Open Online Courses Don’t Have to be Rube Goldberg Machines

Open Online Courses Don’t Have to be Rube Goldberg Machines | The Mixing Panel | Scoop.it
Earlier this year, Instructure published a report about course design complexity and depth. The data showed that courses in Canvas are trending toward a simple but deep design strategy. Simple courses use a minimalist approach to course navigational structure and content organization, so students know where to go and what to do in the course. Depth refers to the manner in which Canvas features tools are utilized, ideally in a consistent manner throughout and for the duration of the course.

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.

ғelιх c ѕeyғarтн's curator insight, November 19, 2014 8:37 AM
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.

Questions to Ask Oneself While Designing Learning Activities ^ User Generated Education ^ by Jackie Gerstein | The Mixing Panel | Scoop.it

"I absolutely love planning lessons from scratch.  I just got a job teaching technology units for a summer camp for elementary age students. I can design and teach whatever I want – planning for a different theme each week. Some of the themes I am planning are: Expanding and Showing Your Personal Interests Through Blogging, Photos, and Videos; Coding and Creating Online Games; Tinkering and Making – Simple Robotics; Hacking Your Notebook; and Creating Online Comics, Newspapers, and Magazines.  I have begun the process of planning these classes through reflecting on what the lessons will look like.  Here are some questions I ask myself as I go through this process:"
