The future of MOOCs

E-Learning Provocateur

As the latest edition of Educause Review indicates, universities are fee-for-service businesses.

What Makes a MOOC a MOOC?

ID Reflections

The OER movement was the trigger for the MOOCs then. User generated content is encouraged and feeds into the courses keeping them contextual and current L&D dons the hat of community managers, curators and connectors enabling employees to find the right course, access the right discussion forums and reach out to expertise when needed All of this implies a MOOC philosophy that is not course-centric but learner-centric.
