Quality in MOOCs: Surveying the Terrain

Quality in MOOCs: Surveying the Terrain | Moodle mobile | Scoop.it
Author
Hood, Nina Littlejohn, Allison 

Abstract 
The purpose of this review is to identify quality measures and to highlight some of the tensions surrounding notions of quality, as well as the need for new ways of thinking about and approaching quality in MOOCs. It draws on the literature on both MOOCs and quality in education more generally in order to provide a framework for thinking about quality and the different variables and questions that must be considered when conceptualising quality in MOOCs. The review adopts a relativist approach, positioning quality as a measure for a specific purpose. The review draws upon Biggs’s (1993) 3P model to explore notions and dimensions of quality in relation to MOOCs — presage, process and product variables — which correspond to an input–environment–output model. The review brings together literature examining how quality should be interpreted and assessed in MOOCs at a more general and theoretical level, as well as empirical research studies that explore how these ideas about quality can be operationalised, including the measures and instruments that can be employed. What emerges from the literature are the complexities involved in interpreting and measuring quality in MOOCs and the importance of both context and perspective to discussions of quality.

Open learning resources are great, however just a tiny step towards more effective higher education. The only way to make students more active and conscious is to let them make learning plans and let societal representations vote for its quality and need. Good plans get a budget to let them contract teachers, consultants and any partners who can trigger "learning by design". How to finance those grants? Let universities prune its staffs and managers.....

Dennis T OConnor's curator insight, May 18, 2015 12:37 PM

This looks promising. The CC requirement for online video means all online teachers need to step up their game on subtitling.  I was made aware of this product by Jeremiah Stanley, a tech-talented graduate student in my E-Learning Practicum class.


Jeremiah reported Aegisum as "...a  free, cross-platform open source tool for creating subtitles. The testing I have done with it so far let me create subtitles and load the file into YouTube and Vimeo. There is also a large number of file types you can output to with Aegisub so if the educators do not use either YouTube or Vimeo they could still caption there videos."


Jeremiah and I will drive this product hard and see where it leads.

Bootstrap and Moodle – Gradebook tweak!

Bootstrap and Moodle – Gradebook tweak! | Moodle mobile | Scoop.it
Bootstrap themes have been available for Moodle for a while now, and a small issue was there that I had not seen before – until a lecturer wondered why they could not see grades in the gradebook that should have been there.

As it is that time of year that many are dealing with end of semester grades, I thought I should pass along the solution for you if you have not known about it.

** Please note that this may not effect your site depending on the version of Moodle and if you are using a Bootstrap theme.

The issue is this:

When a teacher hides a grade from students it got a class=’hidden’ applied. Themes before bootstrap ignored it as they did not have a style for it. However bootstrap base, and therefore themes like Clean etc did have a style of it namely:

display:none;
visibility:hidden;

So instead of showing grey-ed out, or showing normally, the hidden grades vanished on the interface for the teacher as in the screenshots below.

New Microsoft Office 365 open source integration with Moodle transforms education technology | News Center

LONDON — Jan. 19, 2015 — Microsoft Open Technologies Inc. (MS Open Tech), a subsidiary of Microsoft Corp., together with leading Moodle partner Remote-Learner.net Inc., on Monday announced integration between Moodle and Microsoft Office 365, bringing a more productive experience to teachers and students by harmonizing login credentials, calendar management and course content creation, in addition to other workflow improvements for education institutions and other Moodle users.

“Working closely with Remote-Learner, we’re delivering a technical solution for one of the most popular open source learning management systems that aims to provide seamless workflows for both Moodle and Office 365 users,” said Jean Paoli, president of MS Open Tech. “By working closely with the open Moodle community, MS Open Tech will continue taking feedback and maintaining, improving, and adding new features.”

The open source Office 365 and Microsoft Services plugins for Moodle include integration with OneDrive for Business, OneNote and Office 365 Outlook calendar. The integration allows students and instructors, as well as enterprise users, to sign on to Moodle with the same ID, making single sign-on easier and faster for education institutions and other Moodle users with Office 365 accounts. In addition, events created in Moodle will be stored in teachers’ and students’ personal Office 365 calendars, enabling them to easily track course events and due dates. Previously, instructors needed to update their Outlook calendars manually, or send event invitations separately to students.

Curation as a tool for teaching and learning

What is curation anyway, and how can it be used as a tool for student and teacher learning? This essay will investigate what curation is and the different contexts it is used in. Why is it important; who are the curators, what motivates them and what makes a great curator? What processes and tools are used for curation and what digital literacies are required for successful curation? It will conclude with an investigation into ways teachers can use curation both with and for their students and as a tool for their own professional learning and a brief look at some curation tools.
