The Quality of Massive Open Online Courses

The primary criticism of what I will address in this chapter is that success is process-defined rather than outcomes-defined.[1] Without outcomes measurement we cannot measure success, we can’t focus our efforts toward that success, we can’t become more competitive and efficient, we can’t plan for change and improvement, and we can’t define what you want to accomplish as a result. All this is true, and yet there is no measure of outcome or success that can be derived from designer and user motivations, or even from the uses to which MOOCs are put. The only alternative is to identify what a successful MOOC ought to produce as output, without reference to existing (and frankly, very preliminary and very variable) usage.

The demand for higher education in the world far outweighs the availability of places in established universities. That is clear from studies and statistics from organisations like UNESCO, OECD and Commonwealth of learning. Low cost or even free online learning using freely available open educational resources and based largely on student-centered collaborative learning or self-study offers a feasible model for offering higher education to all.

Att ta något som finns till för allmänheten och hävda copyright, patent eller varumärkesskydd är en av de allra värsta formerna av stöld

Open as in commons, not garden | Harold Jarche

Open as in commons, not garden | Harold Jarche | Web 2.0 och högre utbildning | Scoop.it

We are going through another transition of the web and I have no intention of leaving the whole thing to a few corporate interests. This site [wordpress.org] will remain ad free and open access, not residing on some commercial third-party hosted platform. It’s a very small thing I can do.

Lars-Erik Jonsson's insight:

Förr eller senare kommer vi nog att ställas inför de frågor som Jarche brottas med här. Kan vara bra att vara lite förberedd, kanske? Man bör nog vara medveten om att "if you’re not paying for it, you are the product".

The Net in Higher Education: Frihet att lära

The Net in Higher Education: Frihet att lära | Web 2.0 och högre utbildning | Scoop.it

Med kännedom om  olika begrepp tror jag mig ha kommit fram till en sorts syntes: det handlar om ifall man riktar fokus inåt eller utåt. Låt mig förklara! Att "kollaborera" med en specifik grupp människor om ett specifikt projekt handlar om att rikta fokus inåt. Att utgå från vad som är av intresse för individen (mig själv t.ex.) vid ett visst tillfälle och därvid vända sig till ett nätverk som kan tillfredsställa detta intresse handlar om att söka sig utåt.

I will turn to Stephen Downes, more specifically his engagement for free learning. At the moment I am working my way through his book "Free Learning" which can be freely downloaded from his website. What I have done, Downes explains, with my license is to express what I want and how I want my content to be treated. When people disrespect my wishes, I will have nothing to do with them. I will not trust them.
