EMOOCs 2014 Conference | February 10-12, 2014 in Lausanne (Switzerland)

EMOOCs 2014 Conference | February 10-12, 2014 in Lausanne (Switzerland) | MOOCs | Scoop.it

At the moment of writing this European conference on MOOCs is still running. It has an interesting format, featuring four different tracks: policy, business, research and experience. If you want to hear about the first two, you need to come to the conference in rainy Lausanne, Switserland; or perhaps follow it remotely through its hashtag #emoocs2014. No such drastic measures, however, are needed to learn more about the research and experience tracks. The papers have all been published in the conference proceedings, edited by Ulrike Cress and Carlos Kloos Delagado. They may be downloaded from the conference homepage. A direct link to them is http://www.emoocs2014.eu/sites/default/files/Proceedings-Moocs-Summit-2014.pdf

Peter B. Sloep's curator insight, February 10, 2014 3:41 PM

Since MOOCs still are a new kid on the block, as these pages testify, you cannot expect realistically to find thorough, well-elaborated papers with deep theoretical underpinnings and balanced discussions of the empirical findings. Still, for anyone with an interest in MOOCs there is a lot of interesting stuff, about completion rates, about self-guidance and its cognates, about MOOCs for such contexts as language learning, and much more. Quite a bit of the work flagged as MOOC related would not have been unfitting for a general conference on elearning or technology-enhanced learning, and I suspect that, had we not had MOOCs, many papers would have ended up there. But that is not criticism, rather an acknowledgement of the fact that MOOCs have given the old topic of online learning a new lease of life, be it in disguise. Who can be opposed to that?

Reviews range of MOOCs, talks about testing, drop out rates etc. Tries hard to equate MOOCs withe f2f classes but not comparable in that way.
