The future of MOOCs

E-Learning Provocateur

Consider the boy in San Francisco whose maths teacher simply doesn’t teach very well. There’s no point rehashing the same lectures when the world’s best authorities have already recorded them and offered them to the world as OERs. MOOCs get a bad rap. Dismissed as prescriptive, or teacher-centric, or unsocial, or something else, it’s like a badge of honour to espouse why you dislike MOOCs.

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. Flexible software-based video platforms let faculty greatly enhance how they use this technology, and offer new ways of teaching.

To help achieve this vision, Mackintosh is setting up the OER University and is evangelistic in his elucidation of this concept. There is growing presence and force behind this vision, and as the OER movement gains traction and impetus, we should expect to see some changes in the way universities offer their programmes of study. He makes some stark, incisive remarks about education: 'Stop teaching calculating, and start teaching maths'.

Instructional Design Experience Before Your First Job

Experiencing eLearning

Sites like OER Commons and e-learningforkids.org accept content, so you could create something and have it used by real people. If you have recently started as an instructional designer, especially if you switched from teaching/training/another field, how did you prove your skills? One of the recurring questions I hear from those trying to start their instructional design careers is “How do you get experience in the field so you can get your first ID job?&#.

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.” MOOCs on various topics can be set up using blended content – some custom designed and some re-purposed from OERs and other available content from the net as long as one takes care to note the various IPR-related policies.

These sources include open educational sources (OERs). Early research suggests that learning from OERs is similar to that achieved from traditional textbooks. Set the trainers’ expectations: Ensure that the teaching faculty are aware of what is required of them to create the online learning program. Online education with the help of online learning program development, of late, has been gaining massive popularity and a robust following.

Why Should Traditional Publishers Switch to Digital Publishing Platforms?

Use effective and unique content to create an edge over OERs – Despite the arrival of many and varied modes of content delivery that are expected to reshape the digital publishing industry, content will continue to be the king.

Many MOOCs are built using open educational resources (OER) or a combination of OER and proprietary content. One of the big reasons professors want to teach MOOCs is to increase their visibility.
