Peer Learning and MOOCs: Using Technology to Maximize Employee Learning

Peer Learning and MOOCs: Using Technology to Maximize Employee Learning | MOOCs, virtual campus, educational technology | Scoop.it

"...The first MOOCs were based on a connectivist framework, where the building of personal knowledge networks was considered more important than the content learned. Then, with the birth of Coursera, MOOCs started to more closely resemble traditional classroom experiences, with lectures comprising the main learning activity. Now, the pendulum is swinging back toward more collaboration, and preliminary results from new collaborative MOOC provider NovoEd suggest that students are more likely to stick with courses that emphasize social interaction...."

A Comparison of Five Free MOOC Platforms for Educators

A Comparison of Five Free MOOC Platforms for Educators | MOOCs, virtual campus, educational technology | Scoop.it
There are a number of good options for educators looking to build their own MOOCs. Here is a look at five of the most interesting platforms.

 

By the end of 2013, most top universities had started to offer some sort of MOOC (massive open online course). Now, we are starting to see the MOOC product move into the corporate and private realm. Companies like Google and Tenaris are using MOOCs for training their employees, MongoDB is educating developers through the MOOC medium and thousands of private instructors are teaching classes on sites like Udemy.

 

If you are considering a MOOC for yourself or your organization, you’ll first need to determine which tool you will use to build the course. The following is an assessment of five popular free MOOC (and MOOC-like) platforms.

Miloš Bajčetić's curator insight, February 27, 5:18 AM

Moodle is an open-source LMS that allows users to build and offer online courses. It was built for traditional online classrooms rather than MOOCs, which attract a large number of students. It tends to be easier to install than edX, and there are hosted or one-click install options available.

Moodle is suited for organizations that want a full-featured, customizable LMS. The platform offers more than edX in terms of educational tools, analytics and SCORM compliance.

"The report quantified many things that those involved in education already knew (or at least, suspected). Participation in online learning is increasing. Learning outcomes are largely positive. Interestingly, what this study does show is something that I hadn’t quite expected – that many of the numbers that had been continually rising over the past years were starting to show a slight decline."

Jan. 15th 2014 "marks the first day in class for Georgia Tech's new online Master’s degree in Computer Science program, which Georgia Tech, Udacity, and AT&T have jointly developed. 2,360 students applied within the 3-week application period. This is about 75% more than normally apply for the on-campus degree over the duration of an entire year. Of this pool, 375 have been accepted . 

The five courses launched in this first round are Advanced Operating Systems, Computer Networks, Machine Learning, Software Development Process, and AI for Robotics, created with Georgia Tech professors. They build on our goal of partnering with academia and industry to create courses to fill the job skills gap.

While today, these courses are only available to students admitted into the program,  the same courses will be open up for everyone in the world on the Udacity platform this Spring."

Top Free Classes's curator insight, January 5, 9:44 PM

 The  data was collected from the few Penn coursera MOOCs  and this article statements are inaccurate.  It  looks like  high %  of MOOC students are interested in Finance&Economics -- 42%. But this is just because  the majority of Penn MOOCs in 2013 were business courses, including MBA online courses from Wharton School. No wonder, that students in such classes are already well educated and 30+ . Look at the "Recommended Background" for An Introduction to Corporate Finance: "The core material for these courses consist of recorded lectures held for MBA students at Wharton.  As a result, the course is most appropriate for a graduate level business school student preparing for upper-level course work." 

https://www.coursera.org/course/finance

https://www.coursera.org/penn

It's great that such courses exist, but it has nothing to do with inability of MOOCs to educate poor or youth.
