Fiona Harvey's insight:

I watched this while I was on annual leave (really?) its over an hour long but it was interesting to listen to a 'non sales' pitch from a MOOC platform provider.

“Beyond #MOOCs: Is IT Creating a New, Connected Age?
Fiona Harvey's insight:

Nice short video - Spoiler alert :-) > drives home the message about connectedness - I liked the comment from Penn State about having a perpetual degree -  so as an alumni you could do a MOOC to upgrade your skills or update the information about a specific topic.  Also, we are in the Connected age, no longer the information age...there, I spoilt it for you. Sorry.

Fiona Harvey's insight:

Amazing resource for studying MOOCs - one of the Godfathers of MOOCs, over 595 resources on MOOCs from 2008 to date.  I discovered, in a reviewed the IRODL Journal 'A Systematic Study of the published literature on MOOCs from 2008 -2012' (from the International Review of Open and Distance Education, 2013) and thought I would add it here but decided to check to see if it was open or not.  I then came across this post from Downes, arguing that it was incomplete, and he offered this set of articles.

Some thoughts about MOOCs… | Lakeland Learning Technologies

Some thoughts about MOOCs… | Lakeland Learning Technologies | MOOCs | Scoop.it

Until now, I have been hesitant to share my thoughts regarding MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses) – arguably the hottest topic in EdTech since EdX, and Coursera began offering “the worlds best courses online for free”.

Fiona Harvey's insight:

Links to video of UoWisconsin Flexible teaching degree. Starts inn Autumn 2013 and looks really interesting.  Designed to fit around working adults, it is not confined to the academic year, you take the classes you need to take (take an assessment straight away if you have prior knowledge) you can choose as much as you need - using MOOCs and OERs.  Will be interested to see how this works out.  Its available in a variety of discipline areas.

MOOCs and Online Learning at Cornell

MOOCs and Online Learning at Cornell | MOOCs | Scoop.it

Cornell must decide whether or not to join other leading universities in offering free online courses to vast numbers of students.

Fiona Harvey's insight:

32 min video on MOOCs intro for Cornell Faculty.  This was in Oct 2012 so all very new.  They mention that they hoped that MOOCs would be a reosource for on campus students (19:28) which is what I'm interested in.
