Straining the Quality of MOOCs: Student Retention and Intention | Open Education | HYBRID PEDAGOGY

Straining the Quality of MOOCs: Student Retention and Intention | Open Education | HYBRID PEDAGOGY | Pedagogy and technology of online learning | Scoop.it

It’s the first thing in the name. MOOCs are primarily massive. They reach huge numbers of students. “Graduating even 5 percent of 100,000 students in a MOOC provides many instructors with substantially greater reach than an entire lifetime of teaching in a conventional classroom.” Educause’s “What Campus Leaders Need to Know about MOOCs” starts with scale: “MOOCs (massive open online courses) are courses delivered over the web to potentially thousands of students at a time.”

diane gusa's insight:

With lack of participant $$$ investment, is the attrition rate a reflection of lack of financial investment or  lack of pedagogy to build engagement? To be fair, massive teaching is new and best practices in this field need to be developed.
