Susanna Sancassani's curator insight, May 19, 2014 3:36 AM

Is it possible to blend cMOOCs and xMOOCs approach? George Siemens says no, but it is possible to create synergies between different  parallel layers...I think that real paths of real students could be something more complexe than we can imagine: if they are allowed to do it, perhaps they  will mix  the two layers in very personal and different ways in continuous evolution during the learning experience...what do you think about it?

KCenter SKEMA's curator insight, May 20, 2014 12:30 PM

"the difference between xMOOCs & cMOOCs and possible ways to blend them.

The interest in making xMOOCs more like cMOOCs (a few silly folks have called it MOOC 2.0 – haha) seems to be growing. In particular, MOOC providers are adding “social” in the same way that vitamins are added to food, “Now, with beta-carotene”! After much discussion at our designjam, I’ve concluded that cMOOCs and xMOOCs are incompatible. They cannot be blended. Pedagogically and philosophically, they are too different. It’s like trying to make a cat a dog. Entertaining, perhaps, but a fruitless venture."

MOOCs and Beyond - eLearning Papers 33 released | elearningeurope.info

MOOCs and Beyond - eLearning Papers 33 released | elearningeurope.info | Open Ed, MOOCs, OER | Scoop.it

Issue number 33 of eLearning Papers focuses on the challenges and future of Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs), a trend in education that has skyrocketed since 2008. 

[…]

Among other topics, eLearning Papers 33 explores whether MOOCs may be a viable solution for education in developing countries and analyses the role of these emerging courses in the education system, especially in higher education. Furthermore, valuable examples from the field are presented, such as the quad-blogging concept and a game-based MOOC developed to promote entrepreneurship education.

Peter B. Sloep's curator insight, June 6, 2013 2:34 AM

I have little to add to this other than that the collection of papers provides a distinctive European perspective on MOOCs. As a consequence (?), the focus is more on the pedagogy than on the economics of higher education (@pbsloep)
