  • 2. Intro : experience of online courses1. What are MOOCs ? – Impact on higher education2. Students at école Centrale de Lille enrolled in a MOOC course – Feedback : motivation, dropout, course quality, Local study groups, workload – What is left to us locally ?3. MOOCs are proposed by the most famous world universities – Should Centrale also launch MOOCs of its own and how ?20/01/2013
  • 3. Introduction : my experience of online courses
  • 4. My experience of online courses : timeline and stats• Timeline : – 2000 : Open license sharing of slides – 2008 : SEO => more traffic – 2010 : videos, distance learning program – 2012 : website revamp http://gestiondeprojet.pm – Lately : enrolled in MOOCs .. Including ITyPA – Enrollment in progress : MOOC gestion de projet (project management)• Web analytics : – Website : 14k+ unique visits/month – Videos : 1800 hours watched/month – Online Certificate : 40 certificates/year – My MOOC : 200-300 enrolled/week without external support20/01/2013
  • 5. My experience of online courses : conclusions• Open license : Creative Commons-by-NC-SA• A lot of work – Courses need to be rewritten – Website development/maintenance – Video recording takes time – Not just slides, • Interactive quizz, model documents • Widening of topics : finance for projects, problem-solving… • Bringing contracts to the lab20/01/2013
  • 6. What are MOOCs ?Presently Coursera has the biggest offer, offering courses from big name universities
  • 7. Mooc learning environment (1/2)20/01/2013

  • 9. MOOC video course20/01/2013
  • 10. From professor in a lecture hall to online instructor of tens of thousands• Huge enrollments – Free, no tuition fee – 10k+ students, 100.000 students is possible• Teach in new ways : Crowdsourcing technology – discussion forums, • every student reading the forum vote questions and comments up or down – peer grading : • student must score the work of five classmates to get their own score, the average of what their peers gave them – Online video Q&A, wiki – Video lessons in short segments, • embedded quiz questions to keep the viewer engaged and provide instant feedback20/01/2013
  • 11. • MOOCs are causing higher education to shift – From a vertically integrated model to a horizontally integrated one – Decoupling teaching and learning from the campus on a mass scale There are in fact many types of MOOCs : xMOOCs, cMOOCs, task-oriented… and within theses types many different implementations.20/01/2013
  • 12. Impact on higher education• A new business model ? – Under Coursera’s contracts, the company gets most of the revenue; the universities keep 6 percent to 15 percent of the revenue, and 20 percent of gross profits• Exclusionary model called into question. – Today a universitys quality is based on the number of students it rejects. – MOOC enable all interested persons to take courses, – …regardless of their qualifications.20/01/2013
  • 13. Competitors and consequences• Lower-tier universities, – In the US : costly tuition, may have trouble convincing students that their courses are worth the price – Tempted to drop some courses and substitute cheaper online instruction from big- name professors• Top universities – every major university is thinking about what they will do online – stand to gain, both in prestige and in their ability to refine their pedagogy; – no fears about diluting their brand-name appeal.• Competitors – Coursera, 2 millions enrolled students as of 12/2012 • Princeton, the University of Pennsylvania, Stanford and the University of Michigan, 33+ university partners. • Coursera is looking for big names partners now • Participating schools• Udacity, edX, Canvas Network, China Open Resources for Education, Future Learn…20/01/2013
