Half an Hour: Evaluating a MOOC

Half an Hour: Evaluating a MOOC | Zukunft des Lernens | Scoop.it

I was asked (along with Dave Cormier and George Siemens):

"How might it be possible to show that cMOOCs are effective for learning, in the sense of providing evidence that institutions might accept so as to support opening up more courses to outside participants (a la ds106, Alec Couros' EC&I 831, etc.)? Or, more generally, providing evidence that participation in and facilitating cMOOCs is worthy of support by institutions... What I'm looking for are criteria one might use to say that a cMOOC is successful. What should participants be getting out of cMOOCs?"

I think the best way to understand success in a MOOC is by analogy with, say a book, or a game, or a trip to the city. ...

What about the business model of MOOC? | Zukunft des Lernens | Scoop.it

May be MOOC suffers from the term course itself, as it really sends a message that it intends to achieve a set of learning outcomes, as traditionally set in a course. It is NOT. It is more than what the course intends to achieve, ...

Connectivism - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Connectivism - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia | Zukunft des Lernens | Scoop.it

Connectivism was introduced as a theory of learning based on the premise that knowledge exists in the world rather than in the head of an individual.

 

Connectivism proposes a perspective similar to the Activity theory of Vygotsky as it regards knowledge to exist within systems which are accessed through people participating in activities. It also bears some similarity with the Social Learning Theory of Bandura that proposes that people learn through contact.

 

The add-on "a learning theory for the digital age", that appears on Siemens paper [1] indicates the special importance that is given to the effect technology has on how people live, how they communicate, and how they learn.

 

See also the video from George Siemens explaining that the network is the learning:

Is connectivism a theory? I guess. But when considering its usefulness to my own teaching and learning, I have reservations.
