Unspoken Concerns about MOOCs

Unspoken Concerns about MOOCs | MOOCs | Scoop.it

Many MOOCs are simply educational gifts, if you will, provided for the intellectually curious, as means of knowledge sharing in the purest sense.  The waters get murkier—and more anxiety producing—however, when these MOOCs become legitimate means of bestowing credentials. In this latter circumstance, the structure and boundaries of higher education are breached, shaking the foundation and laying bare myriad paths to intellectual accomplishment.

MOOCs: Who’s using MOOCs? 10 different target audiences

MOOCs: Who’s using MOOCs? 10 different target audiences | MOOCs | Scoop.it

The problem is that the decision makers often don’t have the marketing skills to differentiate between different addressable audiences. External adult learners may not want a long-winded, over-engineered, six to ten week course on anything. Life’s too short. Yet academics are used to producing courses of this semester length. What many may want are mini MOOCs. They may want them to be asynchronous starting and ending when convenient for them. This, of course, is exactly what’s happening. All in all, however, the good news is that MOOCs are forcing HE institutions to change. MOOCs may very well be the force that makes them more open, transparent and relevant. There will, of course, be a backlash, but the digital genie is out of the bottle - MOOCs are here to stay.

My Life as a MOOC Dropout

My Life as a MOOC Dropout | MOOCs | Scoop.it

"As so often happens with ed tech, there's a gulf between the hype and the reality. While these MOOCs can tout huge enrollment numbers--some 160,000 for the Stanford Artificial Intelligence course that jump-started this recent trend--they don't have high completion rates. Just 21 percent of enrollees actually completed that AI class, and only 14 percent passed."

As I must continually remind myself, we can't equate MOOCs with traditional online courses. They have totally different target audiences and purposes.
