Designing effective MOOCs
Next week I am taking part in a symposium entitled ‘Design issues and participation in MOOCs’ along with Pambos Vrasidas and George Veletsianos, at the ‘Internationalization, Cross-Border Education and E-Learning Conference‘, which is taking place in Nicosia, Cyprus on 4 – 5th June. The symposium will explore three main questions:
- What are the key design elements of successful MOOCs?
- What is it like to learn in Massive Open Online Courses?
- What are the challenges and possibilities offered by MOOCs?
As part of this I have prepared a positional paper on ‘Designing effective MOOCs’. This is available on slideshare, comments welcome!
