Leonard Waks's curator insight, November 16, 1:04 AM

MOOCs came into existence because of the convergence of the technology and the sensed need for low cost higher education. They have been largely a 'ready-fire-aim' project. 2013 was thre yhear that exposed the MOOC hype. In 2014 many developments have been taking place below the radar. I now see some clear potential benefits from MOOCs. Progress is being made on all of these fronts. I am guessing that 2015 will be the year when the smoke clears and more concrete plans, based on the actual experience of the last three years, will emerge.

This is fascinating. On the very days that the Spain MOOC conference meets there will be a similar Latin American MOOC conference in Quito Ecuador. I will be one of the featured speakers at that conference. I am guessing that the planners of these two meetings are unaware of one another's efforts.

Andrew Gerkens's curator insight, September 22, 10:14 PM

Explores the reality of how registrants engage with MOOCs. People rarely 'complete' a MOOC, but may gain value through building their networks (social learning) and exploring the curated content (saves time/effort in searching the broader web).


Does this mean that MOOCs should adapt to suit the way most people use them, or should they keep their course structure with options to complete?

10 tendencias para a aprendizagem mista

#avancee

Leonard Waks's curator insight, November 16, 1:20 AM

Of these 10 proposed drivers, I an guessing that the most important will be #5 and #6. At least for the time being, universities are really strapped for funds. Consider for # 5 a 'MOOC-Based wrapped course' where a prof assigns a MOOC as homework, and then  meets with the class one day a week = and follows up with a couple of weeks of class time at the end for projects and examinations. This strikes me as a  good division of labor in many courses - letting the high production videos do what they do best and the prof do what demands a human mind and heart for problem solving and coaching and mentoring. It can reduce faculty time by more than 1/2 without loss of quality. Now for #6, consider a group of twenty faculty members teaching wrapped courses based on the very same MOOC. They will have many questions and concerns and they can (a) find each other and (b) address them collectively through their learning network. The only other 'driver' that floats my boat at this point is #3. Many students like MOOC-based courses. The lectures are excellent and fit conveniently into schedules, and the professor is available to serve his or her most important functions. But I wouldn't oversell this. Many students still prefer day to day hand holding and may actually need it from a socio-emotional perspective to stay engaged in the course. So I'm betting on #5 and #6 as most important.

[Infographic] The 6 laws of learning to develop eLearning

[Infographic] The 6 laws of learning to develop eLearning | My Learning Adventure | Scoop.it

Laws of Learning To Develop eLearning Infographic

Law of Readiness: This law states that learning can only take place when a student is ready to learn. For instance, “When an individual is ready to act or to learn, he acts or learns more effectively and with greater satisfaction than when not ready.”Law of Exercise: This law is simple. The more a person repeats something, the better he is able to retain that knowledge. Remember back in grade school when the teacher would have you write spelling words three times each and then use them in a sentence? She was practicing this law. Part two of this law states that knowledge not used becomes weakened and disappears from memory. “Use it or lose it.” isn’t just a random saying: when it comes to learning, it is completely accurate.Law of Effect
1) Learning is strengthened when associated with a pleasant or satisfying feeling. Learning is more likely to happen again in the future.
2) Learning is weakened when associated with an unpleasant feeling, becoming less likely for learning to occur again in the future. Learners will try to avoid it.
3) Learning occurs when it results in satisfaction and the learner derives pleasure out of it.Law of Primacy: It is nearly impossible to unlearn the first thing you have been taught so it is essential that an eLearning course teach the correct information. Make sure any information you include is correct, but show special care at the beginning when concepts are most likely to stick.Law of Recency: This law reminds us that we remember the most recent (last) material covered. For this reason, eLearning designers should make a point of including chapter or unit reviews and building on previous knowledge.Law of Intensity: The more excitement a lesson creates, the more likely it will be remembered. Creating a hands-on experience, or one that causes the student to feel strong emotion will make the lesson more easily remembered.

Massive Open Online Course (MOOC): A Guide for Beginners

Massive Open Online Course (MOOC): A Guide for Beginners | My Learning Adventure | Scoop.it
This book is written for educators who want to leverage on the open online courses to better themselves. This book serves as a guide for beginners who wish to explore the various platforms of MOOCs, namely Coursera, iversity, edX, ALISON, Canvas Network, Open Learning, Academic Earth, Future Learn, Peer to Peer University, Saylor.Org, and Udemy. There are two chapters that first introduce to the readers what MOOC is and how MOOC can serve as a medium of learning. Each chapter then starts by simply introducing the name of the MOOC platforms that follows with descriptions of the respective MOOC platforms. Readers will appreciate the inclusion of screenshots to ease their navigation in making the most out of the online resources. It is hoped that this book will provide a resource to advocate for the best possible ways to learn from the open world.
