Some Thoughts About OER Policy

Some Thoughts About OER Policy | oer ticker | Scoop.it

"National OER policies determine the framework within which other OER actors can develop. By doing so they form a mighty leverage to shape the OER ecosystem of a country. Though we are still at the beginning, initial achievements are promising. Approaches like the OER policy registry by Creative Commons provide the possibilities to follow and speed up the development. Supportive will also be, that openness and sharing are among the core values of the OER movement. If we manage to obtain this also for the field of policy by sharing our experiences and lessons learned, fast progression should be possible."

Multiple pathways: Blending xMOOCs & cMOOCs - by George Siemens

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?

From the early leader/founder of MOOCs

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."

Das Modell #CorporateMOOC entwickelt sich stetig weiter: Hier ruht noch viel Potenzial für die tatsächliche Umsetzung des vielbeschworenen "Lebenslangen Lernens". Ein schöner Erfolg für @iversity bei dem alle Partner gewinnen - mal sehen, wie lange es dauert bis sich ein deutsches Unternehmen gezielt an diese Formate wagt.

Finding existing practices of open learning recognition

Finding existing practices of open learning recognition | oer ticker | Scoop.it

"The Institute of Learning Innovation at the University of Leicester (partner of the VMPass initiative) is working on the OpenCred study, which aims to identify practices taking place with regard to the recognition of non-formal, open learning, for example a MOOC learner having a certificate or badge recognised by a HE/ Vocational institution or an employer."

Anne-Christin Tannhäuser's insight:

Do you know of any such initiatives or examples anywhere in Europe? Do you know reports, blog posts or other mentions of such recognition on the Web? Are you in touch with someone active in the field?

MOOC Platform Iversity offers ECTS after passing on-site exam

Launched last October, European MOOC platform iversity.org has now reached nearly 500,000 enrollments in its 28 massive open online courses. 

As a pilot run, students were able to obtain ECTS (European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System) credit points in two courses — "Introduction to Business Studies" and "Marketing" — even if they were not enrolled at one of the institutions offering the course.

Gabi Witthaus's curator insight, March 18, 2014 8:35 AM

The European MOOC platform iversity.org is running a pilot in offering certification to students on the basis of exams, which they sit in various centres in Germany. It's a nice way of widening participation in higher education, but I'm not sure of the validity of exams in testing knowledge, and wonder whether these MOOCs will just end up supporting learners in 'learning for the test'?
