Context Is King: Why Today's MOOCs Don't Meet Corporate Needs

Context Is King: Why Today's MOOCs Don't Meet Corporate Needs | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it
We need to return to the MOOC as originally envisioned: social learning. Best-in-class corporate education creates a place where colleagues can connect, form networks, and share ideas. It is increasingly important to engage learners socially, because they stand to learn as much from each other as from formal instruction. This does not require forgoing the best-in-class lectures, but rather re-packaging them as part of a broader pedagogical strategy that includes social learning as a core part of the student experience.

Marta Torán's curator insight, February 13, 1:46 PM

Los MOOCs nos permiten conocer cómo interactúan lo estudiantes con los recursos y con los demás alumnos. Gracias a esta metodología podremos predecir y personalizar en función de la motivación de los estudiantes. Deberán profundizar en experiencias interactivas completas. Lo mejor de los MOOCs es que podremos mejorarlos a partir de los datos que proporcionan.

Coursera and Udacity are known for giving education away for free online. But now they're finding there's money to be made in the classroom.
Carlos Fosca's insight:

Siguen las redefiniciones del modelo de negocios de los MOOCs. En esta ocasión Coursera propone que la mejor forma de usar los MOOcs son dentro de clases presenciales usando los contenidos digitales para una estrategia de "flipped classroom". Bajo esta modalidad cobraría a las universidades por el uso de contenidos y plataforma. Mientras que Udacity propone cobrar por impartir clases en su plataforma.  Dos modelos diferentes que buscan de algún modo hacer rentable este nuevo paradigma educativo.

The underlying inequality of MOOCs

The underlying inequality of MOOCs | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it

In practical terms, sustained participation in a MOOC requires a set of resources and infrastructure that is a privilege, as many of us, including Agarwal, often forget. A reliable electricity supply, frequent and uninterrupted access to a device capable of going online and playing video and sound, and a secure, unrestricted Internet connection are essential starting blocks – as is a safe and comfortable space in which to learn.

The emergence of x and c MOOCs and pedagogy

The three sorts of MOOCs would serve different types of learners differently based on what the institutions would offer and what the learners might need and expect.

Carlos Fosca's insight:

A pesar de su corta edad los MOOCs siguen experimentando variaciones importantes. Los x-MOOCs (modelo automatizado, centrado en la tecnología y con rentabilida económica esperada de la oferta formativa en línea, Ej: Udacity), los c-MOOCs (basados en el conectivismo, el aprendizaje distribuido y más centrado en el alumno. Ej: EdX) y una tercera variante que puede ser una especie de híbrido de las dos anteriores.

Alfredo Corell's curator insight, September 22, 2013 7:23 PM

What would be the future of MOOCs?

As discussed, the three sorts of MOOCs would serve different types of learners differently based on what the institutions would offer and what the learners might need and expect.

There are no clear crystal balls in accurately predicting what would emerge out of these winners, though it is for sure that the ultimate model of Higher Education would likely go with xMOOCs within the coming decade, as the demand for qualifications, formal teacher-based education is still the norm.

El MIT publica una de las investigaciones más exhaustivas realizadas sobre MOOC hasta la fecha

El MIT publica una de las investigaciones más exhaustivas realizadas sobre MOOC hasta la fecha | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it

"Una ligera mayoría de los que deciden apostar por la formación a través de los MOOCs lo hacen buscando la certificación y muchos de los participantes, como hemos citado anteriormente, son profesores. Un 57% de los encuestados declaró su intención de obtener un certificado tras finalizar el curso. Además, un 39% de los 200.000 encuestados se identificaron tanto en el pasado como en el presente como profesionales de la enseñanza. Este es un dato a tener en cuenta ya que aunque no se esté interesado en la certificación, existe una profunda demanda de formación de carácter gratuito por parte de los profesionales y los MOOCs cumplen excepcionalmente esta función."

"The average completion rate for the 17 automatically marked  MOOCs courses was 7.7 percent, while for the 11 that involved some degree of peer assessment, the figure was 4.8 percent. 

Generally speaking, for most of the courses, completion rate is defined as people who earned a certificate -- the people you could deem to have passed the course...."
