Harvard U. Will Offer Exclusive MOOCs to Alumni – Wired Campus - Blogs - The Chronicle of Higher Education | Open and online learning | Scoop.it

verstelle's insight:

The university plans to make some MOOC materials available exclusively to alumni, in an effort to help Harvard graduates reconnect with the university and one another. The program, called HarvardX for Alumni and first reported in The Harvard Crimson, might also include opportunities to interact directly with professors, a rare privilege in an open online course.

 

Beginning in March, HarvardX for Alumni will offer versions of seven Harvard MOOCs exclusively to graduates of the university. The courses will not be full-length MOOCs but “segments” that include some new material developed specially for graduates, according to Michael Rutter, a spokesman. Some professors might even travel to talk about the material at Harvard Clubs in different cities, Mr. Rutter said.

Je kon er op wachten. MOOCs als extra service voor alumni. Een nieuwe grens aan de eerste 'O', met mogelijk gevolgen voor de 'M'. Al heeft Harvard natuurlijk heel wat alumni.
Robert Schuwer's curator insight, February 11, 2014 10:39 AM

Let's call it online courses instead of MOOC. The first "O" can be skipped.

Studenten het minst tevreden met blended learning, al zegt dat niets over de effectiviteit | WilfredRubens.com over leren en ICT | Open and online learning | Scoop.it
Volgens een grootschalig onderzoek onder Amerikaanse studenten, blijkt dat deze doelgroep minder geëngageerd is bij blended learning dan bij face-to-face of volledig online leren. Toch zijn deze studenten zeker niet ontevreden. Bovendien is er een verschil tussen tevredenheid en effectiviteit.

A Systematic Analysis and Synthesis of the Empirical MOOC Literature Published in 2013–2015

A Systematic Analysis and Synthesis of the Empirical MOOC Literature Published in 2013–2015 | Open and online learning | Scoop.it

...The goal of this paper is to address a number of gaps in the scholarly understanding of MOOCs and present a comprehensive picture of the literature by examining the geographic distribution, publication outlets, citations, data collection and analysis methods, and research strands of empirical research focusing on MOOCs. We tackle this goal by reviewing relevant literature and situating this study in the context of prior literature; presenting our research questions and describing the methods used to collect data; describing the data analysis methods used to answer each research question; and presenting our results. We conclude by discussing findings and making recommendations for researchers studying MOOC-related topics.
