During this session hosted by Pauline Green and David Robertshaw from the University of Derby, we will cover all aspects of developing, designing, researching, quality assuring and running massive open online courses, which have been a phenomenon since 2008 and are arguably transforming the 21st century learning landscape. During a series of workshops, you will work with experts in various fields from big data and MOOC development to innovation and research in MOOCs. This workshop will encourage you to develop your own strategy for developing MOOCs, and equip you with the skills to design and deliver a MOOC on a topic of your choice.

Task based MOOC design: challenges and opportunities | Emma Project

Task based MOOC design: challenges and opportunities | Emma Project | Linguagem Virtual | Scoop.it
MOOCs tend to follow an instructivist approach where learners are mostly expected to acquire knowledge presented by the teacher in a rather passive learning mode. Such design neglects the principles of active and engaging learning (c.f., Margaryan, Bianco, & Littlejohn, 2014). Task-centred instructional design models offer meaningful tasks and learning experiences that follow active learning principles. Up till now, implementations of task-centred MOOC designs are, however, scarce.

Millennials Speak Out: We Don’t Need Classrooms to Learn

Millennials Speak Out: We Don’t Need Classrooms to Learn | Linguagem Virtual | Scoop.it
Many college kids think education should become more virtual and driven by social media.

 

Professor John Covach teaches a MOOC at the University of Rochester. He told TakePart that MOOCs "should be a central part of any institution of higher learning—not just to produce students who will get jobs, but to foster the pursuit of knowledge in general."

Learning in a small, task–oriented, connectivist MOOC

Learning in a small, task–oriented, connectivist MOOC | Linguagem Virtual | Scoop.it

Given that the MOOC was targeted at new HE lecturers, this MOOC intentionally created a more supportive learning environment than is encountered in some traditional cMOOCs such as ChangeMOOC. Not only were ‘veterans’ encouraged to support participants new to MOOCs and lecturing in HE, but the three tutors and three technologists also had a greater ‘presence’ than is customary in some traditional cMOOCs, providing individual and whole group support, particularly for those participants being assessed, and by monitoring discussions and providing feedback on completed tasks.

robyns tut's curator insight, October 4, 2013 6:27 PM

The introduction of MOOCS to students all over the world has tremendously changed the face of higher education in the world. This is because it has provided a platform for university students to extend their learning beyond the lecture room to the comfort of their homes. Also MOOCS gives alternate study opportunities, meaning that students have access to an online university, thus they do not need to enrol in a traditional institution.

The c MOOC as knowledge ecologies

The c MOOC as knowledge ecologies | Linguagem Virtual | Scoop.it

Ken's Key Takeaway:

I like the new term Personal Knowledge Network (PKN) 

 

Here are some quotes directly from the attached article:

 

Knowledge ecologies are thus self-controlled and self-contained entities.

 

Knowledge ecologies lacked a shared repertoire and are thus open and distributed knowledge domains.

 

The result of participation in a knowledge ecology is a restructuring of one’s PKN, a reframing of one’s theories-in-use and an extension of one’s external network with new tacit and explicit knowledge nodes; i.e. people and information (external level)

Knowledge ecology is a more general concept than intensional networks.

In essence, a knowledge ecology is a complex adaptive system that emerges from the bottom-up connection of PKNs.

I think MOOCs are part of an ongoing evolution that dates back to at least the invention of the textbook (long long ago). This trend has had at least two key elements over centuries:

Can social media enhance the MOOC experience? - eCampus News

Can social media enhance the MOOC experience? - eCampus News | Linguagem Virtual | Scoop.it
Researchers say ‘yes,’ but only when taking into consideration 3 key issues.
Though social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter are extremely popular for communication and collaboration—even among academics—when applied to online learning, course designers must understand that providing more options for communication without integration is not always best.

This is the main finding of a recent study conducted by academics in Australia that surveyed over 150 participants on their opinions of using social media as part of a 2014 MOOC for educators on designing their own online and blended teaching materials. [More on the detailed methodology can be found in the full report.] The MOOC, called “Carpe Diem” (CD), had just over 1,000 participants, a high level of engagement and completion, and included the use of hosting platform CourseSites’ LMS, as well as Twitter and Facebook for online communication and collaboration.

Research: How Video Production Affects Student Engagement

edX recently commissioned a study of nearly 1,000 videos, segmenting them out by by video type and production style, and discovered this among their other findings:

Shorter videos are more engaging. Engagement drops after 6 minutes.Videos with a more personal feeling are more effective than high-fidelity studio recordings.
Videos in which the instructor speaks quickly and with high enthusiasm are more engaging.Khan-style tablet drawings are more engaging than power point slides.

A Comparison of Five Free MOOC Platforms for Educators

A Comparison of Five Free MOOC Platforms for Educators | Linguagem Virtual | Scoop.it
There are a number of good options for educators looking to build their own MOOCs. Here is a look at five of the most interesting platforms.

 

By the end of 2013, most top universities had started to offer some sort of MOOC (massive open online course). Now, we are starting to see the MOOC product move into the corporate and private realm. Companies like Google and Tenaris are using MOOCs for training their employees, MongoDB is educating developers through the MOOC medium and thousands of private instructors are teaching classes on sites like Udemy.

 

If you are considering a MOOC for yourself or your organization, you’ll first need to determine which tool you will use to build the course. The following is an assessment of five popular free MOOC (and MOOC-like) platforms.

Moodle is an open-source LMS that allows users to build and offer online courses. It was built for traditional online classrooms rather than MOOCs, which attract a large number of students. It tends to be easier to install than edX, and there are hosted or one-click install options available.

Moodle is suited for organizations that want a full-featured, customizable LMS. The platform offers more than edX in terms of educational tools, analytics and SCORM compliance.
