99 Best Online College Resources on Open Courseware & MOOCs | top5onlinecolleges.org With the increasing popularity of online education has come a profusion of Massively Open Online Courses (MOOCs), Open Courseware (OCW), Open Educational Resources (OER), and other general educational resources that can be accessed online. MOOCs are usually full courses with actual assignments and a similar structure to a traditional college class, whereas OCW and OER are simply resources, such as textbooks, class rubrics, and other corollary materials that students can use to guide their independent learning. This collection isn’t intended as an ordered ranking comparing the quality of these sites, but a repository of great resources for anyone who wants to learn more about MOOCs and OCW. Many companies have set up platforms that anyone can use to create and promote MOOCs, and as the MOOC format gets more popular, there will doubtlessly be heavy competition to create the best course creation and hosting service.

Is there a business model for MOOCs? Report from #emoocs2014 Panel discussion at #emoocs2014 with MOOCs providers MOOCs have just appeared and the big question has already been raised: are they sustainable? In other words, are they pedagogically adequate, institutionally relevant and financially viable? MOOCs are rupturing the norms of how we have taught and learned until now. One of the questions that comes up again and again refers to the business model. The cost of offering a MOOC I participated in a panel that gathered representatives from edX, Coursera and FutureLearn: three “platforms” delivering MOOCs and creating partnerships with some of the world’s leading universities. Costs of production of MOOCs are largely underestimated; a minimum of 30.000 Euros per MOOC seems to be the lowest acceptable figure. Why MOOCs need a model However, things also have to change on the revenue side. Potential business models We discussed “B2C” and “B2B” models. The bigger picture All in all, the question of MOOCs’ business model is an iceberg.

Mooctivity | MOOC Search Engine and Social Network Cómo y por cuánto crear tu impresora 3D Las impresoras 3D están abriendo una opción de autoabastecimiento de productos manufacturados. Sobre todo porque gran parte de sus precursores se mueve en una corriente de opinión común: que todo el mundo pueda crear la suya en casa para fabricar lo que necesite. El mismo día que el mundo se escandalizó con la primera pistola impresa compartida que funciona, Robohand presentó una prótesis para una mano con dedos mecanizados que devuelve la movilidad a su usuario. Actualmente hay numerosos proyectos de documentación y manuales de software libre para que cualquiera con unos conocimientos básicos de mecánica, electrónica y programación pueda comenzar a crear su impresora 3D y terminarla semanas más tarde. Por mínimas que sean las nociones iniciales, el proceso de aprendizaje es enriquecedor. SF: ¿Cuánto te ha costado y cuánto tiempo has tardado en hacer tu impresora 3D? SF: ¿Qué tipo de impresora es? SF: ¿Por qué elegiste esta combinación?
