Good to have a peek inside what's going on, eh?  Ready to take the plunge?

Daniel Tan's curator insight, July 4, 2014 9:42 PM

The greatest contribution of  MOOCs to education will not be the  demographic  and geograhic reach it claims to provide, but the disruption it creates on the limitations and previous beliefs of the instructivist pedagogy model. Data and learning analytics will document how the student, and more specifically,  how the brain learns.  The truism that "(s)he who speaks the most learn the most" will be based on data Collected and analyzed.  For now, we content that in teaching a class, that teacher has  learned the most. :)

Wouldn’t it be great if cMOOcs could be made more ‘productive’ – instead of advancing many people’s knowledge a little by re-creating the same (or similar) new knowledge again and again, can MOOCs be structured to stimulate the creation of new knowledge in a more coordinated way. Can you bring the learners together to produce something entirely novel as they learn? This is in the true spirit of connectivism.

Patricia Daniels's curator insight, April 8, 2013 2:40 AM

H817 students, this blog and Sloep's response are worth thinking about. It's something we can directly relate to within our own MOOC. Are you satisfied with the learning effect and production of knowledge? Are blogs and forum postings mainly reiterations or are novel ideas coming to the fore and being developed in further discussions?

Patricia Daniels's comment, April 8, 2013 2:41 AM
Thank you for this interesting response.

R Hollingsworth's curator insight, January 30, 2013 9:45 AM

Sad to see the authors have only one perspective on who does the designing (and why) for MOOCs ... they make it sound like a conspiracy plot rather than the hugely diverse and multifaceted movement it truly is. The authors start with a premise in mind then use the passive voice in a key introductory statement: "MOOCs are designed to impose, not improved learning, but a new business model on higher education, which opens the door for wide-scale profiteering." This leaves us the readers imagining that there is some higher power manipulating the strings behind each and every MOOC offering.  Thus, the group of community college profs (for whom I have an undying admiration and affiliation having spent more than a decade teaching in a community college) imagine they need to jump in front of a "...  vaunted train of progress that many of us see as nothing more than a repackaged Taylorism for academia."  Wow, as if community college curriculum - crafted almost completely by state legislators determined to "smooth the transition" from high school and create a 13th and 14th grade - is not already there without MOOCs?  This is too simplistic for me to believe they really mean it...

Course topic is the biggest motivating factor for participants in massive open online courses and quality of the learning experience is the main reason they complete the courses or quit early, according to a new survey performed by Qualtrics.

 

Other key findings of the survey include:
