Conecta13's curator insight, November 11, 2013 4:54 PM

La aportación de Albert Sangrá, Director del eLearn Center de la UOC, nos llegó en vídeo, con el título 'Retos de los MOOCs'.


Según Albert a los MOOC se les debe el auge de la presencia de la formación en línea en el debate educativo, si bien cuestiona la transferencia entre el acceso a la información y la generación de conocimiento o un impacto real en el acceso universal a la educación.

 

Según Sangrá el gran reto de los MOOC es "identificar cómo mantener los estándares de calidad que la formación en línea ya ha alcanzado y, sin embargo, ofrecer un sistema de formación que sea sostenible para la mayor parte de nuestra sociedad"

COOCS

COOCS | Sandra Sanchez-Gordon: Web accessibility in MOOCs | Scoop.it

Community Open Online Courses (COOCs) are an opportunity for people to share their passions, ideas and knowledge with each other. What learning is created is down to you, the users.  Learning is most enjoyable when it is taught by those with enthusiasm and a desire to share what they know.  The word 'courses' is loosely used, there are no exams, no tests, no qualifications required.  The aim is to get people from all parts of the community to generate learning opportunities and to share their knowledge. 

How the learning/ teaching looks, what it involves and what it includes is up to you.  People learn in many ways and we hope you can bring creativity, enthusiasm and positivity as we start to create courses across many areas of interest.
