Straining the Quality of MOOCs: Student Retention and Intention | Open Education | HYBRID PEDAGOGY

Straining the Quality of MOOCs: Student Retention and Intention | Open Education | HYBRID PEDAGOGY | Pedagogy and technology of online learning | Scoop.it

It’s the first thing in the name. MOOCs are primarily massive. They reach huge numbers of students. “Graduating even 5 percent of 100,000 students in a MOOC provides many instructors with substantially greater reach than an entire lifetime of teaching in a conventional classroom.” Educause’s “What Campus Leaders Need to Know about MOOCs” starts with scale: “MOOCs (massive open online courses) are courses delivered over the web to potentially thousands of students at a time.”


Via Hybrid Pedagogy
diane gusa's insight:

With lack of participant $$$ investment, is the attrition rate a reflection of lack of financial investment or  lack of pedagogy to build engagement? To be fair, massive teaching is new and best practices in this field need to be developed.

MOOCs, Courseware, and the Course as an Artifact -

MOOCs, Courseware, and the Course as an Artifact - | Pedagogy and technology of online learning | Scoop.it

The obvious conclusion is that MOOCs are more of a threat to textbook companies than they are to universities. I think that’s true, but I also think it’s an oversimplification. There is a deeper (and older) trend to boil down a course into a set of digital artifacts that can be “played” by the student at will. It’s worth taking a deeper look at that trend, where it’s going, what’s useful about it, and what’s pernicious about it.

Really interesting read:

Up to which level can we compare the role of MOOCs with the role of books in flipped classroom settings?

And what does it ask from future MOOC design?
