INNOQUAL - International Journal for Innovation and Quality in Learning, Volume 2, No 3, 2014 and Special Issue on Quality in Massive Open Online Courses

Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) are an example of a disruptive technology and are clearly innovative in terms of scale and the level of heated discussion around whether or not they are innovative pedagogically. Academic and mainstream press covering the phenomenon is divided as to whether MOOCs will be valuable to hundreds or thousands of participants. Within this editorial we give a short introduction to the topic of the special issue “Quality in MOOCs” as well as to the contributions, along with the papers related to the INNOQUAL journal’s permanent themes.

Week 10: Quality and the eye of the MOOC beholder: Perspectives from the OERu on mOOCs and micro-credentials by Wayne Mackintosh

Week 10: Quality and the eye of the MOOC beholder: Perspectives from the OERu on mOOCs and micro-credentials by Wayne Mackintosh | Quality assurance of eLearning | Scoop.it

As an open educator, in the past I have suggested that it is better to have a poor quality resource which is open than a high quality resource which is closed. Similarly, in open teaching, it is better to encourage and embrace ongoing experimentation with the formats associated with the cMOOC pioneers than constrain future innovation in learning to the confines of conventional quality standards.

EFQUEL MOOC on e-learning quality | EFQUEL | Quality assurance of eLearning | Scoop.it

We’re currently working with several partners to design and run an open online course aimed at creating a better understanding of quality in e-learning. As part of this process EFQUEL facilitated a workshop 16 July at our new Brussels office. The workshop’s aims were to agree on course content, learning objectives, learning activities as well as assigning roles and creating an action plan. The development of this course is in collaboration with partners in the following projects: OEI (Open Educational Ideas), EMMA (European Multi Mooc Aggregator), SEQUENT and HoTEL (HOlistic approach to Technology Enhanced Learning). In line with our open philosophy all course development is freely shared and we welcome external contributions. You can contribute to the initiative by adding your suggestions in this document. - See more at: http://efquel.org/efquel-mooc-on-e-learning-quality/#sthash.TBZUeNEs.sq5ceom5.dpuf

REFLECTIONS ON THE ANNUAL EFQUEL INNOVATION FORUM 2013, BARCELONA 25-27 SEPTEMER 2013

 The  EFQUEL Innovation Forum 2013  was held this year at the Open University of Catalonia in Barcelona 26-27 September 2013. The conference theme Refocusing Quality of e-learning attracted more participants than ever and from many continents. The conference was a great success and being in the programme committe it was a nice and busy time both in the planning process and during the conference. I was also happy to be elected to the board of EFQUEL and I am  looking forward to be even more involved. I also did some disseminatiion on social media during the conference.

The corridor of uncertainty: Integrating the e- into learning - EFQUEL Innovation Forum 2013

The corridor of uncertainty: Integrating the e- into learning - EFQUEL Innovation Forum 2013 | Quality assurance of eLearning | Scoop.it

We are at last moving from a divided view of quality in education (traditional/e-learning) to a single concept of learning and teaching. Representatives of the major European higher education organisations ENQA, EUA, EURASHE and ESUwere all active contributors and ready to start a common discussion about how the area of e-learning quality can be integrated into traditional quality assurance criteria for higher education. This feels like a major breakthrough and hopefully specialist e-learning quality organisations will be able to contribute actively to the development of mainstream quality assurance in higher education.

There is a great deal of energy, enthusiasm, and change happening in today’s education sector. Existing and new education providers are leveraging the Internet, ICT infrastructure, digital content, open licensing, social networking, and interaction to create new forms of education. Open Educational Resources (OER) (including open textbooks), Open Access, and Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) have all gained traction as significant drivers of education innovation. -
