The Metamorphosis of MOOCs

Edsurge

At a recent meeting of educational technology policy advisors, a well-informed university CIO casually declared that MOOCs were history. Increasingly, MOOCs are being packaged into series of courses with a non-degree credential being offered to those who successfully complete the series. Perhaps it is employers who should be the most supportive of the latest MOOC developments. Just like stand-alone MOOCs, most learners—over 80 percent—already had a Bachelors or higher degree.

A Proposal to Put the ‘M’ Back in MOOCs

Edsurge

MOOCs have evolved over the past five years from a virtual version of a classroom course to an experience that feels more like a Netflix library of teaching videos. One important benefit of the first MOOCs was that they started at fixed times, like traditional college courses, which meant that large numbers of people were sharing an experience and posting questions and answers to forums. The on-demand MOOC trend has led to a drastic reduction in forum activity within MOOC cohorts.

Has the MOOC revolution come and gone? Or will the principles of the MOOC movement continue to influence higher ed? On Tuesday, April 10 the #DLNchat community got together to discuss and debate: How Have MOOCs Impacted Approaches to Student Learning?

MOOCs Find Their Audience: Professional Learners and Universities

The media started calling this space MOOCs or Massive Open Online Courses, a term coopted from a 2008 experiment. The narrative in early days of MOOC space was around disruption of universities.

MOOCs Started Out Completely Free. Where Are They Now?

Edsurge

I took one of the very first MOOCs, and back then the videos, assignments, and certificates were all free. As MOOC providers focussed on finding a business model, they started putting certain aspects of the experience behind a paywall, hoping to get more people to pay. MOOCs went from free to free to audit (nevermind that the concept of auditing a class is completely foreign in most parts of the world). So here’s a summary of what free means for the four biggest MOOC players.

The percentage of institutions offering a MOOC seems to be leveling off, at around 14 percent, while suspicions persist that MOOCs will not generate money or reduce costs for universities—and are not, in fact, sustainable. The survey, which has tracked opinions about online education for more than a decade, started asking academic leaders about MOOCs in 2012, when free online courses seemed poised to disrupt the walled gardens of elite college instruction.

Justin Reich, a research fellow at HarvardX, the university’s online arm, says he was surprised by the number of teachers who take MOOCs. Teachers enroll in MOOCs for a number of reasons, he says.
