The March of the MOOCs: Monstrous Open Online Courses | Open Education | HYBRID PEDAGOGY

The March of the MOOCs: Monstrous Open Online Courses | Open Education | HYBRID PEDAGOGY | MOOCs for Beginners | Scoop.it

"MOOCs are a red herring. The MOOC didn’t appear last week, out of a void, vacuum-packed. The MOOC has been around for years, biding its time. Still, the recent furor about MOOCs, which some have called “hysteria,” opens important questions about higher education, digital pedagogy, and online learning. The MOOCs themselves aren’t what’s really at stake. In spite of the confused murmurs in the media, MOOCs won’t actually chomp everything in their path. And they aren’t an easy solution to higher education’s financial crisis. In fact, a MOOC isn’t a thing at all, just a methodological approach, with no inherent value except insofar as it’s used."

if Foucault ran a MOOC by Bon Stewart

In the mad hype these days about MOOCs – which are Massive Open Online Courses, for those of you either not in higher ed or currently aboard the Mars rover – I find myself that dreary voice in the back of the class repeatedly piping up Hey dudes. MOOCs are not just whatever you decided they were when you encountered the word yesterday. MOOCs have a history.

I’ve been quite enjoying Hybrid Pedagogy‘s MOOC MOOC. Advertised as a MOOC about MOOCs, it promises to be a “lively, playful scrutiny and consideration of the Massive Open Online Course.” Of course, some people have already pointed out that the course isn’t technically a MOOC. Rebecca, (@rjhogue) on Twitter, has pointed out that the weekly time format for MOOC MOOC doesn’t really lend well to the creation of content. Apostolous K, an instructional designer from Salem, MA, goes further:

Munching on MOOCs | Teaching, Distance Learning | Chris Friend

Munching on MOOCs | Teaching, Distance Learning | Chris Friend | MOOCs for Beginners | Scoop.it

I enrolled in a weeklong massive, open, online class about massive, open, online classes (or MOOCs as a more-efficient alternative). This particular MOOC is studying the nature of MOOCs. It’s open to anyone, but my Twitter stream has been obsessing all morning about its release last night. Despite my natural tendency toward being a wallflower, I decided to jump in with this one.

This is going to be either a valuable and engaging learning opportunity, or a Very Bad Idea™ at a very inopportune time: the UCF semester starts next week. Here’s why I signed up.

Nothing Will Stop the Incessant March

 

Starting August 12, 2012, Hybrid Pedagogy, an online journal of teaching and technology, will host a MOOC (Massive Open Online Course) designed specifically at looking carefully at this new pedagogical approach.

There can be no doubt that this has been the summer of MOOCs: Massive Open Online Courses have seized the attention of faculty, journalists, and, more infamously, administrators. Naturally, the sclerotic, tweedy, Ivory Tower will take no notice of MOOCs until all courses that can move online will have done so, right? Wrong! Next week, starting on Monday, Hybrid Pedagogy is launching a MOOC MOOC, that is, a massively open online course that aims to study the pedagogical and institutional implication of the emergence of these classes.

Tips for new MOOCers (#eduMOOC)

Back in April, I attended my first ever MOOC. What is a MOOC you ask? A Massively Open Online Course, for a great introduction check out this video. I found the course to be useful, but also frustrating. It lacked a little in design – or at least that was my thought at the time, now that I know a little more about MOOCs, I'm starting to "get it".

Jared Stein – Education, Technology, Culture, and the Internet » MOOC(MOOC) Questions

Though I’ve spent nearly all of my career in higher ed supporting, facilitating, designing, and teaching online and blended courses, I’ve not yet ventured into serious exploration of MOOCs. My abstinence has centered on some skepticism of the “massive” in “MOOC”, but also on outstanding questions about the viability of loosely connected spaces, learning pathways, and interactions that seem central, at least to the connectivist foundations of MOOCs.
