A Discussion from OKMOOC -Module 7 - Open Educational Resources from lesson plans to instructional videos
Discussing as a person who brought up by MOOC, I am so enthusiastic in the aspects as I gained so many knowledge out of the MOOC..
First it was about moving to one course from another.. getting certifications...
Then I realize ... what a certification can do if I can not apply what I learn from all these ..
Then I began to focus on the
- Network of people / Connections
- Relationships in building new knowledge with them
- Analyzing the common trends of attitudes , how different cultural people see the same withing in different aspects...
So I can say MOOC gave a framework to see how we should see , feel and experiment the learning process.
few points I would like to bring from this talk from the CEO of edX platform.
So true the fact we still see the education as the same thing sometime even when we using the digital technologies, we tend to mimic the same process with the computers..
Prof.Agaraval says about flipping the class room.. where students will prepare at their own phase and come to class for discussion.
And it is really great that this MOOC concept is accessible to any student and that makes a society which is rich in knowledge.
I particularly like the model he propose that MOOC courses can be the text book of typical classroom...
But for that we have to address the issues of MOOCs .. sometimes the platform..
Where it has many enrollments,this need to be well processed to identify the network patterns, or optimize the connections, increase the skills outcome of MOOC to face the challenges in 21st century.
So far the MOOC concerns more about the content and the forum discussions.
But it is important to consider beyond that..
