Five myths about Moocs | Diana Laurillard

Five myths about Moocs | Diana Laurillard | Social ELearning | Scoop.it

Diana Laurillard explains why a model based on unsupervised learning is not the answer. 

 "Free online courses that require no prior qualifications or fee are a wonderful idea but are not viable. …  Moocs are depicted as a disruptive technology because they involve no ongoing teaching expenses and cost the same to run no matter how many students enrol. But the idea that “content is free” in education is one of several myths that have helped to inflate the bubble of hype. … Another myth is that students can support each other. … Nor will Moocs solve the problem of expensive undergraduate education or educational scarcity in emerging economies. This is just a cruel myth. … [Finally], education is not a mass customer industry: it is a personal client industry."

Peter B. Sloep's curator insight, February 11, 2014 5:09 PM

Although already a month old, this article  is still worth a scoop as it addresses a number of myths, as Diana Laurillard calls them, about MOOCs. Of course, this criticism is not to be taken as an outright dismissal of MOOCs. First of all, MOOCs come in different kinds and the criticisms apply in differing degrees to the different kinds. Second, if there is value in MOOCs, one cannot expect to get everything right in the first instance. So MOOCs should be allowed time and room to evolve. But why then the fuzz about them  in the first place, one might ask.  Because, as I have argued elsewhere too, they have been able to shake up academia as we know it. Since academia's cherished and customary way of teaching is under siege, or so it seems, it now feels a pressing need to make improvements. Nothing wrong with that, as long as you don’t think that the grass in the MOOC field is greener than everywhere else.

The new learning experiences

Sue Gaardboe's curator insight, February 13, 2014 2:20 AM

If you can do it with paper why use a digital alternative? Because for some of students, it makes the difference between engagement and being switched off.  Of couse finding the activities that you just can't do with paper...that's the real power of a digital solution.

Jennifer Turner's curator insight, February 24, 2014 1:40 PM

Don't be afraid of social media when you can learn how to use it in your classroom.  This reasource is a great find for educators that may want to use social media but just do not know where to incorporate it.
