Stanford’s Venture Lab MOOC Platform Goes Private, Relaunches as NovoEd | Matt Enis - Library Journal

Stanford’s Venture Lab MOOC Platform Goes Private, Relaunches as NovoEd | Matt Enis - Library Journal | Innovations in e-Learning | Scoop.it

Stanford has become a hotbed of activity in the MOOC field, with NovoEd now the third MOOC platform to emerge from the university during the past two years following Udacity and Coursera. According to Stanford professor and NovoEd founder Amin Saberi, this latest platform is unique in the way it facilitates and emphasizes interaction between students, encouraging the formation of groups and collaboration on projects. Students also rate the work and participation of others within their groups, creating a system of accountability to one’s peers.

I can't help wondering how this compares to other efforts. For example, @openstudy who run social structures and support around opencourseware such as some of MIT's OCW. As a clear example I'm still struck by how the Mechanical MOOC ( @MOOC_E ) pulled together 3 or 4 services (including openstudy) to provide a framework around OCW. I'm not sugesting their approach would work for every discipline but I'm a little surprised at the fanfare NovoEd has got in the press.

seems as if, in our particular slice of time, many spheres of industry are coming to a breaking point; Will we be focused on marginal costs and continue doing things the old way, or chuck existing systems and focus on the new?

Coursera Throws a 'Massive Open Cookout' - Technology - The Chronicle of Higher Education | Innovations in e-Learning | Scoop.it

By Jeffrey R. YoungMenlo Park, Calif.

Call it a "massive open cookout." Coursera, a company that is working with more than a dozen elite universities to help them run MOOC's, or massive open online courses, held its first official "meetup" here on Saturday for students and professors to connect in person over burgers, chips, and soda.

It was a chance for even the company itself to learn more about what motivates students to take its courses, which bear no official academic credit.....
