Everything You Think You Know About MOOCs Could Be Wrong
ELI (EDUCAUSE Learning Initiative) recently hosted their Spring Focus Session on Learning and the Massive Open Online Course (MOOC.) CeTEAL participated in the live sessions and is inviting you to a series of the recorded sessions followed by discussion. Introduction to a brief summary of MOOCs and differing opinions, followed by Michael Feldstein and Phil Hill of Ed Tech Consultants and Analysts.
“There are four things that we think we know about MOOCs: They are "massive," they are "open," they are "online," and they are "courses." But what happens if we start playing with those "truths"? How massive do MOOCs need to be? How open? Do they need to be fully online? Do they even need to be courses? As institutions determine whether and how to incorporate new online models into their repertoire, Phil Hill and Michael Feldstein will explore the boundaries of the current definition of the MOOC and discuss how it is likely to evolve in the next 12-24 months.” We will have an open discussion after the session recordings.
