perhaps not the "ultimate" but a good short introduction

Marci Segal, MS's curator insight, May 5, 2013 8:26 AM

A good intro to MOOC's.  Next best thing in education?

Keith Wayne Brown's insight:

With the exception of the drop-ins--because universities control access to content pretty well--these numbers mirror many of the patterns I see with standard education models in large classrooms. Now, in class settings where there is less than 15 students, the lurker becomes more visible and a professor can tease the passive students into being more active.

I have been a learning technologist for 10 years and in that time I have seen at least 3 VLE silos being emptied or recycled or replaced. Change is inevitable when it comes to technology, for sure, but is this the type of change we want, especially as we interact with different learning systems as we continue our professional development.

This is an insightful post and one worth consideration as well as discussion. Why not post a comment?

Worth following up.

למי שקצת מתעניין באוצרות מתקדמת: איך משמרים תוכנות, קטעי קוד, "שיחות" שלמות ותהליכי פיתוח של משאבים לימודיים כדי לאפשר שימוש חוזר או שימוש ועיבוד מחדש. הצעה מעניינת ברוח "מרכזיות הקוד" של המתכנתים בקוד פתוח.

זה נושא מדובר מאוד כבר עשור שלם בהמשך לתנועת השימוש ב-OER (משאבי למידה פתוחים) . הכותב מציע להתיחס גם לשיח המשתמשים ולדיוים הלימודיים והמשאבים הנגזרים מאותם משאבים פתוחים כ"משאבים דיגיטליים" שיש לשמר ולאפשר לכלל הציבור לגשת אליהם ולהשתמש בהם.

Interestingly, the claim made here is that universities are starting to make money from MOOC and it's coming from validation.  Are we going to see a 'freemium' model of education becoming prolific?
