Ana Cristina Pratas's curator insight, July 25, 2013 11:47 AM

"Instruction does not equate to learning. This is the fundamental fly in the ointment of instructional design, and the epistemological failing of learning management systems and most MOOC platforms. Learning, unfortunately, is something no instruction has ever quite put its finger on, and something that no methodology or approach can guarantee. Instead, pedagogical praxis creates roads along which learning may take place (along with plenty of other experiences); and assessment is merely a system of checkpoints along the way to evaluate how well the road, the vehicle, and the driver are cooperating. In other words, assessment doesn’t measure learning. Assessment measures the design of the instruction."

Cutting the Strings: MOOCs and the Unbundling of Online Education

Cutting the Strings: MOOCs and the Unbundling of Online Education | Online Learning and Assessment | Scoop.it

Do recent reports that San Jose State University would “take a breather” from for-credit MOOCs indicate that online learning isn’t ready for prime time? As MOOC experiments proliferate, teachers, administrators and accreditation officials are carefully monitoring each new revelation. Until now, the major platforms (Coursera, Udacity and edX) have been portrayed as similarly organized curriculum machines that stamp out high quality results at each turn. I expect this perception will change as they and other platforms become more clearly defined.

 

The saying goes that customers in new markets tend to embrace “all-in-one” solutions: they like a one stop shop. As a market becomes more sophisticated, selective customers prefer to assemble separate components into a system that works best for their particular needs. This perspective has held true for many markets, including home stereo systems, bicycles and computers. Likewise, educational systems are comprised of sophisticated components that must work in coordination. These have traditionally been bundled at a specific location — the school classroom. MOOCs signal the emergence of high-quality bundled educational experiences that are not bounded by limits on registration and geography.
