The summary of this article is that the best way to teach something is to tell a story about it.  This is because the brain is designed around stories. -Lon

Are MOOCs in danger of becoming irrelevant?

Are MOOCs in danger of becoming irrelevant? | Open and online learning | Scoop.it
As MOOCs and online courses retreat into vocational education, Jonathon Keats calls for a more expansive revival of online learning

Via Robert Schuwer
verstelle's insight:
"There's nothing dishonourable about making job training more accessible, but the rapid retreat of MOOCs into vocational banality..." is a risk. 

Goal should be "...to interest people in everything, so that they could grapple with complexly interconnected global problems. [...] And the technology underlying MOOCs - as well as their reach - provides a solid platform for broadening people's interests. MOOCs need to be linked across disciplines, with recommendation engines like those employed by Netflix and YouTube to entice students to compulsively take up new interests. Completion rates need to be de-emphasised in favour of curiosity quotients."

This virtual lab will revolutionize science class | Open and online learning | Scoop.it
Virtual reality is no longer part of some distant future, and it's not just for gaming and entertainment anymore. Michael Bodekaer wants to use it to make quality education more accessible.
verstelle's insight:

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.

... Denial is another factor in faculty opposition. In a recent debate at my business school on disruption theory and its application to higher education, a faculty colleague stated flatly, “MOOCS have failed.” He was perhaps thinking of some reports of low completion rates for Massive Open Online Classes (MOOCs). But in fact they are doing quite well...
