11 Differences between a MOOC and an Online Course

ID Reflections

I love this definition of MOOCs by Ignatia Inge deWaard in her e-book, MOOC Yourself: “A MOOC is a non-defined pedagogical format to organize learning /teaching/training on a specific topic in an informal, online, and collaborative way.” This captures the key essence of a MOOC highlighting the key differentiators between a MOOC and an online course. Hence, it is essential to identify the key aspects of what makes a MOOC a MOOC.

Why Open Content is Not Yet Adopted in the Workplace

Kapp Notes

ASTD's Big Question for March is How do we leverage open content in workplace learning? The concept seems straightforward--a no brainer, take content that is used by many different organizations, and share it with others so that the overall cost is extremely low or free. One of the best known is MIT's Open Courseware project. And the concept seems to be gaining momentum. OERs include learning content as well as tools to create and share the content.

Moving Microlearning to the Cloud

Ed App

Mobile learning in massive open online courses (MOOC) is different from the traditional forms of learning as it is fragmented and heavily-dependant on collaboration. A cloud-based system organizes learners to work as a team and customizes microlearning content to meet the personal demands in real-time. A smart learning environment ideally uses data mining techniques to understand learner behavior and offer relevant content based on the data collected.

ID Reflections

MOOCs have taken the world of higher ed and corporate learning by the proverbial storm. When George Siemens , Dave Cormier and Stephen Downes came up with the concept in 2008, they had a vision of how a “learning design” based on Connectivism could change the face of learning and collaboration. The OER movement was the trigger for the MOOCs then. They are no longer cutting the ice.

Innovation at the Intersection of Technology and Teaching

TechSmith Camtasia

Director of Learning Technology Solutions Leif Nelson shares models of innovation, practical experience with managing change, and thoughts about where innovative teaching and technology will converge in higher education. Instead, let’s look at this backwards at the ‘what’ of innovation, and how it affects us as educators in higher education. The ‘what’ of innovation.

Around the globe

Learning with e's

2010 has been another busy year for me, with a lot of travel and I estimate that I have more than 54,000 air miles to my name - more than twice around the globe. When I add all my hours travelling in trains and buses on top, and all the hours spent waiting in airport lounges, it makes me feel exhausted just thinking about it. But the travel is part of my job, and on reflection, it has all been worth it. Prior to the conference, we were rocked by a 5.0
