Learning English Mooc to be launched on FutureLearn. The British Council is to offer its first free online course for learning English on the UK massive open online course platform FutureLearn.

Learning English Mooc to be launched on FutureLearn

It is the first course to be delivered by one of the “cultural partners” of the Open University-owned Mooc provider, rather than by a university. Other such partners include the British Library and the British Museum. The course, which will begin this autumn, is aimed at non-native speakers with intermediate levels of English language proficiency, and will include learning about British culture and traditions to enable learners to gain a better understanding of life in the UK. It is not designed to link directly with any UK government-recognised Secure English Language Test, however the British Council said it hoped that participants on the course would “feel confident to then explore options towards taking a SELT”. chris.parr@tsleducation.com Click to rate 1 star out of 52 stars out of 53 stars out of 54 stars out of 55 stars out of 5.

What are Open Educational Resources

However, the following broad definition of OERs from OER Commons seems to be generally accepted by the community: Open Educational Resources (OER) are teaching and learning materials that are freely available online for everyone to use, whether you are an instructor, student or self-learner. Examples of OER include: full courses, course modules, syllabi, lectures, homework assignments, quizzes, lab and classroom activities, pedagogical materials, games, simulations, and many more resources contained in digital media collections from around the world. OERs exist within a wider 'Open' movement and context, explored below. The Open Movement.

Open Educational Resources (OER): Resource Roundup

Why are OER important? High-quality OER can save teachers significant time and effort on resource development and advance student learning inside and outside the classroom. Further, open sharing of resources has the potential to fuel collaboration, encourage the improvement of available materials, and aid in the dissemination of best practices.

Bloom's taxonomy

The verbs are intended to be feasible and measurable. Bloom's taxonomy is a classification of learning objectives within education. It is named for Benjamin Bloom, who chaired the committee of educators that devised the taxonomy, and who also edited the first volume of the standard text, Taxonomy of Educational Objectives: The Classification of Educational Goals. Bloom's taxonomy refers to a classification of the different objectives that educators set for students (learning objectives). It divides educational objectives into three "domains": cognitive, affective, and psychomotor (sometimes loosely described as "knowing/head", "feeling/heart" and "doing/hands" respectively).

Bloom's taxonomy is considered to be a foundational and essential element within the education community. History[edit] The first volume of the taxonomy, "Handbook I: Cognitive" (Bloom et al. 1956) was published in 1956.
