MOOC – A solution to Higher Education and Future Learning
Is MOOC the solution to future learning, especially online education and learning in Higher Education? Our past experience with MOOC has interesting results. There are huge potential in its use, though there are still lots of challenges as I would like to share “our views” and experiences below: There has been a few rounds of MOOC conversation and lots of unanswered questions, relating especially to Stephen’s response to David Wiley’s response on knowledge transfer. I think this depends on what sort of knowledge that we are referring to. Is learning related to the transfer, transmission or replication of information or knowledge in MOOC? So, there are differences in views and understanding of the concept of knowledge and learning within a complex learning environment (epistemology and ontology), amongst academics, scholars, researchers, educators and learners.
