Ben Wildavsky: "Making up Our Minds on MOOCs"

Ben Wildavsky: "Making up Our Minds on MOOCs" | MOOC-SCOOP | Scoop.it

Triumphalists and naysayers alike should be humble in the face of rapid educational change. As a cautious optimist about their future, I wouldn’t be in the least concerned if MOOCs didn’t pan out, so long as they morphed into, or were overtaken by, some new, improved, pedagogically superior educational technology. We just don’t know. It’s far too soon to declare that MOOCs will conquer the earth – or that they will die a slow, ignoble death.

How to MOOC? – A pedagogical guideline for practitioners

How to MOOC? – A pedagogical guideline for practitioners | MOOC-SCOOP | Scoop.it

Massive Open Online Courses, shortly MOOCs, are a trending phenomenon in online education. Neither distance education nor online courses are new, but especially in the field of technology enhanced learning, MOOCs have been gathering enormous attention by the public. Thus, following the main idea of bringing education to a broad range of people, two universities in Graz developed an xMOOC platform for the German speaking area, mostly addressing people in Austria. Before the first courses started the authors reflected on how such a MOOC should be carried out and which key factors (didactical, technical and administrative) have to be considered.
This research study strongly concentrates on developing a checklist for practitioners who would like to do an xMOOC in the future by examining different xMOOCs and reflecting first experiences gathered through daily work on MOOCs.
It can be concluded that doing a Massive Open Online Course is much more challenging as maybe expected at first sight. Nevertheless the proposed checklist will help to overcome first barriers and provide solid steps towards one’s first online course.

"A major national investment of up to €16-47 million annually in the coordinated development of online education in the country. This includes the formation of at least one national MOOC platform, research-based competence and knowledge development, cooperation between higher education and industry in using MOOCs for work-related training and research into learning analytics."
