Question: How does video production affect student engagement in MOOCs?

 

How we went about it: We measured engagement by how long students watched each video and also whether they attempted to answer post-video assessment problems.

Interesting MOOC classification attempt by @Grainne Conoleand @Terese Bird. Worth looking into. Wonder if it can be extended to online learning in general.

Lynnette Van Dyke's curator insight, May 7, 2013 3:49 PM

Adult learning is a vast area of educational research and probably one of the most complicated. Adults learn differently and have different strategies in learning. Adults Learning Theory and Principles explain in details these strategies and sheds more light on how adults cultivate knowledge.

 Talking about adult learning brings us to the concept of Andragogy. According to the article Malcolm Knowles an American practitioner and theorist of adult education, defined andragogy as “the art and science of helping adults learn”. Knowles identified the six principles of adult learning as:Adults are internally motivated and self-directedAdults bring life experiences and knowledge to learning experiencesAdults are goal orientedAdults are relevancy orientedAdults are practicalAdult learners like to be respectedTom Whitby wrote this great article " Pedagogy Vs Andragogy " in which he argued for using these same principles of adults learning in kids learning. I highly recommend this article to those of you interested in learning more about Andragogy. I am also sharing with you this awesome chart created by floridatechnet.org  featuring the differences between pedagogy and Andragogy.

Excelente e simples comparativo sobre diferenças de aprendizagem entre adultos e crianças. Sem dúvida, vale um inforgrafico aqui pra ilustrar !

Prof. Mark Levit's comment, July 21, 2013 10:11 AM
With my time now time divided between university classrooms and the commercial sector, this chart suggests both reason and hope. Higher education today promises job readiness but the customs, standards, and traditions of the education business make that an unlikely outcome. For example, the college students before whom I stand weekly are substantially more interested in, and learn from, my stories of client, employee, & vendor relations and conflict than what appears in their texts. Those stories get remembered and provide practical rather than traditionally academic reasons to learn. Most students learn critical thinking and other university-mandated disciplines when reasons for learning them become evident. But with life now operating on fast-forward in this era of the Internet, paradigm shifts, and the profit-challenged corporate sector, we no longer have the luxury of education's traditional and (perhaps) obsolete modalities. When we cater to students other than those who perceive college as permission to party for 4 (or more) years, eliminate the aggressive financial goals of the powerful dollar-starved multinational corporations to which we refer as "universities," when we acknowledge students must learn for the purpose of competing on a commercial world stage, we'll enjoy,nonce again, the goals of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Simultaneously, we'll put our nation back on-track for renewed greatness.
