Experiences from Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) and how the MOOC could potentially increase diversity, social inclusion & learner engagement

Experiences from Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) and how the MOOC could potentially increase diversity, social inclusion & learner engagement | Learning with MOOCs | Scoop.it

Background There is currently much interest and excitement at the emergence of an educational approach commonly termed the ‘Massive Open Online Course’ or MOOC. MOOCs as they exist at the moment might not be around for very long. However, they are causing existing higher education providers to consider their business models, and for governments to consider education policy generally.

“Stanford in Pakistan”

“Stanford in Pakistan” | Learning with MOOCs | Scoop.it
At present the PM Youth Skills Development Program is being handled by the National Vocational & Technical Training Commission of Pakistan (NAVTTC). Youth who apply, and are accepted into the skills development program, are placed in NAVTTC institutes around Pakistan. PM Youth Program pays 30,000 – 35,000 PKR per every 6 month course to NAVTTC for every student enrolled through the Skills Development Program. This is great and many of the students learn and benefit greatly from taking coursework from local technical institutes. Wouldn’t it be great if the Skills Development Program also provide the same tuition reimbursement for students to take certificates from Institutions like Stanford and Wharton? The costs would remain the same as for local courses but students across Pakistan can benefit from learning technology and engineering skills as well as earning a prestigious certificate from some of the best educational institutes around the world.

Guest Commentary: Online Education

Guest Commentary: Online Education | Learning with MOOCs | Scoop.it

There is, however, a serious problem currently keeping online education from reaching its full potential -- low retention rates. About 90 percent of enrollees in “MOOCS” -- short for “Massive Open Online Courses,” which have unlimited registration and are the most popular online education product -- drop out within two weeks. 


The key to solving this problem? Making MOOCs more interactive. While MOOCs can never perfectly replicate the in-person back-and-forth of traditional brick-and-mortar schools, they can capitalize on modern technologies that empower students to more intimately engage with the material, their instructors, and their peers.
