180 MOOCs to Start the New Year (Is This the Crest of the Wave?)

180 MOOCs to Start the New Year (Is This the Crest of the Wave?) | medical toursim | Scoop.it
If you haven’t tried a free MOOC, I’d do it sooner than later. In recent weeks, the whole MOOC project took a hit when a University of Pennsylvania study found what was becoming empirically obvious — that MOOCs generally have very low participation and completion rates, and what’s more, most of the students taking the courses are “disproportionately educated, male, [and] wealthy,” and from the United States. This study, combined with other disappointing experiments and findings, will likely make universities think twice about sinking money into creating MOOCs (they can cost anywhere from $15,000 to $50,000 to develop). It might take another 6-12 months to see the shift. But I’d hazard a guess that this January might be the peak of the free MOOC trend. Enjoy them while they last. Whatever their shortcomings, they can be quite informative, and you can’t beat the price.

Steve Vaitl's curator insight, January 7, 2014 10:49 AM

Very little of this do I find this surprising.

MFaculty's curator insight, January 7, 2014 10:44 PM

The insights revealed through the previous studies serves to codify what many educators, and even more marketers knew intuitively; free always begs the question of quality. Don't hear what I'm not saying. I'm not saying ALL MOOCs are low quality, I'm merely saying that without academic rigor and effective management, even the best intentions can slide off the rails.

 

I too had noted a number of previous MOOC supporters distancing themselves from the initiatives. Was there ever an identified demand for MOOCs, or were they simply a result of benevolent thinking? Regardless, it is interesting that the 'target audience' for MOOCs are apparently the ones taking least advantage of them. Perhaps the age old marketing rendition of supply and demand has merit still has merit.

Health Care Reform: Views From The Hospital Executive Suite

Health Care Reform: Views From The Hospital Executive Suite | medical toursim | Scoop.it

Unlike politicians, pundits, and the public, the leaders of America’s leading hospitals and health systems are optimistic about reform (Figure 1). Fully 65 percent indicated that by 2020, they believe the healthcare system as a whole will be somewhat or significantly better than it is today. And when they were asked about their own institutions, the optimism was even more dramatic. Fully 93 percent predicted that the quality of care provided by their own health system would improve. This is probably related to efforts to diminish hospital acquired conditions, medication errors, and unnecessary re-admissions, as encouraged by financial penalties in the ACA.

They talked about the role Content Curation has for Social Media Marketing and how it will help social media evolve from the social graph to the interest graph, something key for professionals who tend to have niche long-tail interests.

The indicators are starting to show a strong correlation between the notion of giving and economic success. After all, it’s a well-worn truth that trust drives economics and exchange. Giving is a profound way to develop that trust within a community network. So, give thanks, then find the right community, and give a bit of yourself. Good things will follow.
