Week 2: The Quality of Massive Open Online Courses by Stephen Downes | MOOC Quality Project

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 corridor of uncertainty: Can you cheat in a MOOC?

The corridor of uncertainty: Can you cheat in a MOOC? | Web 2.0 och högre utbildning | Scoop.it

Cheating in such an environment is a bit like cheating in a hobby like bird watching. You can claim to have seen all sorts of rare species but the only way to gain real credibility is to be able to prove it, by showing photos or being able to describe in detail the distinguishing features of the bird you have seen. In bird watching it is essential that other people in the same geographical area also see the bird. You need evidence and witnesses.

The Net in Higher Education: Never sacrifice community for money!

The Net in Higher Education: Never sacrifice community for money! | Web 2.0 och högre utbildning | Scoop.it

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.

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: Lära gratis, fritt, undervisad eller vetgirig

Under år 2012 talade man allt mer om företeelsen MOOC. Bokstavskombinationen står för massive open online course, vilket i svensk tolkning innebär att det är en sorts kurs (course) som vänder sig till ett mycket stort antal deltagare (massive) som utan behörighetskrav eller andra restriktioner kan registrera sig som deltagare (open) utan några förpliktelser utöver ett eget intresse.

Lars-Erik Jonsson's insight:

Vi kan notera här att för den enskilde individen innebär en sådan här kurs ett antal positiva paradoxer.  Individen har maximal frihet samtidigt som man ingår i ett nätverk av kontakter med andra resurspersoner.  Innehållsligt kan varje individ fokusera på sitt intresseområde samtidigt som alla kursresurser i form av förslag och nyproducerat material är tillgängligt. Slutligen finns det inga speciella kursmål som skall läras utan lärandet består i att man faktiskt knyter an till de resurser - personer och andra källor - som är relevanta för det intresse man har (eller som växer fram).

Companies shouldn't make millions from the free labor of professors.

By Hugh Gusterson
When I became a professor, 20 years ago, I received a request from a woman who lived close to the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, where I taught: Could she come and talk to me about a set of interests she was developing, in the area of my own specialty in anthropology, and get my advice on applying to graduate school? We spoke for about 45 minutes in my office, at the end of which she asked, "How much do I owe you?"

Vi ser ständigt hur producenter vill försöka skaffa sina egna system för att binda köparna till de egna produkterna. Vid en snabb tillbakablick kommer jag själv att tänka på olika system för smalfilm som dubbelåtta och superåtta, instamatic, olika videosystem, olika operativsystem, olika typer av minneskort, olika filformat etc.
