Useful discussion prompt for openness - in professional learning, and when considering development of MOOC learning materials. Massive benefit if these can become part of the OER ecosystem.

Lynnette Van Dyke's curator insight, October 12, 2013 7:36 AM

When Technoduet first published its list of MOOC Providers about six months back, there were just 26 names.  Now it has 40 and growing.

 

Not only number of MOOC providers has multiplied, MOOC themselves have diversified.  We now have SPOC, MOOR  and even a MOOC based on a popular TV series.  The maturity, diversification and popularity of MOOC are all going up.

Tom Hood's curator insight, October 12, 2013 10:37 AM

The speed of learning evolution continues to accelerate as MOOCs (massively open on-line courses) spawn SPOCs (small, private on-line courses) and MOORs (massively open on-line research). Add in social learning, tin can, AICC, and SCORM, we see us quickly moving to just-in-time learning to support the idea of the right talent at the right time with the right skills.

 

I think we are clearly entering the age of learning as a competitive advantage (for us as individuals and our organizations). in an age of rapid ans accelerating change and complexity, the winners will be those who can keep their L>C, their rate of learning must be greater than the rate of change and greater than their competition.

What are SPOC and MOOR?  The article mentions their website's list of MOOC providers — now up to 40. See http://www.technoduet.com/a-comprehensive-list-of-mooc-massive-open-online-courses-providers/

roberto gilli's comment, September 9, 2013 3:41 AM
I think it is a over-semplification. Generally also a "frontal" MOOC has some connectivist areas.
Antoine Taly's comment, September 9, 2013 4:08 AM
It is of course an oversimplification, however the point still stands in most MOOCs I tried the connectivist area exist but is not meant to be central. Even most connectivist MOOCs still look to find the ideal way of implementing it...
roberto gilli's comment, September 9, 2013 4:32 AM
Yes @Antoine, you are right: the ideal way is still to find. And probably there is not a one-solution-fits-all.

Online Classes Fuel a Campus Debate - NYTimes.com

Online Classes Fuel a Campus Debate - NYTimes.com | Metawriting | Scoop.it

Now a new discussion has begun about whether universities should collaborate to develop and share their courses and technology, rather than working with outside providers. This week, the Committee on Institutional Cooperation, a group of provosts from Big 10 universities, issued a position paper saying that higher education must take advantage of new education technology — but perhaps on its own. On a small scale, C.I.C. members’ CourseShare program already does that, with members sharing classes in less commonly taught languages.

The 6th part to the series is about the relatives of MOOCs - MOOClatives. These are online ed resources that have a lot in common with MOOCs but do not quite fit because they are either not massive, not entirely free or not really a complete course.

The only downside of this 'cMOOC' is that it's missed the point of truly 'open'. I need to join them on Google+ if I'm interested. That means individuals have to join a site to participate. Mmmmm.....they should have an open site on the Internet.

VanessaVaile's comment, September 5, 2013 12:41 PM
There are a few open sites on what could emerge as #citymooc distributed networks - plus a #citymooc twitter stream. However, these are not being aggregated. There is no real discussion (connections creating knowledge), organization (not even minimal of feeds or a Daily) or aggregation to speak of. I've had connectivity issues that make G+ highly problematic to use and time consuming but, twitter excepted, there are no other networks. On the other hand, I am adding to my collection of city links, which makes it more part of of at least one PLN than an actual MOOC. That and watching to see what happens, if anything emerges, is enough for now.
