Move over MOOCs – Collaborative MOOC 2.0 is coming

Move over MOOCs – Collaborative MOOC 2.0 is coming | Create, Innovate & Evaluate in Higher Education | Scoop.it

Massive open online courses – MOOCs – offered by top universities have expanded worldwide over the last three years, gaining students globally for courses designed in the United States and elsewhere and disseminated globally on platforms like Coursera, edX and the British-based FutureLearn.

Alfredo Corell's insight:

Many conventional MOOCs are developed and designed for Western teaching and learning experiences, says Auh, the lead project designer for MOOC 2.0. “But the general consensus here [among those working on MOOC 2.0] is that MOOCs education must be a collective effort from all parts of the world.” 

What is important, according to Auh, is that to avoid a “type of neo-colonialism”, receiving countries must collaborate in devising the MOOCs their students will study. 

“The stance of MOOC 2.0 is higher education should find ways to address the needs of those at the bottom of the pyramid while being sensitive to their culture,” Auh told University World News.

Miguel Zapata-Ros's curator insight, August 14, 2014 2:13 PM

Con esto no estamos diciendo que estos procesos sean inevitables. Según la teoría de Christensen (2012 y 2013) hay un núcleo extensible (la parte del sistema que no aumenta el costo con la extensión) y la parte no extensible, en la que el coste es función de la extensión (ahí es donde reside el valor propio del servicio o del negocio). En este trabajo hacemos énfasis en que se trata de determinar y de cuidar la parte de nuestro sistema que no es extensible, la que constituye el valor genuino. Y concluiremos afirmando que las instituciones tendrán que responder a esta supuesta democratización de la educación con una apuesta mayor. Eso significa incorporar eficiente y rigurosamente teorías pedagógicas que han estado probadas en otros entornos pero que deben desarrollarse y tienen mucho que decir, aunque sea distinto, en estos ámbitos.

4 Lessons We Can Learn from the "Failure" of MOOCs

4 Lessons We Can Learn from the "Failure" of MOOCs | Create, Innovate & Evaluate in Higher Education | Scoop.it
Recently NPR did a story that had the general title The Online Education Revolution Drifts Off Course. And yet the article was focused solely on MOOCs (massive open online courses).
Alfredo Corell's insight:

A pessimistic view of the MOOC era.

Some analysts nowadays think that MOOC revolution is over.

MOOC Fad is Over: Long live Synchronous Online Learning

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.

Trends 2015: the changing context of European higher education

Trends 2015: the changing context of European higher education | Create, Innovate & Evaluate in Higher Education | Scoop.it

In most EHEA countries, universities are coping with the consequences of the economic crisis, which in some places is paired with negative demographic trends and migration. The report identifies a number of steps taken by universities to respond to this context as well as to other European and international trends.

Alfredo Corell's insight:

EUA has launched the Trends 2015 report, which presents the universities’ perceptions of the changes that have taken place in European higher education over the past five years, particularly in relation to learning and teaching. Based on survey responses of 451 higher education institutions from 46 countries (48 higher education systems), the report outlines the changing context in which higher education institutions operate.

Why MOOCs are Failing the People They're Supposed to Help

Why MOOCs are Failing the People They're Supposed to Help | Create, Innovate & Evaluate in Higher Education | Scoop.it
MOOCs and online education are a technology with potentially revolutionary implications—but without a precise plan for realizing that potential.
Alfredo Corell's insight:

In 2012, Stanford president John Hennessy pronounced that the MOOC was going to be “transformative to education.” But, he added, “We don’t really understand how yet.” Two years later, the landscape remains much the same:MOOCs are a technology with potentially revolutionary implications for education, but without a precise plan for realizing that potential. One way of getting there could be for the leaders of the MOOC movement to look more closely at old methods, from when education was less massive, less open, and entirely offline.

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
