Researchers Push MOOC Conversation Beyond ‘Tsunami’ Metaphors

Researchers Push MOOC Conversation Beyond ‘Tsunami’ Metaphors | SP MEd | Scoop.it

"Massive open online courses have been a hot topic at higher-education conferences for about two years. But the objective of the MOOC Research Initiative Conference, which brought together dozens of researchers from universities involved in MOOCs, was to move beyond the hype and try to begin sorting out what, exactly, the courses might mean for various parts of higher education."

Sometimes, there may be reasons why our students feel apprehensive about group project due to their prior experiences. They may not have enough time to do the project, the project can be very difficult, free-rider, expectation gap etc.

 

As educators, we should maybe be mindful and try to pre-empt such problems from happening. Useful strategie include: (1) allocating class time for team project; (2) self and peer evaluation; (3) designing a reasonable difficult project with appropriate scaffolding etc.

I always encounter students who hate group work.

Lessons from an early MOOC

Lessons from an early MOOC | SP MEd | Scoop.it

"In September 2008, Michele Martin, Tony Karrer and I hosted a 6-week open professional development program on social media. We did this for the eLearning Guildas a run-up to the annual DevLearn conference. It was an asynchronous (no time-scheduled activities) program. We developed all activities for three levels of participation:Spectator; Joiner; and Creator, with different requirements for each. The majority fell into the first category, but the Creators were able to take on the role of facilitating, which became important as we grew."

Fichter talks about the various online tools and addresses when using such tools can be useful (and when not to). While useful when considering which type of tools are suitable and why a group may wish to use it, the article does not really address what and how a learner may effectively learn from using those tools aside from the suggestion that . The pedagogical justification and assessing the learning outcomes are topics that needs to be explored.
