5 platforms analysed in a succinct comparison. Interesting because some platforms have changed features. Authored by a MOOC aggregator creator.

From sessions on MOOCs and MOOC research...biggest takeaway for me is that MOOCs are moving away from disruption toward another tool in the toolkit of ed tech in higher ed.

Awesome technology turns tweets from the EDUCAUSE Learning Initiative meeting into a slide show of volunteer reporting-out. It's not a replacement for being there, of course, but we weren't  :(


We especially like slide 12.

Gabi Witthaus's curator insight, August 22, 2013 4:04 AM

Good commentary by Peter Sloep: "This concise article contains little news for those who keep up to date on MOOC developments. However, it still is useful in that it only takes on the question of whether (higher) education with MOOCs can be turned into a viable business. This is revealing, both in that the Economist concludes that the verdict is still out on that question and in that no single sentence is devoted to the question of whether this is a good idea in the first place."

I suppose it is The Economist, after all...

Offering MOOC's... a “lemming-like rush”? Interesting metaphor.

Fiona Harvey's curator insight, September 21, 2013 7:16 AM

Business models are appearing - Coursera announced this week that they have made $1million on their Signature track (although this pales into insignificance against their investors $66 million) Better than nothing though!  Interesting article though.

Drawing the Blueprint As We Build: Setting Up a Library-based Copyright and Permissions Service for MOOCs

Drawing the Blueprint As We Build: Setting Up a Library-based Copyright and Permissions Service for MOOCs | MOOC Permissions | Scoop.it

The rapid growth of Massively Open Online Courses (MOOCs) in higher education has raised the question of what services libraries on campus can, and should, provide for these courses.  One area in which librarians are frequently the source of advice and assistance is in providing copyright education and obtaining permissions to use copyrighted material, and there is now a pressing need to address those areas for MOOCs. This article describes the creation of a copyright and permissions service for MOOC instructors within the Duke University Libraries.  Although the service has not been free of difficulties, and its success in actually obtaining permission for desired uses has been uneven, overall the response from faculty has been positive, and the libraries believe that this service is a fruitful and sensible way for them to support the MOOC phenomenon.

Information Literacy in MOOCs

... This analysis of MOOCs shows that information literacy skills play a significant role in MOOC participation. Demographic studies of MOOCs show further that the majority of the participants can be expected to have well-developed information literacy skills. It is concluded that MOOC developers should give consideration to the role of information literacy in MOOCs.

This infographic is designed as a comic and explains the ins and outs of using Creative Common images. You might consider using it with students. Originally designed in German this is an English translation by the designer. The infographic designed in German provides an explanation as to how you might read the infographic as a comic, providing short descriptions for each section. You may access the German version at this link: http://www.bildersuche.org/creative-commons-infografik.php and if you use Google translator it will translate the text of the article (but not the infographic).

Dean Mantz's curator insight, July 29, 2013 12:37 AM

As a teacher that strongly believes in visual learning, this is a highly recommended visual to aid in the introduction and understanding of what Creative Commons is and how to use it properly.
