Professor Leaves a MOOC in Mid-Course in Dispute Over Teaching - Wired Campus - The Chronicle of Higher Education

Professor Leaves a MOOC in Mid-Course in Dispute Over Teaching - Wired Campus - The Chronicle of Higher Education | The MOOC Agenda | Scoop.it
Michael Keibler's insight:

This brings to question then, what type of teaching method is the right kind of method for MOOC's?  Is a student-centered or a teacher-centered pedagogy or even a hybrid of the two the shoe that fits all courses?  With such high attrition rates in MOOCs I am left wondering if research has been done to see if there is a correlation between the two.  I am sorry to hear that this has happened but I think it is a part of the emerging MOOC into our education system.

The Cavalier Daily :: A MOOC misstep

The Cavalier Daily :: A MOOC misstep | The MOOC Agenda | Scoop.it

The MOOC has enjoyed a meteoric rise. Its popularity ballooned rapidly: Coursera hit 1 million users in August 2012, less than four months after it launched. The MOOC has also drawn unusual hype. Some herald online learning as a revolution that will upend — and democratize — the higher-education landscape.

 

During the weekend, however, the MOOC displayed some growing pains. Coursera was forced to suspend a course after students complained about technical glitches and confusing instructions. The name of the course? “Fundamentals of Online Education: Planning and Application.” The class cancellation marked a meta-MOOC mess.
