Robert Schuwer's insight:

Not too surprising the findings in this blog. This again is evidence that localizing open content is necessary to have an optimal learning experience and that localizing goes beyond "just" subtitling. Also pedagogy needs adaptation. This raises the question if MOOC's as building blocks for reuse and rework (if permitted) are too big. And raising the question is answering it....

Flipping a classroom enhances student and faculty experience.
Robert Schuwer's insight:

That flipping using your own MOOC has advantages seems clear. This article support this and shows some of the advantages. The big question is if flipping using the MOOC of another institution give the same advantages.

Instructional quality of Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) | Anoush Margaryan, Manuela Bianco, Allison Littlejohn - Computers & Education

Abstract: We present an analysis of instructional design quality of 76 randomly selected Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs). The quality of MOOCs was determined from first principles of instruction, using a course survey instrument. Two types of MOOCs (xMOOCs and cMOOCs) were analysed and their instructional design quality was assessed and compared. We found that the majority of MOOCs scored poorly on most instructional design principles. However, most MOOCs scored highly on organisation and presentation of course material. The results indicate that although most MOOCs are well-packaged, their instructional design quality is low. We outline implications for practice and ideas for future research.

ғelιх c ѕeyғarтн's curator insight, November 19, 8:37 AM
More of this kind of research is needed, although this article seems to follow the prevalent kind of thinking that groups different kind of learning activities which have chosen the #MOOC format into one genre, as if there was a genuine type. This does not appear to hold up to scrutiny. The finding that these MOOC formatted courses do not largely comply with the "instructional design principles" of e-learning but do excel in "organisation and presentation" instead, once combined with the fact that millions of learners flock to these very MOOC but could care less about conventional e-learning formats, leads one to reflect on the usefulness of said principles as analytical/evaluation tools and their scope as indicators of learning outcomes.

"MOOC" steht für Massive Open Online Course und sie fordern das traditionelle Universitätsmodell aus Anwesenheitspflicht und festem Lehrplan heraus.
Robert Schuwer's insight:

To have your ECTS of a MOOC recognized in a formal program offered by a university in Europe, is at the end of the day a decision and responsibility of the university that has to decide about this recognition. ECTS offers a framework that give (or at least it should) some guarantees about quality and study time of the course that could make this decision about recognition easier compared with courses that do not have certificates based on this framework. But ECTS does not guarantee recognition in an accreditation based curriculum because of the awarding power of universities.
