La pregunta de los MOOC | edu & tec

La pregunta de los MOOC | edu & tec | Create, Innovate & Evaluate in Higher Education | Scoop.it

Reflexion sobre los MOOC del formidable Jordi Adell. 

Jornadas JUTE 2014 - 15 y 16 de mayo en Toledo

Alfredo Corell's insight:

El otro día leí no se dónde [véase Addenda 1] que, si los MOOC son la repuesta, ¿cuál es la pregunta? Supongo que dependerá mucho que quién se hace dicha pregunta. Yo tengo la mía, naturalmente. Pero es un poco larga. De hecho, me costó casi dos horas explicarla en las JUTE 2014 (Jornadas Universitarias de Tecnología Educativa) celebradas en Toledo el 15 y 16 de mayo. Aquí está la presentación que utilicé, por si le sirve a alguien.

The MOOC of One - One of the MOOC concept designer thoughts

The MOOC of One - One of the MOOC concept designer thoughts | Create, Innovate & Evaluate in Higher Education | Scoop.it
I want to talk about the MOOC of one. What I mean by that is I want to talk about the development of the MOOC or the Massive Open Online Course. I'm one of the people who designed the concept originally in 2008.
Alfredo Corell's insight:

"Even the MOOCs, the Massive Open Online Courses, that have followed the MOOCs that were developed by George Siemens and myself, the courses offered by Khan Academy, Coursera, Udacity, Udemy, and the rest are all based on the idea of some body of content.

Is being one being the same? That's kind of a hard question. It's not even clear what I mean when I ask that. Let's take doctors. Does being a doctor mean having exactly the same knowledge as every other doctor? No."

Open Education | Open Education Europa | Create, Innovate & Evaluate in Higher Education | Scoop.it
Alfredo Corell's insight:


The aim of this scoreboard is to highlight the huge potential that European institutions have in the world of MOOCs and to help visualize this potential by compiling the existing European-provided MOOCs and open courses available on different open websites. 

 

European MOOCs are those provided by European institutions, regardless of the platform that hosts them. Each and every MOOC provider was contacted individually to get the most comprehensive and up-to-date information available. Many of the MOOCs accounted for in the scoreboard are also listed in the MOOCs aggregator on this website. Efforts are underway to make the aggregator even more comprehensive and include every MOOC from the scoreboard.

 

The world of MOOCs is dynamic and growing, and Open Education Europa aims to be the leading online resource for open education innovation. Anyone with additional sources or updates is welcome to contribute to the MOOC scoreboard by contacting us.

taking courses that have been tested by years of experience and that have been reviewed as part of regular accreditation

Students who complete an Open Educational Resources University course will be able to pay a fee to have their work assessed for academic credit, which would then be recognised by all the universities participating in the OERu.

Among the questions that the Conference will address are: What are the obstacles that prevent access and use among disadvantaged populations at the ‘bottom of the pyramid’, especially in developing countries? What issues need to be articulated, and what resources outside of MOOCs may be needed to enable access to education for all? Simply put: How can MOOCs be harnessed as a tool for development?

MOOC Fad is Over: Long live Synchronous Online Learning | Create, Innovate & Evaluate in Higher Education | Scoop.it
Like with so many fads, MOOC's are coming under intense scrutiny. New research by MOOC Research and funded by the Gates Foundation shows mooc fad is over. (New post: The Fad of MOOC's is over: Synchronous online learning comes forward.
Alfredo Corell's insight:

Is this the begining of the end?

Is this the end of the trend?

Some universities are planning their future MOOCs while others consider them as a past and useless tool?

 

On the other hand, the title of this assay could be misleading: what about the good quality offered asynchronous online learning courses? why the reflexion is that after MOOC online education should be only "synchronous"???? On my opinion, one of the most powerful characteristics of online education is the point of 

asynchronicity.

And since I'm writing a title for the same book series on massive open online courses, I've been trying to similarly define MOOC in a way that would clarify what should be covered by that term and what shouldn't.
Alfredo Corell's insight:

"So if all of our empirical attempts to define a MOOC are ending up in contradiction or absurdity, perhaps we should embrace a definition that puts purposeful educational research and experimentation at the heart of the MOOC project and then take a look at who gets to be (or stay) in the club and who has not yet paid the entrance fee." by Jonathan Haber
