MOOC: Badges as New Currency for Professional

MOOC: Badges as New Currency for Professional | Taking a look at MOOCs | Scoop.it

“We believe that badges offer a promising approach to addressing a vexing challenge – getting under and un-employed Americans into high-paying, unfilled jobs,” said Anne Derryberry, one of the course designers and facilitators.

 

The WICHE Cooperative for Education Technologies (WCET) has announced that they will co-host a massive open online course (MOOC) to examine the growing interest in using badges to document knowledge, skills and competencies when working toward attaining high value professional credentials. Sage Road Solutions LLC, Mozilla, Blackboard Inc., and WCET have collaborated to produce a 6-week shared learning experience that will be offered via Blackboard’s MOOC platform. The MOOC will broaden understandings about approaches to earning high value credentials that benefit institutions, content providers, employers and individuals alike.

 

The “Badges as New Currency for Credentials” MOOC begins on September 9 and concludes October 14, 2013. It will feature a weekly live session Mondays at 2PM ET for the duration of the course. To register for this free, open course, please visithttps://badges.coursesites.com/.

Stanford president offers predictions on a more digital future for higher education @insidehighered

Stanford president offers predictions on a more digital future for higher education @insidehighered | Taking a look at MOOCs | Scoop.it
Sue Beckingham's insight:

"Hennessy advocated for hybrid courses -- based on a relatively small set of top-quality digital lectures, enhanced by simulations. He said he believed not in MOOCs, but in LSOCs, or large selective online courses.

He said, for instance, that introductory courses could be "more compelling" if the best instructors produce courses, and they are enhanced and distributed, with on-campus faculty members acting as in-class coaches, leading group exercises, offering extra help to those who are struggling, and so forth. He said that research already demonstrates that high-quality hybrid courses can improve student learning."
