MOOCs Are Here to Stay - Point of View - May 2014 - by Christian Guellerin

MOOCs Are Here to Stay - Point of View - May 2014 - by Christian Guellerin | MOOCs, SPOCs and next generation Open Access Learning | Scoop.it

The question remains: What lies ahead for universities and schools that offer a general education? Instead of creating MOOCs, perhaps it would make more sense for them to invent the school of tomorrow. They might favor hands-on learning and experimentation, further students' confidence to take on the role of teacher by entrusting them with the freedom to devise and design, foster learning, exchange, and synergy by bringing people together to share and swap theories and applications, be it in small groups, or workshops. In this way they would fuel and feed the creative appetite, giving us the means and mental force to imagine a different world, a world that puts the environment on a pedestal, respects its moral obligations, where technology rhymes with humanity, and the economy champions progress and not simply financial gain.

 

As director of the École de Design, I have no chance of putting together a better MOOC than Stanford and Tim Brown has done on Design Thinking. But in our workshops our students. taught by excellent designers will know how to put together the world of tomorrow, using information of the world, from around the world. - By Christian Guellerin

Kim Flintoff's insight:

Seems to overlook that for many curation collections the purpose is little more than a bookmarking exercise.

Andreas Kuswara's curator insight, February 27, 2013 11:09 PM

with the increase in mash-up content, the issues of IP such as this would need our attention and commonsense.

Media&Learning's curator insight, February 28, 2013 3:40 AM

Features, best practices, copyright, use and examples of content curation. Basically everything it is useful to know about content curation. Plenty of useful information.

Mary Dawson's curator insight, June 21, 2013 11:39 AM

I am very aware of the fact that I am using a digital curation site to highlight external resources about images and Copyright and therefore it seems sensible to highlight some of the pitfalls of this approach.  I note that the Scoop.it example does not come out of this too well!

Have the major American platforms already won the day, or is there still room for outsiders?

 

This does not necessarily represent a threat for the instructional players in the field already, because the latter have an educational reputation and offer certification of users, but also because a ‘good’ MOOC requires enormous efforts before going on line: hours and hours of pedagogical video recording and a really solid course content.

The Most Important Education Technology in 200 Years

The Most Important Education Technology in 200 Years | MOOCs, SPOCs and next generation Open Access Learning | Scoop.it

Technology will define where online education goes next. All those millions of students clicking online can have their progress tracked, logged, studied, and probably influenced, too. Talk to Khan or anyone behind the MOOCs (which largely sprang from university departments interested in computer intelligence) and they’ll all say their eventual goal isn’t to stream videos but to perfect education through the scientific use of data. Just imagine, they say, software that maps an individual’s knowledge and offers a lesson plan unique to him or her.
