... Other proposed changes include modernisation and simplification of educational exceptions, so that minor acts of copying for teaching purposes - such as copying an extract of text onto an interactive whiteboard - will be permitted without a licence. Quotation and minor use of copyrighted works for reporting purposes on internet blogs or in tweets will be allowed as long as they are fair, and sound recordings, films and broadcasts will be able to be copied for non-commercial research and private study purposes without permission from the copyright holder. Public bodies will also have greater freedom to share third party information online. ...

MOOCS, Online Learning, and the Wrong Conversation

MOOCS, Online Learning, and the Wrong Conversation | The Academy for self-Learners | Scoop.it

"The fact that MOOCS and online courses have sparked new conversations on your campus about teaching and learning is a terrific development. We should be grateful whenever attention is paid to teaching. The problem is that neither MOOCS or online courses are, in themselves, a strategy to meet the challenges we all face in higher ed. MOOCS and online courses are a means, not an end, and should be understood as such. The real conversation that you should be having on campus is about your institutions' goals around teaching and learning."

I agree: "MOOCS and online courses are a means, not an end"

Danielle M. Villegas's curator insight, January 4, 2013 9:57 AM

This is definitely an important conversation to have in the correct way. I've been the recipient of an online education through a MOOC used effectively. Just like any course going from classroom to online, or for that matter going from e-learning to m-learning, careful thought has to be done to ensure that content is not lost, and that an essential part of learning--interaction--is included. It's a different dynamic than in a classroom, thus how a MOOC is used should be planned out accordingly.
