Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) are not for everyone, but everyone can benefit from them if willing to keep an open mind. Stop overanalyzing revolutionary ideas within education and stop searching for the “magic bullet.”

New e-Literate TV Series on MOOCs - e-Literate | Taking a look at MOOCs | Scoop.it

Greenwich Connect's curator insight, April 28, 2014 5:39 AM

Are we really in a "trough of disillusionment" with MOOCs? Yes we are starting to learn what works, what doesn't work, which areas need to be improved, developing pedagogical approaches, etc. But despite their current shortcomings we still sense a feeling of optimism around MOOCs, and excitement for what they may become. This is different to the hyped up "peak of inflated expectations" - mass hysteria about unprecedented access to higher education, hundreds of thousands of students and superstar professors. It is more of a cautious but solid enthusiasm, combined with a committed rolling up of sleeves - a determination to explore and experiment with open online learning in a variety of forms. This, rather than disillusionment, is what we see in this series of videos from e-Literate TV. Well worth a watch.

Three interesting videos so far in this TV series. Of special interest is the second one, consisting of a debate between an enthusiast and a skeptic.

Manuel León Urrutia's curator insight, April 23, 2014 10:32 AM

Some insights of Professor Michelle Moravec on things to consider when producing a MOOC. Two to be highlighted: 1. think about the weekly time needed in order to complete the MOOC, as we sometimes underestimate it. 2. Create skimmable content if you want to keep learners interested.
