Toward Sustainable MOOCs

Toward Sustainable MOOCs | MOOC's in America | Scoop.it
MOOCS continue to dominate discussions regarding technology, access and cost. The degree to which they can be seen as sustainable appears to be receding as a concern. A variety of applications and business models have started to emerge.

Stanford’s Venture Lab MOOC Platform Goes Private, Relaunches as NovoEd | Matt Enis - Library Journal

Stanford’s Venture Lab MOOC Platform Goes Private, Relaunches as NovoEd | Matt Enis - Library Journal | MOOC's in America | Scoop.it

Stanford has become a hotbed of activity in the MOOC field, with NovoEd now the third MOOC platform to emerge from the university during the past two years following Udacity and Coursera. According to Stanford professor and NovoEd founder Amin Saberi, this latest platform is unique in the way it facilitates and emphasizes interaction between students, encouraging the formation of groups and collaboration on projects. Students also rate the work and participation of others within their groups, creating a system of accountability to one’s peers.

Great information. Thank you.
JohnRobertson's curator insight, April 18, 2013 10:10 AM

I can't help wondering how this compares to other efforts. For example, @openstudy who run social structures and support around opencourseware such as some of MIT's OCW. As a clear example I'm still struck by how the Mechanical MOOC ( @MOOC_E ) pulled together 3 or 4 services (including openstudy) to provide a framework around OCW. I'm not sugesting their approach would work for every discipline but I'm a little surprised at the fanfare NovoEd has got in the press.

The Most Thorough Summary (to date) of MOOC Completion Rates - | MOOC's in America | Scoop.it

How many times have you heard the statement that ‘MOOCs have a completion rate of 10%’ or ‘MOOCs have a completion rate of less than 10%’? The meme seems to have developed a life of its own, but try to research the original claim and you might find a bunch of circular references or anecdotes of one or two courses. Will the 10% meme hold up once we get more data?
