I was one of the 36% of students who completed the Equine Nutrition course. I can tell you why I was able to... It was because there was excellent support from the lecturers, easy to access video lectures, no hard deadlines until the end of the course, meaning there was much more flexibility for people, like me, who work full time and can't always complete quizzes by 6pm each Monday for example. I could do it in my own time, as long as I stayed within the course duration and I found that some weeks I had much more time and could complete 2 weeks worth of readings & quizzes. 

In contrast, I just attempted to complete an Animal Behaviour course, but unfortunately due to hard deadlines each Monday, I was unable to complete quizzes on time and therefore could not achieve the marks necessary to pass, so I gave up halfway through. I have still completed readings and watched lectures, but with no result as the quizzes did not count after the weekly hard deadlines. Obviously many people had the same issue as me, because out of 24950, only

1428 people completed the course.

I believe course designers need to revisit their courses and ensure they are flexible enough for full time workers to do in their own time.

Patricia Christian's curator insight, February 8, 2:45 AM

An integral part of any online learning environment is the social synergy created via communication and discussion.  This is where deep reflection and learning take place.  Are students not feeling connected.  Are they collaborating and creating something new with the knowledge they have gained and sharing it with others?  Learning must me meaningful and applicable.

Online Courses Have Reached A Turning Point That Should Seriously Scare Colleges

Online Courses Have Reached A Turning Point That Should Seriously Scare Colleges | Latest in Learning | Scoop.it

"Colleges around the country should be worried. The quality of online courses is catching up fast. Depending on whom you talk to, MOOCs (massively open online courses) will upend and democratize higher education, or are half-baked approximations of lectures that can never equal the classroom."

Employers need talent; workers need jobs. Open Badges is a 21st Century credentialing approach that connects the two so both businesses and individuals thrive. More learning is rewarded and more employers get the precision, diversity and breadth in talent they seek. By 2016, we envision an Open Badge ecosystem that at least a million workers and a million students can access – the emergence of an assessment approach designed for our times.

Carlos Fosca's curator insight, June 19, 2013 5:47 PM

Los MOOCs son una tendencia cada vez más fuerte entre las Universidades de élite, cuyas consecuencias en la educación superior son aún impredecibles. Unos la consideran el futuro de la educación como bien público, otros el comienzo de un lucartivo negocio de unos pocos. Lo cierto es que hay que entrar a estudiarlos en profundidad para aprovechar adecuadamente muchas de sus ventajas.
