I love infographics like this that depict the 10,000 foot view to show the overall subject, the various theories or parts, and how the pieces fit together and influence one another.

MOOC as Courseware: Coursera's Big Announcement in Context

MOOC as Courseware: Coursera's Big Announcement in Context | Learning Design & eLearning Quality in HE | Scoop.it

One key aspect of this announcement is Coursera’s full-fledged move into courseware as a new business line to complement their standalone courses. Courseware is the combination of “the curriculum, the course materials, the assessments and, in some cases, the analytics to track student progress and make study suggestions”.

More thoughts on Courera's move into the LMS & Courseware market

Peter B. Sloep's curator insight, June 5, 2013 4:49 AM

Although posted already a week ago, this is too important a scoop to miss. According to Phil Hill, Coursera's moving into the courseware business is a reflection of a number of different things. First, according to Coursera's Daphne Koller it is prompted by their desire to cater more for HE students' initial education than for professionals who seek to develop themselves. But speculates Phil Hill, another dominant reason could be the desire of the venture capitalists to find a revenue model. Courseware is like books, it allows universities to use them and turn them into genuine course by putting a wrapper around them, i.e. by assigning teachers to them, fitting them into a curriculum, giving credits for them. 

 

Courseware as a notion is at least 20 years old (see my previous Scoop http://sco.lt/4k2TeD). In that sense, Coursera's move is a step back. It brings MOOCs back into the fold of HE as we know it; the claim that MOOCs are a disrupting innovation that makes obsolete almost all universities but a few elite ones (as suggested by among others Sebastian Thrun) immediately falls flat. To me, this is a very welcome move, one that removes the hype and gives us back a sense of proportion, enough to let educational professionals (rather than news papers and Silicon Valley gurus) decide on how MOOCs are going to be useful to improve education across the globe.

It looks like Coursera has come up with a business model that supports offering courses simultaneously to more than one university at a time across state lines.
Could another company like Blackboard have offered a similar service at attractive rates? Looks like the universities didn't shop around.

Very useful for having one place to find critiques of the "connectivist" learning model.

The Most Important Education Technology in 200 Years

The Most Important Education Technology in 200 Years | Learning Design & eLearning Quality in HE | Scoop.it

Technology will define where online education goes next. All those millions of students clicking online can have their progress tracked, logged, studied, and probably influenced, too. Talk to Khan or anyone behind the MOOCs (which largely sprang from university departments interested in computer intelligence) and they’ll all say their eventual goal isn’t to stream videos but to perfect education through the scientific use of data. Just imagine, they say, software that maps an individual’s knowledge and offers a lesson plan unique to him or her.

What is the appeal of MOOCs to the 'learner'? Many appear to think it is the 'free' aspect. But is it? Is it, instead, the chance to learn, to discuss with like minds, or to just connect with others?
