Donald Clark Plan B: MOOCs: taxonomy of 8 types of MOOC | Online Networked Learning | Scoop.it

"What’s important here is that we see MOOCs as informing the debate around learning to get over the obvious problems of relevance, access and cost. This is by no means a definitive taxonomy but it’s a start. I’d really appreciate any comments, critiques or new categories."

Selected by www.CogBooks.com - the leader in adaptive learning for critical needs - from Donald Clark's Plan B blog.

Ana Cristina Pratas's curator insight, April 25, 2013 2:49 PM

The digitization of academic research has followed a pattern similar to consumer electronics, beginning with large, clunky devices and database machines filling entire rooms and evolving to Web-based software. The first breakthrough came when the first desktop scientific calculator was released by Hewlett-Packard in 1968 and subsequently popularized by Texas Instruments as a handheld device in the 1970s. Also in the late 1960s -- the heyday for mainframe computing -- a software program called SPSS emerged that allowed corporations and academic researchers to do complex data analysis.

All of these tools are helpful for crunching data once you have it, but it has taken a while to close the loop on digitizing the research process. In the last decade, new technology has improved the way we actually collect information, as well. In my field of study (organizational behavior), our research focuses on people. We survey them, observe them and put them through controlled experiments to gauge perceptions, attitudes, behaviors and other insights about what "makes us tick" and how we work together.

Missing Perspectives on MOOCs -- Views from developing countries

Missing Perspectives on MOOCs -- Views from developing countries | Online Networked Learning | Scoop.it

Ana Cristina Pratas's curator insight, April 20, 2013 1:47 AM

One specific type of developing country perspective is being heard, and indeed prominently described (usually by anecdote by people in North America): that of a student in a developing country (Pakistan, for example, or Indonesia) who participates in a MOOC, gaining exposure to learning opportunities and connections with other learners around the world in ways (presumably) not otherwise available to her. While anecdotes of this sort have a special place and established history in the selling of new technologies and technology-enabled products and services, this doesn't mean that they don't offer real and tangible examples of how the life of an individual can be impacted in a positive, potentially transformative way as a result of interactions enabled by technologies in ways that are new and innovative.

Some interesting insights shared by Catherine here as she used twitter and g+ in her learning design. I especially enjoyed the comments by students.  The need for a new set of literacies is very clear - both for the educator and his/her students.

Another great presentation by Catherine on Digital Literacies here:http://www.slideshare.net/cicronin/enacting-digital-identities

Vance Stevens's curator insight, April 27, 2013 6:08 AM

This is a useful comparison of cMOOC and xMOOC, with observations like: "xMOOCs are much easier compared to cMOOCs.  This is grounded on that in xMOOCs, the instructors would have done most, if not all of the ground work necessary for teaching and learning for the learners.  What the learners are normally expected to do would be to consume the knowledge transmitted or broadcasted to them, and to confirm their understanding of the concepts through repeated quizzes or assignments." This is antithetical to how Siemens characterizes cMOOC here: http://goodbyegutenberg.pbworks.com/w/page/61341664/Getting_Started_2013evo

Smithstorian's curator insight, April 22, 2013 5:29 PM

I learned many fascinating things while taking a series of free online college courses over the last few months. In my history class, I learned there was a Japanese political plot to assassinate Charlie Chaplin in 1932. In my genetics class, I learned that the ability to wiggle our ears is a holdover from animal ancestors who could shift the direction of their hearing organs.


But the first thing I learned? When it comes to Massive Open Online Courses, like those offered byCoursera, Udacity and edX, you can forget about the Socratic method.

Strange paradox - MOOC professors the least and most assessible teachers in history.

This opinion piece reflects one person's experience of several MOOC's - interesting grading nonetheless.

European MOOCs

European MOOCs | Online Networked Learning | Scoop.it

Partners in 11 countries have joined forces to launch the first pan-European ‘MOOCs’ (Massive Open Online Courses) initiative, with the support of the European Commission. MOOCs are online university courses which enable people to access quality education without having to leave their homes. Around 40 courses, covering a wide variety of subjects, will be available free of charge and in 12 different languages. The initiative is led by the European Association of Distance Teaching Universities (EADTU) and mostly involves open universities. The partners are based in the following countries: France, Italy, Lithuania, the Netherlands, Portugal, Slovakia, Spain, UK, Russia, Turkey and Israel. Detailed information about the initiative and the courses on offer is available on the portal www.OpenupEd.eu.
