Edsurge

One selling point of MOOCs (massive online open courses) has been that students can access courses from the world’s most famous universities. He also happens to be the co-founder of Coursera itself, and it was his Stanford course on machine learning that helped launch the MOOC craze in the first place. In fact, Ng’s original Stanford MOOC remains the most popular course offered by Coursera. Meanwhile, it’s important to note the limits of the MOOC format.

Online Learning's 'Greatest Hits'

Students can communicate peer-to-peer and also engage instructors directly in text, voice, and video, recorded for later access or run immediately in real-time. Digital Authoring Systems Faced with increasingly complex communication technologies—voice, video, multimedia, animation—university faculty, expert in their own disciplines, find themselves technically perplexed, largely unprepared to build digital courses. The term MOOC was coined by others in 2008.)

Online Classes Get a Missing Piece: Teamwork

Edsurge

Sure, there are sophisticated online lectures where learners can see one another on screen and break out into small groups to chat via video. MOOCs get social. Carolyn Rosé, an assistant professor in the Human-Computer Interaction Institute at Carnegie Mellon University, has been exploring ways to add social engagement to MOOCs since 2013. In summer 2016 Rosé and her team used Bazaar to run a team-based project for a MOOC offered by the Smithsonian Institution.

In fact, if you Google “rainbow starburst bracelet” and the official video from the company has been viewed a fraction of the times. As a researcher, Justin has been carrying this concept into his work with MOOCs.

How ‘Learning Engineering’ Hopes to Speed Up Education

What’s more, for each of these choices, there are additional decisions about which media to use (video, audio, hands-on), whether to give concrete examples, and more. Studies have consistently shown that students tasked with responding to interactive exercises, like answering online quizzes, retain more than those tasked with passive learning activities such as reading or watching videos. That kind of feedback would be perfect if you had a robot learner on the other end,” he says.

How a Pandemic Could Change Higher Education

Edsurge

This is the second installment in what is now a weekly video town hall on how colleges should respond to the pandemic. At Duke we’ve been thinking about, like a lot of universities, a “robot-proof future,” and thinking about the sixty-year curriculum. The COVID-19 pandemic has cast a cloud of uncertainty over higher education. Colleges around the country have shut down and moved teaching online, and no one knows when it will be safe to reopen and resume normal operations.

I kicked things off with a survey of major technological developments in a very top level way, then dived into specific, currently used digital tools (the LMS, ePortfolios, video, robotics, big data, social media, 3d printing, etc.).
