MOOC, 8 tipologies | ladislau girona Recentment he llegit un article al blog de Donald Clark parlant dels MOOCS i les seves diferents tipologies des d’una perspectiva pedagògica, des del punt de vista dels instruments d’aprenentatge que incorporen . En primer lloc ens parla dels TransferMOOCs, la oferta de Coursera entraria dins aquesta categoria. Es tracta de traslladar a una plataforma MOOC els cursos existents; estan conduits pel professor, el supòsit pedagògic és el de la transferència de continguts, molts imiten els cursos tradicionals amb l’ús de conferències, proves curtes, avaluacions. En segon lloc, els MadeMOOCs, Udacity es qui representa millor aquesta categoria. En tercer lloc, els SynchMOOCs, cursos amb data d’inici i d’avaluació fixes. En quart lloc, els AsynchMOOCs, cursos totalment oberts, sense dates fixes d’inici o avaluació. En cinquè lloc, els AdaptativeMOOCs. En sisè lloc, els GroupMOOCs, NovoEd la plataforma MOOC de Stanford és l’exemple. En setè lloc, els ConnectivistMOOCs.

Teaching a MOOC: Lessons Learned & Best Balch Practices « the augmented trader I just completed teaching a MOOC on Computational Investing via coursera.org. I did some things right and a lot of things wrong. Here are my lessons learned from the first round. I’m very excited now about the second go at this, and the ability to make the course even better. Some of these items are coursera specific, but many apply more broadly. Some people will be upset: Be prepared I’m not talking about the students. Your course will be closely scrutinized. One critique MOOCs are susceptible to is an accusation of “dumbing down” or “oversimplification.” Many of these attacks arise from a belief that MOOCs are promoted as “identical” to college course content; Or that the course is “just as rigorous” as graduate course CS XXXX at Georgia Tech. That being said, I do believe that we can produce and deliver “rigorous” content via MOOCs, and many are working on that. Set expectations for the students You also want to avoid having folks in the course who are “over qualified.” More to come

Online Colleges - Compare 2014's Best Accredited Online Schools MOOC pedagogy: the challenges of developing for Coursera In the summer of 2012 the team of teachers and researchers associated with the MSc in E-learning programme at the University of Edinburgh began developing a Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) for the Coursera platform. Launched only a year earlier, this for-profit company founded by Stanford professors Andrew Ng and Daphne Koller has focussed primarily on hosting computer science related courses from big name US institutions. The recently announced partnership with the University of Edinburgh presented the team with an opportunity to engage and experiment with the much-publicised MOOC format, and foreground issues related to the theory and practice of online education itself. Designing for MOOCs Devising a course to utilise the potential educational advantages of the Coursera platform proved, and is still proving, to be a complex undertaking. Firstly there is the issue of digital mimicry. Why do it? E-learning and digital cultures

La révolution MOOC | Un site utilisant Blogs Blog.educpros.fr La Révolution MOOC n’a pas eu lieu ? Force est de constater que l’enthousiasme pour les MOOC est retombé. « Les MOOC font pschitt ? » titrait Le Monde en octobre 2017, tandis que France Culture orchestrait pour la rentrée un débat autour de la question : « Qui a mis K.O. les MOOC ? ». Ce constat m’avait poussé à proposer un article au site the Conversation, dont la suite est fournie ci-dessous, et à faire des vidéos d’une part avec un ami, Pleen, et d’autre part avec Xerfi.
