"I’m a little behind on my MOOC, but I can write about what it’s been like so far. First of all, I didn’t think I’d like the video lectures, but they’re actually kind of helpful. I’m a face-to-face guy, or at least I thought I was. As a student, I’m finding that I actually love the videos because I can pause and go back as often as I want. It makes me think about being in front of the classroom, when I impart glorious wisdom onto students. How much do they miss? I miss an awful lot in a video, so I pause it, go back, and do that two or three more times. In class, the students do ask me to repeat myself or to explain further, but I wonder how often they must wish they could do it just one more time."
New York Times Online Classes Fuel a Campus Debate New York Times Many universities have been quick to sign up with outside providers to offer the “massive open online courses,” known as MOOCs, either as stand-alone courses or in a hybrid format,...
Patterns are designed to capture best practice in a specific domain. Pedagogical patterns try to capture expert knowledge of the practice of teaching and learning. The intent is to capture the essence of the practice in a compact form that can be easily communicated to those who need the knowledge. Presenting this information in a coherent and accessible form can mean the difference between every new instructor needing to relearn what is known by senior faculty and easy transference of knowledge of teaching within the community.

Gilly Salmon, author of E-tivities: The Key to Active Online Learning, which is being updated in a second edition, talks with MOOC News and Reviews about how online education has changed since the book was first published eleven years ago.
Online learning tools are revolutionizing higher education, and universities across the nation are facing pressure to decide if and how they will join the movement, according to for-profit online education company Coursera co-founder Daphne Koller. Introducing online courses could showcase Dartmouth’s educational offerings and improve students’ traditional learning experiences, according to Joshua Kim, director of learning and technology for the Master of Health Care Delivery Science Program. Advances in information technology could help Dartmouth reach a global audience, increase faculty and student engagement, provide feedback about student learning methods and introduce new modes of collaboration, according to College President-elect Philip Hanlon ’77, who sits on Coursera’s advisory board. When considering how to implement new online technologies, administrators must reflect on the College’s institutional goals, which include providing an intimate education experience, Kim said. “We’re somewhat different, so it’s really appropriate for Dartmouth to think hard about how we want to participate in this larger education movement,” he said. The College is approaching the trend cautiously, according to classics professor Roger Ulrich, a member of a newly formed committee organized by the Provost’s Office to examine opportunities for online learning at Dartmouth. The College considers itself a “high-touch” learning environment, and values student-faculty interaction, Ulrich said. Administrators aim to use technology to enhance classroom experiences. Hanlon said that information technology has the potential to improve the College’s undergraduate offerings. “I don’t view them as backing away from the kind of great education Dartmouth has always offered — I view it as enhancing that,” Hanlon said. MOOCs, or massive open online courses, provide a new format for learning and allow universities to reach audiences much larger than traditionally possible, according to Kim. Brown University, Columbia University and the University of Pennsylvania have partnered with Coursera, while Harvard University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology created an online education partnership known as edX.

"Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) have captured the headlines in higher education in the past year. These new platforms were developed to enable both open access and large scale participation in online courses. Many top tier universities are joining the MOOCs bandwagon, afraid of missing an important piece of the Web-based phenomenon. It is our goal as educators to assess whether or not they can become a best practice in online learning."
