Could a MOOC help you learn smarter? CIPD (blog) She points out the fastest growth in MOOC sign-ups is among professional people who don't necessarily want to be formally examined, but want to join a group where learning is about picking a topic...
MOOC Pro's insight:

Some interesting stuff in here from the CIPD, of particular interest is the forthcoming MOOC from Leeds Uni in conjunction with Marks & Spencer around Business Innovation.

 

Also good to see them leading the debate away from judging MOOCs by their completion rates.

"The recent rise of MOOCs has created a buzz in the world of corporate education. Theories and experiments on how to leverage the systematic within corporate settings, have sprouted all sorts of interesting constructions including "Corporate MOOCs" that function as a sort of pre-selection for recruiters. "

ID and Other Reflections: 11 Differences between a MOOC and an Online Course

ID and Other Reflections: 11 Differences between a MOOC and an Online Course | MOOCs for learning at work | Scoop.it

I love this definition of MOOCs by Ignatia Inge deWaard in her e-book, MOOC Yourself: “A MOOC is a non-defined pedagogical format to organize learning /teaching/training on a specific topic in an informal, online, and collaborative way.”

MOOC Pro's insight:

We absolutely agree with the distinctions made here between a MOOC and an online course. What do you think?

Nanodegrees are Udacity's latest innovation. They aren't accredited by any university, but do they need to be to have credibility with employers?

Study of MOOCs Suggests Dropping the Label ‘Dropout’ – Wired Campus - Blogs - The Chronicle of Higher Education

Study of MOOCs Suggests Dropping the Label ‘Dropout’ – Wired Campus - Blogs - The Chronicle of Higher Education | MOOCs for learning at work | Scoop.it
Are #MOOC dropouts really "dropouts?" How about "bystanders?" http://t.co/9A9mjAPk1W
MOOC Pro's insight:

A short summary of this paper: http://cs.stanford.edu/people/ashton/pubs/mooc-engagement-www2014.pdf from researchers at Stanford and Cornell university.

 

This is important because it adds some much needed nuance and balance to the tired and short sighted arguments about the high drop out rates of MOOCs.

 

The paper defines 5 types of engagement based on data from Coursera MOOCs.

Ten big reasons for the rise of corporate MOOCs | TrainingZone.co.uk | MOOCs for learning at work | Scoop.it

Last week I delivered a presentation on MOOCs to corporate L&D people at Learning Technologies 2014 and was amazed to find that a majority of the packed room had taken a MOOC and, at the end, those who hadn’t certainly wanted to try one.
