DOAB: Directory of Open Access Books

The primary aim of DOAB is to increase discoverability of Open Access books. Academic publishers are invited to provide metadata of their Open Access books to DOAB. Metadata will be harvestable in order to maximize dissemination, visibility and impact. Aggregators can integrate the records in their commercial services and libraries can integrate the directory into their online catalogues, helping scholars and students to discover the books. The directory will be open to all publishers who publish academic, peer reviewed books in Open Access and should contain as many books as possible, provided that these publications are in Open Access and meet academic standards.

The purpose of this handbook is to help you use, create, and share "open educational resources" (OER). Digital technologies, combined with the enablers of our networked society, provide teachers, lecturers and trainers with new and exciting opportunities to rediscover and implement a core value of education, namely to share knowledge freely.

Stanford teams up with edX | Ry Rivard - Inside Higher Ed

Stanford teams up with edX | Ry Rivard - Inside Higher Ed | OER | Scoop.it

Stanford University, the epicenter of the modern massive open online course movement, said this week that it will develop online learning software with the only one of the three MOOC providers not founded by a Stanford faculty member. … Mitchell  [Stanford's vice provost] said the university’s “initial interest” in the edX software is so Stanford can offer material to current students on its campus or to students who take Stanford classes for credit online. … "I  expect that we ourselves or other partners will offer the edX platform in a software-as-a-service model,” he  [Agarwal, the edX president] said. In other words, universities would pay if they or their faculty wanted to use edX’s software.

Peter B. Sloep's curator insight, April 3, 2013 5:37 AM

This is all about business models, about how the large sums of money can be recouped that are being pumped into developing platforms for MOOCs and in creating the courses that these platforms run. It seems that two approaches are emerging. The first one is attempted by Coursera and Udacity, which follow a traditional closed-source model for their platforms. Course developers who want to offer their MOOCs through these platforms pay in terms of a share of the future revenue (see also http://sco.lt/7IoKZN). This is the Apple iTunes model, as I argued earlier in a blog of mine http://tiny.cc/ralyuw). The other way is followed by edX and now Stanford (the university, in contrast with the for profit companies Coursera and Udacity that are run by Stanford professors or ex-professors). The source code is open for any one to use, revenue streams are generated by offering services around the code (installation, fine-tuning, additional plug-ins, etc). 

 

This model allows the MOOC-providing university much more freedom, it is the model Stanford now has decided to favour. Crucially, even though the software that drives edX's and the future Stanford MOOCs, is open for other universities to use - after all that is what 'open' here means, they do not become part of the edX family of MOOCs or the planned Stanford family of MOOCs. Ultimately, therefore, the move to open source the platform code by Stanford and Harvard is mainly a means to avoid diluting their brand by associating it with a mere platform provider (to wit, Coursera or Udacity).

Group work advice for MOOC providers - by George Siemens

Group work advice for MOOC providers - by George Siemens | OER | Scoop.it

From the website

 

"The most valuable aspect of MOOCs is that the large number of learners enables the formation of sub-networks based on interested, geography, language, or some other attribute that draws individuals together. With 20 students in a class, limited options exist for forming sub-networks. When you have 5,000 students, new configurations are possible.

 

"The “new pedagogical models” (A Silicon Valley term meaning: we didn’t read the literature and still don’t realize that these findings are two, three, or more decades old) being discovered by MOOC providers supports what most academics and experienced teachers know about learning: it’s a social, active, and participatory process.

 

"The current MOOC providers have adopted a regressive pedagogy: small scale learning chunks reminiscent of the the heady days of cognitivism and military training. Ah, the 1960′s. What a great time to be a learner.

In order to move past this small chunk model of learning, MOOC providers will need to include problem based learning and group learning in their offerings. That won’t be easy. MOOCs have high dropout rates. Which means that if you’re assigned to a group of 10 learners, by the end of the course, you’ll be the only one left.

 

"The large MOOCs can improve the quality of learning by creating a model for rapid creation/dissolution of groups. If you have teenagers in your house (or if you are a gamer), you’re likely familiar with how groups form in many video games or virtual worlds. There are two extreme opposites: World of Warcraft involves highly cohesive social units where individuals spend long periods of time together in solving problems and engaging in quests. In contrast, Call of Duty has low social cohesion as groups are formed on the spot and once a player logs off, the group dissolve (yes, you can log in and play with friends in a more cohesive unit on CoD as well). The latter model is worth considering for MOOCs."

Mark Gillingham's curator insight, March 12, 2013 3:56 PM

Thinking of using a MOOC for your students or yourself? Think about the limitations that are usual but not necessarily forced in the typical MOOC and break into groups. Although many drop out of MOOCs, many do because they didn't find a suitable group or didn't think to look for one.
