As many educational institutions are making the move to OERs (open educational resources), this framework is a timely addition to the conversation. It provides educators with a purposeful use of free resources and identifies ways in which they might be incorporated into learning environments.

Virtually unlimited classrooms: Pedagogical practices in massive open online courses


Via Ana Cristina Pratas

Ana Cristina Pratas's curator insight, November 25, 11:35 PM

Abstract:


Massive open online courses (MOOCs) have become a prominent feature of the higher education discourse in recent years. Yet, little is known about the effectiveness of these online courses in engaging participants in the learning process. This study explores the range of pedagogical tools used in 24 MOOCs, including the epistemological and social dimensions of instruction, to consider the extent to which these courses provide students with high-quality, collaborative learning experiences. Findings suggest that the range of pedagogical practices currently used in MOOCs tends toward an objectivist-individual approach, with some efforts to incorporate more constructivist and group-oriented approaches. By examining MOOCs through the lens of engaged teaching and learning, this study raises concerns about the degree to which MOOCs are actually revolutionizing higher education by using technology to improve quality, and challenges educators to strive for more creative and empowering forms of open online learning.

Instructional quality of Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) | Anoush Margaryan, Manuela Bianco, Allison Littlejohn - Computers & Education

Abstract: We present an analysis of instructional design quality of 76 randomly selected Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs). The quality of MOOCs was determined from first principles of instruction, using a course survey instrument. Two types of MOOCs (xMOOCs and cMOOCs) were analysed and their instructional design quality was assessed and compared. We found that the majority of MOOCs scored poorly on most instructional design principles. However, most MOOCs scored highly on organisation and presentation of course material. The results indicate that although most MOOCs are well-packaged, their instructional design quality is low. We outline implications for practice and ideas for future research.

ғelιх c ѕeyғarтн's curator insight, November 19, 8:37 AM
More of this kind of research is needed, although this article seems to follow the prevalent kind of thinking that groups different kind of learning activities which have chosen the #MOOC format into one genre, as if there was a genuine type. This does not appear to hold up to scrutiny. The finding that these MOOC formatted courses do not largely comply with the "instructional design principles" of e-learning but do excel in "organisation and presentation" instead, once combined with the fact that millions of learners flock to these very MOOC but could care less about conventional e-learning formats, leads one to reflect on the usefulness of said principles as analytical/evaluation tools and their scope as indicators of learning outcomes.

Explainer: what is a Small Private Online Course? | MOOC & OER Support Services | Scoop.it
As essentially online courses with a human touch, it is difficult to comprehend a future without SPOCs. Although I’d like to live in a future without the acronym, with its implication that small, private online courses are in any way new. The danger is that in considering the SPOC as a new phenomenon, its proponents may ignore the substantial work in online education that preceded it.
