"Education aspires to bring about change; whether to change individuals and societies, or to change knowledge, attitudes, and practices. The act of devising plans of activities, resources, and tools to achieve such change is an act of learning design. This book sets out to share design knowledge about the use of technology in teaching and learning, and to explore how we might best share this design knowledge amongst educators, but also between educators, researchers, and technology developers."

Ebba Ossiannilsson's insight:

 The Kragerø Open Online Education Declaration was conceived and signed by a group of 14 Nordic experts related to the field, attending Campus NooA's workshop on online education at the Hasselholmen Island from May 28 to June 1, 2014. 

Our discussions revealed that online learning and education covers a much broader range of activities, issues and opportunities than MOOCs. Therefore, the issues and statements that were discussed during the workshop, then refined and prioritised through an online Delphi process, resulted in the following declaration:

MOOCs: Scaling Corporate Learning

While MOOCs have gained the interest and attention of higher education, they have failed to make much of an impact on corporate learning. That is starting to change. Over the past year, organizations such as Google, GE, Cisco, McAfee, Bank of America, AXA, and AT&T have started to experiment with MOOCs. Non-profits and NGOs such as Linux Foundation, WEF, OECD, Red Cross, and others have also started experimenting with large scale online learning.

In trying to get a pulse of MOOCs in corporate learning, I’ve found it difficult to get a sense of what is happening broadly with MOOCs outside of higher education. I catch press releases and partnership announcements, but the conversation is too fragmented to provide a sense of lessons being learned and various implementation model. The sharing of practices and experiences in higher education is more prominent.

To address this lack of dialogue in this space, we are organizing an online conference on MOOCs: Scaling Corporate Learning. The event is free/open and will be held June 18 & 19. Registration is now open. The schedule and speaker list will be posted later this week.

Not too surprisingly, Boston has become one of the epicenters of the next would-be education revolution: Online learning. Spearheaded by EdX, which gained backing from Harvard and MIT, the city that hosts some hundred institutions of higher education is also trying to reform it. Harman Singh, the founder and chief executive of WizIQ, shares where he sees the field stumbling.
