Project Greenfield: A New Way of thinking about OpenCourseWare and Open Educational Resources for MIT

2,025

Published on

“Wouldn’t it be great if MIT OpenCourseWare…” How many times have you heard this phrase? What if there were a sandbox in which the community could test and experiment with the tools and services that might prove useful to OCW visitors, and more generally OER content providers? Find out what the Office of Educational Innovation and Technology at MIT is doing to setup and support this environment to extend the OCW experience. Presented by Brandon Muramatsu at OCWC Global 2010, Hanoi, Vietnam, May 5, 2010.

What do you wish were possible with MIT OCW?<br />Digg-rank up or down courses (popularity), thumbs up, thumbs down<br />Comment on the content that’s there<br />Point out errors/improve the content<br />Translate content<br />Show localizations, same content, different culture (examples)<br />Exemplar recognition<br />7<br />
    10. 10. What do you wish were possible with MIT OCW? (cont.)<br />Tag content<br />RSS notification for new versions of the same course<br />Sit an exam, get credits<br />8<br />
    11. 11. MIT OCW is a Publication<br />MIT OpenCourseWare is a free publication of MIT course materials that reflects almost all the undergraduate and graduate subjects taught at MIT.<br />OCW is not an MIT education.<br />OCW does not grant degrees or certificates.<br />OCW does not provide access to MIT faculty.<br />Materials may not reflect entire content of the course.<br />9<br />Reference: MIT OCW.

    15. 15. Ok, so what do wewantto do?!?!<br />13<br />
    16. 16. Launching Project Greenfield<br />MIT Faculty have asked us about…<br />Interactivity<br />Tools and services<br />Innovative browse mechanisms<br />OEIT’s goals are to:<br />Support MIT faculty <br />Experiment, to show what’s possible (e.g., Web 2.0)<br />Prototype tools and services for published MIT OCW<br />… all with MIT OCW course materials<br />14<br />
    17. 17. 3 Mini-Projects<br />Customizable playlists<br />Improved video and transcript integration<br />Integrated recommender system<br />15<br />
    18. 18.

    19. 19. Customizable Playlists (cont.)<br />Building blocks are there for some videos<br />(e.g., Classical Mechanics)<br />What’s needed?<br />Modern video player<br />(MIT OCW is also working on this)<br />Tools to create chapters/bookmarks<br />Video player to watch the videos<br />17<br />
    20. 20. Improved Video Players<br />All MIT OCW videos have 99% accurate transcripts<br />Displayed as captions on YouTube<br />Available to view/download on OCW site<br />Playback and display on MIT OCW website can be improved<br />Embedded video and transcript as HTML<br />Transcript search not linked to playback<br />18<br />

    24. 24. Some other thoughts…<br />Smart cut and paste with reuse tracking<br />Intrasitehyperlinking (link within the site)<br />Import into WordPress, Moodle<br />22<br />
    25. 25. CAPRETT(Cut and Paste Reuse Tracking Tool)<br />Cut and paste from a lecture? <br /><ul><li>Simple cut and paste supported from HTML pages

    31. 31. IntrasiteHyperlinking(Link within the site)<br />Cross-reference key terms internally across all OCW content<br /><ul><li>Service:
    32. 32. Could limit to OCW content, or expand to selected/all OER repositories
    33. 33. Could link to Wikipedia for definitions
    34. 34. Development:
    35. 35. Needs subject list, key terms, controlled vocabulary
    36. 36. Testing with content experts for relevance of search results</li></ul>25<br />

    38. 38. Ok, let’s think big again…<br />27<br />
    39. 39. What do you now wish were possible with MIT OCW?<br />IMS LTI Support to write applications around content<br />Take bits from courses, and save/paste in a new course framework, including attribution and link – playlist of any kind of course materials<br />Students can create their own environment and arrange content from different courses and add personal notes/comments<br />Add own annotations to course materials<br />28<br />
    40. 40. What do you now wish were possible with MIT OCW?<br />Framework to show curriculum tracks (pre-requisites, co-requisites)<br />Trace individual content through varieties of courses, this information builds across courses (flash forward/flash back)<br />Tools to allow students to manage their own learning—where they’ve been and where they’re going—saved in your own user account, portfolio-plus<br />Social community around content (learn with, ask questions, motivate, support network)<br />Recognition (formal or informal) for going through the materials<br />29<br />
    41. 41. What do you now wish were possible with MIT OCW?<br />Visual map of the content, and similarities between materials, and way to navigate through those materials<br />Let the way to navigate through the map be social (capture user activity, and suggest pathways)<br />30<br />
