The Golden Age of MOOCs is over and Why I hate Coursera

From Instructivism to Connectivism: Theoretical Underpinnings of MOOCs

While the first MOOCs were connectivist in their approach to learning, later versions have expanded to include instructivist structures and structures that blend both theories. From an instructional design standpoint the differences are important. This paper will examine how to analyze the goals of any proposed MOOC to determine what the epistemological focus should be. This will lead to a discussion of types of communication needed—based on analysis of power dynamics—to design accurately within the determined epistemology. The paper also explores later stages of design related to proper communication of the intended power structure or theoretical design as these relate to various activities and expectations in the MOOC.

verstelle's curator insight, June 5, 5:38 AM
"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."
