MOOCs: Where are the Librarians? | HASTAC

MOOCs: Where are the Librarians? | HASTAC | Learning & Technology | Scoop.it

On August 3rd, I participated in a Twitter discussion with Hybrid Pedagogy and David Stavens of Udacity. I posed a question that seemed to create a bit of a stir. “Has anyone thought of embedding librarians into MOOCs?” Mr. Stavens replied that all of Udacity’s classes had a professional teaching team supporting them. I asked if a librarian was working with the instructor as a collaborator in teaching the class. I asked if classes had access to scholarly databases for research. The lack of a direct affirmation leads me to assume the answer is no. I find it hard to believe that in all of the MOOC furor no one is considering a crucial part of education: the research component, the librarian component.
