus of education at Stanford University, where he has taught for more than 20 years. His latest book is “As Good As It Gets: What School Reform Brought to Austin.” This appeared on his blog.

Se acercan tiempos complicados, tal vez difíciles o puede que retadores, para la universidad española. El comité de expertos nombrado por el Ministerio de Educación está trabajando en nuevas propuestas de organización para la Universidad española.

Special Issue on Social Media in Higher Education - The Internet and Higher Education

Special Issue on Social Media in Higher Education - The Internet and Higher Education | Innovación docente universidad | Scoop.it

Social media is a trendy topic at the moment, having received much mass media and consumer attention for its widespread adoption during the last decade. Social media has influenced practice in many communication-oriented fields, such as marketing, customer service, and journalism. In education, the hype surrounding social media has created a lot of speculation about how it might be used in a higher education environment. Perspectives range from believing higher education should capitalize on technologies and perhaps electronic devices that students are already using for personal reasons to struggling to see how to effectively integrate a technology whose naturalistic use has been so heavily informal and user-driven into a setting known for its more formal and structured experiences.
