Core elements of an Open Course

Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) are more than filmed lectures or static e-learning resources. They make use of online video in new ways and combine it with interactive elements as well as a social layer that encourages peer-to-peer learning.

Video

Online video instruction is the core of open course teaching. These videos break down the content of an hour-long lecture into individual concepts that can be explained in short videos that are just a few minutes long.

Feedback

Answering a few multiple-choice questions allows students to check for themselves whether they grasped the key concepts. Such interactive elements keep students engaged, ensure that they stay on track from week to week and provide immediate feedback to the instructor.

P2P

Students can post, browse and respond to other students’ questions in the context of a student forum. They can upvote questions and answers that they found particularly helpful so that the best content bubbles to the top.
