  3. 3. WHAT IS A MOOC ? A massive open online course (MOOC) is a free Webbased distance learning program that is designed for the participation of large numbers of geographically dispersed students A MOOC may be patterned on a college or university course or may be less structured. Although MOOCs don't always offer academic credits, they provide education that may enable certification, employment or further studies MOOCs generate massive quantities of data about learner behaviour, which can be used to understand cognitive growth and how to improve instruction assive pen nline ourse
  4. 4. HISTORY OF MOOC’S The first MOOC was launched in 2008 created by educators Stephen Downes and George Siemens. The first MOOC was called “Connectivism and Connective Knowledge/2008” (CCK8)  Building off a for-credit course at the University of Manitoba, Canada, this was the first class designed behind acronym for “Mooc” In 2011, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Open Course Ware (OCW) became the first large collections of MOOC resources made available by a university
  5. 5. HISTORY OF MOOC’S In 2012, MIT and Harvard spearheaded the edX initiative for the promotion of MOOCs. The acronym MOC is pronounced with a long “oo” sound, to rhyme with “kook” rather than “book”. The Oxford online dictionary added the term (as "Mooc") in August 2013.
  6. 6. HOW DOES MOOC’S WORK?  Aimed at unlimited participation and open access via the web  Provide interactive user fora that help build a community for students, professors, and teaching assistants (TAs)  Resemble real classroom experience and offer high quality classes for everyone.  Provides connections between the learners and the teacher  Provides free courses online even though no official certificate is issued after completion.  MOOCs rely on traditional lecture approaches; students must self-organize study groups or discussion.
  7. 7. IMPORTANCE OF MOOC’S  It is a tuition-free course taught over the Web to a large number of students  Open to anyone anywhere and easy to access  Gives access to the teaching of a world class professor to thousands of students at once.  MOOCs aren’t bound by traditional university credentialing – they can be offered with or without a certificate or “badge” indicating that a student has completed the course.  It also shifts conversation and dialogue about the content to a more diverse student population that could be worldwide – a community of learners  Work across time zone and boundaries
  8. 8. DIFFERENT TYPES OF MOOC’S cMOOC’S  Academics, Non profits, Individuals  Constructivist, Connectivists approach  Many-to-many (Dialogue, Peer to peer interactions)  Informal learning  Collaborative, peer assessment  Rich social media  Drive towards openness  Network building, collaboration xMOOC’S  primarily based on interactive media, such as lectures, videos and text. Adopted a more behaviourist pedagogical approach, with the emphasis on individual learning, rather than learning through peers  Major Universities  Behaviorist, Cognitive approach  More formal learning  Coordinated assessments and quizzes (often automated)  Open to join but not all content  Organized group work
  9. 9. FIELD OF INTEREST: LIFE SCIENCES MOOC’S (SCIENCES)
  10. 10. …FIELD OF INTEREST CONTINUES I am interested in Biology (Sciences mooc’s) because I'm a life sciences (Biology) student teacher. I find the biology (Sciences mooc’s) more helpful and interesting because it will help me to unpack and understand complex topics in biology, topics such as Molecules of life, Blood flow in the human heart and the plant cell internal identification of organelles Such topics are very complex and requires a 3D dimensional view so that they can be understood, the Biology (sciences mooc’s) will make things easier We live in a modern society were kids are more computer literate, exposing them to such types of mooc’s (Biology sciences Mooc’s) will make their learning easy
  11. 11. TOPICS I WILL PERSUE IN MY FUTURE MOOCS EXPERIENCE Chemistry – Building Blocks of the World Flow of blood in the human heart Plant cell internal identification of organelles Microbiology and Forensic Science
