  • I am Ebba Ossiannilsson, Lund University, Sweden
    I recently, dec 2012 earned my PhD from Oulu University in Finland and I did it through distance

    I work for several international and national organisations on open learning and quality and some of them are represented here by their logos

    I will here especially emphazise the work on the Paris declaration by UNESCO, the work with OER Service and the MOOC quality project. I also use to serve as a reviewer for several organisations, such as EFQUEL and Epprobate.

    I have been asked to talk about the topic I am happy to share this with you today
  • During the session, we will discuss that technology is exciting and offers a change to redefien-or at least alter-learning and education for the better. But how it will shape it and where we are going is not entirely clear. The session will try to focus how this and how it will work. The session will focus both on the MOOC hope and the MOOC hype.
  • Vad betyder så varje bokstav
    Massive =att det är för många, väldigt många
    Open = öppen i vidaste mening, i stort sett enbart ngn devise o Internet
    Online = online inga fysiska möten alls
    Course = att det är en kurs, vanligtvis veckomoduler

    Vidare att MOOCen är autonom, mångfaldig, öppen och interaktiv
    Autonomy, Diversity, Openess, Interactivity
    Jfr Downes blogpost
    cMOOC community basearat, man bygger gemenasmt kursen allteftersom
    xMOOC innehållsbaserad

    Open Badges

    Såvida det inte är arbetsgivaren som ger sk Open Badges, som jag nämnde nyss, vilket redan är vanligt förekommande. I landet väster över…

    ===================================
    Taxonomi 8 varianter Clark (2013)
    transferMOOCs
    madeMOOCs
    synchMOOCs
    asynchMOOCs
    adaptiveMOOCs
    groupMOOCs
    connectivistMOOCS
    miniMOOCSs

    Note that these are not mutually exclusive categories, as one can have a transfer MOOC that is synchronous or asynchronous. What’s important here is that we see MOOCs as informing the debate around learning to get over the obvious problems of relevance, access and cost. This is by no means a definitive taxonomy but it’s a start. I’d really appreciate any comments, critiques or new categories. 


  • Add mobile versions
  • Karen: If you had told me my PLN would look like this a year ago, I would have laughed in your face! I wasn’t even on Facebook let alone Twitter…..and had no idea what PLN meant…Twitter & Blogs are larger font as these have the most impact on my learning at the moment (explain briefly some of the connections in the diagram).

    You can see how connected the PLN is. I learn from many many other people, and with other people: I am basically connected to a global staffroom of engaged and interested teachers…..>>
  • As my strong believe caring is sharing
    So my footprints and contact details

    6. 6. Glacier or tsunami Ossiannilsson2014
    7. 7. In their relatively short history of six years, MOOCs have rapidly grown into a major force in higher education, presenting new opportunities in online learning, academic credit and pedagogical approaches. Why? The rational is straightforward. They offer hope in a higher education landscape that is reeling from reduced funding, shrinking enrolment, and the sky-rocketing expense of obtaining a college degree. MOOC mania is happening at a time when the cost and quality of education at all levels is being questioned. Ossiannilsson2014
    8. 8. Despite the potential of MOOCs to radically reduce costs, raise a university’s profile and improve education, a number of issues and questions remain. The first and foremost is: can they possibly live up to the expectations placed on them—affordable education for everyone with few if any learning problems? Do they really represent a turning point in online education? Or are they simply a popular and headline-friendly trend in a more general move to online education? Ossiannilsson2014
