Monetizing MOOCs – When Is it Right to Switch to Self-Serving Classes?

Monetizing MOOCs – When Is it Right to Switch to Self-Serving Classes? | MOOC | Scoop.it
By Dr. Patricia Campbell
Dean, Graduate Studies at American Public University

Over the past few years, there has been a great deal of discussion around whether MOOCs can become sustainable or even profitable. This post doesn’t set out to answer that specific question, but rather it explores why someone might want to pay for a MOOC. What can a student expect of a MOOC and is it really worth the time and/or money?

MOOCs: the future of higher education, or a passing phase? | MOOC | Scoop.it
Massive open online courses (MOOCs) have quickly become one of the most polarizing developments in higher education.

EduGeek Journal » Learning Design Versus Learner Design in the Dual Layer MOOC

EduGeek Journal » Learning Design Versus Learner Design in the Dual Layer MOOC | MOOC | Scoop.it

So I want to take a step back and look at a bigger picture for a  moment. The previous diagram I created was meant as more of a “learner design” perspective, in the sense that the dual paths would be the two main possibilities for learners. This was meant to look at the course from the eyes of a learner. But, the diagram breaks down in many ways since this will not be a traditional course. This course will attempt to deconstruct what it is to learn, be a learner, and to move through a course.

Academics call for guidelines on use of online learners’ data

Academics call for guidelines on use of online learners’ data | MOOC | Scoop.it

Guidelines to ensure the ethical use of data gathered from online learners need to be developed, to prevent the misuse of personal information, a group of academics has said.

 

Delegates at the Asilomar Convention for Learning Research in Higher Education, which took place in California earlier this month, have produced a framework to promote the appropriate use of both learners’ personal information, and any research based on their activity.

 

The document states that six principles should inform the collection, storage, distribution and analysis of information gathered from people who engage with online learning resources such as massive open online courses.

Open, Massive Online Courses- Just Continuing Education or a Helpful Recruiting Tool? | HireVue | MOOC | Scoop.it

Recruiters will want to consider the the following before dismissing involvement with a MOOC provider. Students who complete a MOOC:

 

-are normally highly motivated to learn;

 

-have demonstrated their ability to stick to a task through completion;

 

-tend to have the same competency in the subject as a student completing the class at a brick and mortar school.
