MOOCs in 2013: Breaking Down the Numbers

MOOCs in 2013: Breaking Down the Numbers | Create, Innovate & Evaluate in Higher Education | Scoop.it
In November 2011 I was taking one of the first MOOCs from Stanford. At that time, many new MOOCs were being announced and I started Class Central as a way to keep track of them and figure out what I should take next.
Alfredo Corell's insight:

The number of courses offered has grown from about 100 MOOCs in 2012 to almost 700 starting in 2013, with an average of nearly two new MOOCs starting every day. More than 1200 courses have been announced so far.

Course-Management Companies Challenge MOOC Providers - Wired Campus - The Chronicle of Higher Education | Create, Innovate & Evaluate in Higher Education | Scoop.it

Two software companies that sell course-management systems, Blackboard and Instructure, have entered the race to provide free online courses for the masses.

On Thursday both companies plan to announce partnerships with universities that will use their software to teach massive open online courses, or MOOC’s. The companies hope to pull in their own college clients to compete with online-education players like Udacity and Coursera.

MITx and the classroom of tomorrow - The Tech

MITx and the classroom of tomorrow - The Tech | Create, Innovate & Evaluate in Higher Education | Scoop.it

In recent weeks, there has been much energy and enthusiasm about both MITx and its multi-institutional counter part edX. Listening to the debate over how MITx can be integrated into the residential experience, I am impressed by how much thought all affected parties have invested. We as a community are at a crossroads. We have been presented with an opportunity to substantially change what it means to receive a college education. This possibility excites me, but for others it may seem slightly frightening. Many people are concerned about what we may lose in the process of integrating online education into our current system. While these concerns are certainly valid, I am still optimistic. Rather than focus on how MITx might harm, I focus on how it can transform. What follows is my vision of how this transformation might play out.

La UNED lanza una plataforma ‘online’ con la colaboración del MIT: UnX versión hispana de EdX

La UNED lanza una plataforma ‘online’ con la colaboración del MIT: UnX versión hispana de EdX | Create, Innovate & Evaluate in Higher Education | Scoop.it

Inventar aplicaciones para teléfonos móviles está casi al alcance de cualquiera. Google lanzó a finales de 2010 una plataforma para crearlas dentro de su sistema operativo, Android. Aquel programa, ‘App Inventor’, forma parte del curriculum del Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) y se convertirá en unas semanas en el primer curso gratuito que ofrece la Universidad Nacional de Educación a Distancia (UNED) a través de internet. El lanzamiento, fruto de varios meses de colaboración entre las dos instituciones, supone la creación de UnX, la nueva plataforma de cursos online de la universidad española, y permitirá al MIT dar el salto a la oferta de contenidos para España y América Latina.
