Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, July 13, 2013 1:17 PM

Education needs to be disrupted. It is not because we need digital technologies and its various forms of learning to replace, but because public education needs to be rejuvenated. What comes of the necessary conversation is hard to say.

MOOC Design Principles. A Pedagogical Approach from the Learner’s Perspective

MOOC Design Principles. A Pedagogical Approach from the Learner’s Perspective | The Open Classroom - Open Learningk12 | Scoop.it

The debate around Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) is much more focused on the social, institutional, technological and economical aspects than on the need for development of new pedagogical approaches that provide consistent guidance on how to design for this emergent educational scenario.

Ralph Springett's curator insight, May 13, 2013 4:16 AM

I am not sure about new pedagogical aproaches, perhaps new pedagogical frameworks, applying the existing approaches in different ways. The pedagogies, I think, will remain the same - it is about how they are applied. 

Preeti Jasnani's comment, May 13, 2013 8:18 AM
I agree with you Ralph. Pedagogies for MOOCs will more or less remain the same, but how they get applied will differ. And for this, we need to focus on the key characteristics that distinguish a MOOC learning environment from other online courses. Learner experience and learner engagement will have to be kept in mind, as we determine the characterisics of the MOOC learning environment.
