MOOC Mania: Debunking the hype around massive open online courses

MOOC Mania: Debunking the hype around massive open online courses | MOOC | Scoop.it

"In the fall of 2011, Stanford University offered three of its engineering courses—Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, and Introduction to Databases—for free online... As Sebastian Thrun, the director of Stanford’s Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, tells the story, he assumed just a handful of people would enroll in his graduate-level AI class. Instead, more than 160,000 students registered. A massive number. That’s when the enormous hype began about massive open online courses, better known as “MOOCs.” Since then, Thrun and his fellow lab professors Daphne Koller and Andrew Ng have founded education organizations that offer free online classes."

MOOC development continues to pick up speed... around the world - ICEF Monitor - Market intelligence for international student recruitment

MOOC development continues to pick up speed... around the world - ICEF Monitor - Market intelligence for international student recruitment | MOOC | Scoop.it

The topic of MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses) has been extensively covered in various media both great and small, however it’s a technology – indeed an entire educational and political landscape – that is constantly evolving.

In response to this phenomenon, ICEF Monitor opens a two-part article on the current state of MOOCs. The first instalment will get you caught up on latest MOOC rumblings in the US and review the MOOC trend as a whole, and the second part look at developments in MOOCs internationally, with a focus on countries where the technology is beginning to flourish.

The Advance of the MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses): The Impending Globalisation of Business Education?

The Advance of the MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses): The Impending Globalisation of Business Education? | MOOC | Scoop.it

Abstract

 

Purpose - To analyse the rapid development of the Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) and the implications for business education. To critically examine the educational and business models of the MOOCs. To assess their present scale and scalability. To explore the responses of the universities to this challenge.

Design/methodology/approach - An analysis of the origins, structure and orientation of the MOOCs and to assess their future trajectory. To compare this development with earlier waves of e-learning.

Findings - The Massive Open Online Courses have considerable potential for growth with high quality products supported by leading universities. However they still need to resolve issues other e-learning organisations have faced including assessment, high drop out rates, and how to maintain viability.

Research limitations/implications - The MOOCs remain at a developmental stage, and it is not yet apparent whether their growth trajectories will be as ambitious as anticipated. However they are a definite advance over earlier online learning systems, and are worthy of further research regarding their performance.

Practical implications - The recent origin of the MOOCs involves an idealistic phase that is inspiring, but the question is will it last? Have the MOOCs the resilience to continue to develop as the universities have done over many decades? Further research will be required on this.

Originality/value - This is one of the first studies of the MOOCs to emerge which compares them with earlier initiatives in e-learning, and considers the adaptive responses of the universities.
