Excellent thoughts by this author. Traditional educational models are dinosaurs and if administrators do not get with technology and update curriculum to reflect online offerings they will be out of business within a decade.

Instructional quality of Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) | Anoush Margaryan, Manuela Bianco, Allison Littlejohn - Computers & Education

Abstract: We present an analysis of instructional design quality of 76 randomly selected Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs). The quality of MOOCs was determined from first principles of instruction, using a course survey instrument. Two types of MOOCs (xMOOCs and cMOOCs) were analysed and their instructional design quality was assessed and compared. We found that the majority of MOOCs scored poorly on most instructional design principles. However, most MOOCs scored highly on organisation and presentation of course material. The results indicate that although most MOOCs are well-packaged, their instructional design quality is low. We outline implications for practice and ideas for future research.

ғelιх c ѕeyғarтн's curator insight, November 19, 2014 8:37 AM
More of this kind of research is needed, although this article seems to follow the prevalent kind of thinking that groups different kind of learning activities which have chosen the #MOOC format into one genre, as if there was a genuine type. This does not appear to hold up to scrutiny. The finding that these MOOC formatted courses do not largely comply with the "instructional design principles" of e-learning but do excel in "organisation and presentation" instead, once combined with the fact that millions of learners flock to these very MOOC but could care less about conventional e-learning formats, leads one to reflect on the usefulness of said principles as analytical/evaluation tools and their scope as indicators of learning outcomes.

5 Killer eLearning Tips To Help You Dominate Content Chunking

5 Killer eLearning Tips To Help You Dominate Content Chunking | Learning@the_speed_of_change | Scoop.it

"Reading content on the Internet has changed the way people process information, and nowhere is this change more obvious than in fields where design must adapt to new technology such as in eLearning. eLearning course creators need to refine their content to suit learners’ behavior and accessibility to training. This is where chunking comes into play."

Beth Dichter's curator insight, September 1, 2014 5:56 PM

If you design a course, face2face or online, it is important to keep up with information on how people learn, and today we know that chunking information is critical. This post begins by describing what a chunk is and why they are important in learning. It them moves on to the five tips (quoted below):

1. Set a chunking limit

2. Chunk with coherance

3. Use the right formatting

4. Keep chunks short

5. Use the inverted pyramid method for for prioritization

Each of these is described in detail and many addional resources are included in the post. You will also find a SlideShare on the Basics of Content Chunking. If this concept is new to you it will provide additional information. However be aware that the number of items that can be held in short term memory varies, and the rule they use is not accurate for all people. A recent course I took on Coursera, Learning How To Learn, suggested that the number of items most people can keep in short term memory is four.
