MOOCs and Open Education Around the World

MOOCs and Open Education Around the World | Opening up education | Scoop.it
As new digital forms of formal and informal learning proliferate, there is an increasing need to better understand how people in different regions of the world are implementing massive open online courses (MOOCs) and other forms of open educational resources (OERs). Educators, researchers, politicians, and numerous other stakeholders want to grasp what the outcomes of these initiatives are and how they can be improved. Ongoing e-learning developments related to both technology and pedagogy have pushed institutions and organizations to grapple with issues of accreditation, credentialing, quality standards, innovative assessment, and learner motivation and attrition, among other areas of concern. In response, MOOCs and Open Education Around the World explores and illuminates unique implementations of MOOCs and open education across regions and nations. The book also focuses on the various opportunities as well as the dilemmas presented in this rapidly evolving age of technology-enabled learning. What are the different delivery formats, interaction possibilities, assessment schemes, and business models? What are the key controversies or issues that must be discussed and addressed? This edited collection explains MOOCs and open education trends and issues in a variety of contexts, shares key research findings, and provides practical suggestions and recommendations for the near future.
Robert Schuwer's insight:

A collection of papers on MOOC's, ranging from general perspectives, quality, design and a glimpse to the future. The book is in part free accessible through this link, but is not freely available.

great final quote: “We’re like Columbus or Vasco de Gama,” Regina Herzlinger reflects. “We’re just starting to learn how to make this effective.”

Robert Schuwer's insight:

Boiling down open education to just MOOCs and open to just free access. Furthermore, in their view open education can only be offered by institutions ("institutional practices"). Why not just call it Pros and Cons of MOOCs?
