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.

Tony Bates: What’s right and what’s wrong about Coursera-style MOOCs

Tony Bates: What’s right and what’s wrong about Coursera-style MOOCs | Create, Innovate & Evaluate in Higher Education | Scoop.it

Daphne Koller, one of the two founders of Coursera, describes some of the key features of the Coursera MOOCs, and the lessons she has learned to date about teaching and learning from these courses. The video is well worth watching, just for this.

Dennis T OConnor's curator insight, January 10, 2013 12:44 PM

This quote from Tony Bates sets an interesting stage for Koller's Ted Talk on Coursera.


"However I’m probably going to suffer the same kind of fate of the Russian female punk band, Pussy Riot, by spitting on the altar of MOOCs, but this TED talk captures for me all that is both right and wrong about the MOOCs being promoted by the elite US universities. Let me start by saying that I actually applaud Daphne Koller and her colleagues for developing massive open online MOOCs. Any attempt to make the knowledge of some of the world’s leading experts available to anyone free of charge is an excellent endeavour. If only it stopped there. What I object to is the hubris and misleading claims that are evident in this TED video. As someone once said about one of Sigmund Freud’s lectures, what is new is not true, and what is true is not new. -

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.
