Question: How does video production affect student engagement in MOOCs?

 

How we went about it: We measured engagement by how long students watched each video and also whether they attempted to answer post-video assessment problems.

Five Myths about MOOCs

Five Myths about MOOCs | Learning Technologies and MOOC | Scoop.it

"The Great Backlash against massive open online courses, better known as MOOCs, is in full swing. After an initial flurry of positive press, a firestorm of opposition has mobilized against them. MOOCs, we are told, are either a juggernaut threatening to bulldoze education's core values or an overly hyped bubble about to burst. "

Google’s heavy involvement in the MOOC space is a clear indicator that this vertical is relevant. I assume that Google knows exactly how much interest in online education exists on a global level based on its access to search queries.

Perception and use of massive open online courses among medical students in a developing country: multicentre cross-sectional study | Aboshady et al., BMJ Open

About one-fifth of undergraduate medical students in Egypt have heard about MOOCs. Students who actively participated showed a positive attitude towards the experience, but better time management skills and faster Internet connection speeds are required. Further studies are needed involving enrolled students in large representative samples, to assess their experiences using MOOCs. In addition, more effort is needed to raise awareness among students of such courses, as most students who had not heard about MOOCs did show interest in participating once they became aware of the courses.

Peter B. Sloep's curator insight, February 11, 2015 7:27 AM

When MOOCs rose to prominence, Daphne Koller was one of the first to point out their promises for democratizing education. MOOCs, for example, are made available to everybody with Internet acces, including countries in the developing world, who now had access to educational content from top universities, as Koller said. In this lies the danger of cultural imperialism and I have reported on this in these pages as well as written about it (in the now defunct MOOC Forum journal). Still, these are mere opinions,  I had never seen any data about the actual appreciation of MOOCs by students in developing countries, until this paper was brought to my attention, that is. Hidden in the text is the one precious sentence which states that cultural issues did not appear to be a problem for the (Egyptian) students canvassed (through a questionnaire). In stead, other problems were mentioned, general ones such as a lack of time and more specific ones such as insufficient bandwidth. Altogether a very useful study, certainly for MOOC providers who have confessed to want to cater for the needs of students in developing countries. @pbsloep
