The pedagogical foundations of massive open online courses | David G. Glance, Martin Forsey & Miles Riley - First Monday

In 2011, the respective roles of higher education institutions and students worldwide were brought into question by the rise of the massive open online course (MOOC). MOOCs are defined by signature characteristics that include: lectures formatted as short videos combined with formative quizzes; automated assessment and/or peer and self–assessment and an online forum for peer support and discussion. Although not specifically designed to optimise learning, claims have been made that MOOCs are based on sound pedagogical foundations that are at the very least comparable with courses offered by universities in face–to–face mode. To validate this, we examined the literature for empirical evidence substantiating such claims. Although empirical evidence directly related to MOOCs was difficult to find, the evidence suggests that there is no reason to believe that MOOCs are any less effective a learning experience than their face–to–face counterparts. Indeed, in some aspects, they may actually improve learning outcomes.

Strategies for Teaching Large Classes | Office of the University Provost

If you're teaching a large class, how can you avoid being featured on the social media networks in this kind of video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ij91X-Mm1Ow? Large lecture classes have been around for a long time, recently evolving into large online sections.

Five myths about Moocs | Diana Laurillard

Five myths about Moocs | Diana Laurillard | Learning-Teaching- Ed Tech | Scoop.it

Diana Laurillard explains why a model based on unsupervised learning is not the answer. 

 "Free online courses that require no prior qualifications or fee are a wonderful idea but are not viable. …  Moocs are depicted as a disruptive technology because they involve no ongoing teaching expenses and cost the same to run no matter how many students enrol. But the idea that “content is free” in education is one of several myths that have helped to inflate the bubble of hype. … Another myth is that students can support each other. … Nor will Moocs solve the problem of expensive undergraduate education or educational scarcity in emerging economies. This is just a cruel myth. … [Finally], education is not a mass customer industry: it is a personal client industry."

Peter B. Sloep's curator insight, February 11, 2:09 PM

Although already a month old, this article  is still worth a scoop as it addresses a number of myths, as Diana Laurillard calls them, about MOOCs. Of course, this criticism is not to be taken as an outright dismissal of MOOCs. First of all, MOOCs come in different kinds and the criticisms apply in differing degrees to the different kinds. Second, if there is value in MOOCs, one cannot expect to get everything right in the first instance. So MOOCs should be allowed time and room to evolve. But why then the fuzz about them  in the first place, one might ask.  Because, as I have argued elsewhere too, they have been able to shake up academia as we know it. Since academia's cherished and customary way of teaching is under siege, or so it seems, it now feels a pressing need to make improvements. Nothing wrong with that, as long as you don’t think that the grass in the MOOC field is greener than everywhere else.
