Questionsfor AACC

timokos's insight:

Salman Khan: Khanacademy is NOT a MOOC. 

 

Salman Khan reacts to questions about Khanacademy and the MOOC-revolution.

 

He explains why the Khanacademy is not a MOOC, but he does see online content and technology as provided by both the Khanacademy and MOOCs as supplemental tools that will alter the fysical education experience. This will create tremendous opportunities for learners ONLY if the physical education environment does not copy what is available online, but focuses on the real value it adds to learning by facilitating real human interaction and more time to be spend on cases or problem based learning, peer-learning and other indispensable values of phyisical learning environments.

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, 2014 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.

MOOCs in 2014: Breaking Down the Numbers Dhawal Shah, EdSurge News | MOOC-SCOOP | Scoop.it
In November 2011 I was taking one of the first MOOCs from Stanford. At that time, many new MOOCs were being announced and I started Class Central as a way to keep track of them and figure out what I should take next. The website gathers course listings through provider sites, social media, and tips

Peter B. Sloep's curator insight, January 4, 8:14 AM

... and this post summarizes a number of those statistics. So we learn the number of MOOCs now is approaching the three thousands, that Coursera is the largest platform provider with over 10 million learners who enrolled, that the Humanities, Computer Science and Business and Management are the largest subjects in MOOCs, that English is the largest language with Spanish as runner up, etc. Useful summary. It shows that MOOCs do fulfill a real need. Whether the numbers will keep growing at the same pace is of course doubtful. At some point in the growth curve course offerings will start to outrun the genuine demand, not to mention that the novelty will start to rub off. But there is no telling yet when that will be. According to Coursera's Daphne Koller, MOOCs are just entering maturity, which suggest there is ample room for growth and diversification. @pbsloep
