MOOCs and copyright law

MOOCs and copyright law | MOOC: Massive Open Online Courses | Scoop.it

"Massive open online courses (MOOCs) are still pretty new but more and more universities, platform providers and publishers are beginning to create MOOCs to raise their profile and showcase high-quality materials. But there is a risk that reputations can take a serious hit if materials and data are being used incorrectly, or without permission."

skiinglibrarian's curator insight, April 19, 5:48 PM

Excellent analysis of the copyright issues that educators need to consider as they  utilise the open online course revolution. There are such opportunities for learning and teaching but TIME needs to be given to ensuring that resources used are attributed appropriately, are legitimate and permissions sought where necessary. Many MOOC platforms are commercial in nature and profit focused (in the long term) so Statutory licences and Educational exceptions are  not applicable.

Are we already entering a post-MOOC era?

Are we already entering a post-MOOC era? | MOOC: Massive Open Online Courses | Scoop.it

The introduction of MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses) a couple of years ago prompted a heady mixture of excitement, panic, and scepticism.

 

Since then, a lot has happened. ICEF Monitor looks at the current stage of MOOCs as well as the new offshoots they have spawned: SPOCs (Small Private Online Courses) and SOOCs (Selective Open Online Courses).

 

According to some experts, these smaller, more selective programme models may be more than an alternative to MOOCs; they may be the more sustainable and engaging forms of online learning in a "post-MOOC" era.
