Do you know what MOOCs are? Massively Open Online Classes transform education

Do you know what MOOCs are? Massively Open Online Classes transform education | Non-traditional student | Scoop.it

More than 300,000 people have signed up to the University of Edinburgh's free massive open online courses (Moocs) since they were first announced in July 2012, it has been revealed.

For every student physically studying in Edinburgh, there are now ten online learners, a statement from the university says.

Can MOOCs and OER (open educational resources) represent a strategic marketing opportunity for educational institutions?


David Cormier writes about it: "According to the Times Higher article from yesterday, The University of Edinburgh got 300,000 students for its Coursera courses.


The article magically sets out what I have always thought was the most likely business model for MOOCs – the loss leader.


In 220 words they lay out their reasoning… they currently have 2000 online students. They want to have 10000 students. One can imagine that they hope that of the 300K 8000 students not currently registered for ‘for pay’ courses at the institution will decide to pay money to have a longer relationship with their institution."


From the original article by David Cormier: "...your ability to market online courses could increasingly be a question of whether you have the kind of faculty that people want to take a course with.


If i’m looking to learn something about connectivism, and I see George’s name on half the things that are written about them, I’m going to be tempted to take the connectivism course with george at Athabasca.


If he’d published all those things in closed journals, it seems less likely that they would get found..."



Interesting. Insightful. 8/10
