What Professors Can Learn From 'Hard Core' MOOC Students

What Professors Can Learn From 'Hard Core' MOOC Students | Open internet stuff | Scoop.it
People who have taken dozens of massive open online courses share their advice for those teaching them.

 

"Most are driven mainly by curiosity rather than the desire to show off their certificates to any potential employer, and none has paid for a verified certificate."

 

"Clarity and organization are key."

"Professors are the stars."

"Text still matters."

"Passion matters most."

 

'Mr. Seiter agrees that it as possible to learn as much online as in a traditional course, but that to do so usually requires doing optional readings, which most MOOCers skip."

 

Markus Lauer- ""If you want to become an expert in the field," he says, "I think you need the book."

Interesting view from Hard Core MOOCers...as much as it may be viewed that "professors are the stars" not sure I like that concept..the subject should be the star and the students should be at the centre.

Here lies a great task for engaging instructional design:

 

research shows that even intrinsically motivated MOOC participants end up doing as little as possible to get the grade, as an effect of the design of the MOOC.

 

"The design of the Mooc [Fundamentals of Clinical Trials] had encouraged students to step on to a “treadmill” of absorbing content and then taking a test, he said, rather than applying it in real life." 

 

"Professor Littlejohn said that the research team would be speaking to Mooc platforms such as the UK’s FutureLearn and the US-based Coursera about the results to help design more engaging programmes."
