Guidelines for Quality Assurance and Accreditation of MOOCs

Guidelines for Quality Assurance and Accreditation of MOOCs | Taking a look at MOOCs | Scoop.it
Massive open online courses (MOOCs) have emerged as an educational innovation with the potential to increase access to and improve the quality of education. Different stakeholders in education view MOOCs from different perspectives. However, there are common questions related to the quality of these courses and to the granting of equivalent credits. This document provides a set of guidelines designed to support decision making about the sorts of quality measures that are appropriate in different contexts. These MOOC Quality Guidelines can be used by governments, accreditation agencies, institutions and learners with an interest in developing, running, accrediting or participating in MOOCs, to improve quality assurance (QA) and accreditation.

Universal Instructional Design Principles: Usability, Accessibility, Evidence In Moodle vs MOOCs

Universal Instructional Design Principles: Usability, Accessibility, Evidence In Moodle vs MOOCs | Taking a look at MOOCs | Scoop.it
Are MOOCs really open? We have witness its rise in past years. We have also been witness of the wave of backlash in many of its aspects. Content, engagement, completion rates and churning in particular. These issues cannot move forward without actual empirical research.

An article from the recent release of the Proceedings from the 2016 Conference of the Human Computer Interaction (HCI) Society of Korea, that took place last January, brings new evidence to the table. From a Universal Design for Learning (UDL) standpoint, it evaluates popular MOOC platforms (Coursera, edX and Khan) to find barriers to openness.

Design Principles as measuring stick in online education is not a new concern. A 2010 research paper by Tanya Elias, published in Athabasca University’s The International Review of Research in Open and Distributed Learning, formulated a set of guidelines to apply Universal Instructional Design (UID) principles in Moodle.
