The emergence of x and c MOOCs and pedagogy

The emergence of x and c MOOCs and pedagogy | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it

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.

Worth a read, but could be better organized (define "x" and "c" MOOCs early, for instance)

Creo que esas combinaciones de los cursos masivos en línea va a servir de plataforma apra establecer nuevos lineamientos tecno pedagógicos de la educación a distancia, posiblemente la era del e-learning se transforme.

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.

"Snapchat selfie lenses and Pokemon Go, not Magic Leap and HoloLens. Smartphones are how Mark Zuckerberg sees augmented reality going mainstream, rather than potentially awkward headsets and glasses. That’s an important clue to how Facebook will adapt to this next computing platform."

Innovation and Placemaking: The State of the Movement

Innovation and Placemaking: The State of the Movement | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it
Innovation does not happen in isolation. It happens as a result of the synergies that are made possible by place: between people, ideas, and opportunities. For much of the 20th century, economic life existed separately from the places in which people lived; it was isolated instead in remote office parks and corporate campuses in areas like Silicon Valley and Boston’s Route 128 Corridor. Today, however, many practitioners are recognizing that the interplay between inventive people and the places they share is what accelerates the exchange of ideas, resources, and talent—the very process that fuels innovation.
