Instructional quality of Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) | Anoush Margaryan, Manuela Bianco, Allison Littlejohn - Computers & Education

Abstract: We present an analysis of instructional design quality of 76 randomly selected Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs). The quality of MOOCs was determined from first principles of instruction, using a course survey instrument. Two types of MOOCs (xMOOCs and cMOOCs) were analysed and their instructional design quality was assessed and compared. We found that the majority of MOOCs scored poorly on most instructional design principles. However, most MOOCs scored highly on organisation and presentation of course material. The results indicate that although most MOOCs are well-packaged, their instructional design quality is low. We outline implications for practice and ideas for future research.

More of this kind of research is needed, although this article seems to follow the prevalent kind of thinking that groups different kind of learning activities which have chosen the #MOOC format into one genre, as if there was a genuine type. This does not appear to hold up to scrutiny. The finding that these MOOC formatted courses do not largely comply with the "instructional design principles" of e-learning but do excel in "organisation and presentation" instead, once combined with the fact that millions of learners flock to these very MOOC but could care less about conventional e-learning formats, leads one to reflect on the usefulness of said principles as analytical/evaluation tools and their scope as indicators of learning outcomes.

I disagree with the premise, as does the author, that post-secondary education is a waste. I do agree, however, that there needs to be affordable alternatives in higher ed, including vocational tech training, that focus on problem solving, critical thinking skills, and skill transfer.
