  • 1. About FLOSS Projects as early MOOCs A comparison of two ways of acquiring knowledge and skills over the Internet Gregorio Robles, Hugo Plaza-Garc´es, Jes´us M. Gonz´alez-Barahona grex@gsyc.urjc.es GSyC/Libresoft, Universidad Rey Juan Carlos EDUCON 2014, Istanbul, April 4 2014 Gregorio Robles, Hugo Plaza-Garc´es, Jes´us M.

Gonz´alez-Barahona FLOSS Projects as early MOOCs
  • 3. About Goal of our paper FLOSS development can be seen as an early MOOC. What can we learn if so? Gregorio Robles, Hugo Plaza-Garc´es, Jes´us M. Gonz´alez-Barahona FLOSS Projects as early MOOCs
  • 4. About Audience Who should/could be interested in this talk? MOOC providers MOOC developers, in order to create tools Instructors who want to take ideas for their MOOC Gregorio Robles, Hugo Plaza-Garc´es, Jes´us M. Gonz´alez-Barahona FLOSS Projects as early MOOCs
  • 5. About Why FLOSS About FLOSS FLOSS projects can be massive (> 1, 000 developers and contributors) FLOSS projects are open (and free, as in free speech) The activity is mainly performed on-line Geographically distributed (i.e., multicultural) They have been around for at least 20 years FLOSS engagement FLOSS survey 78% of developers join a FLOSS community “to learn and develop new skills” 67% of the developers continue their participation to “share knowledge and skills” 30% state they participate to improve their career opportunities Gregorio Robles, Hugo Plaza-Garc´es, Jes´us M. Gonz´alez-Barahona FLOSS Projects as early MOOCs
  • 6. About Comparison Comparison FLOSS projects MOOCs Learning process Informal Formalized Learning goal Implicit Explicit Roles Many roles Few roles Interaction Community-based xMOOCs, cMOOCs Starting time Anytime Sometimes limited Success Win-win even if small Usually complete course Specialization Possible Usually not possible Analytics Mature; accessible Early stages; accessible? Table: Summary of learning in FLOSS projects and MOOCs Gregorio Robles, Hugo Plaza-Garc´es, Jes´us M. Gonz´alez-Barahona FLOSS Projects as early MOOCs
  • 7. About Organization / specialization The onion model (Crowston & Howison, 2004) Gregorio Robles, Hugo Plaza-Garc´es, Jes´us M. Gonz´alez-Barahona FLOSS Projects as early MOOCs
  • 8. About Joining / integration Lots of research on FLOSS joining / integration (i.e., learning): Joining script (von Krogh et al.) Time from first contribution to part of core: 30 months (Herraiz et al.) Activities that determine who gets integrated more often into the project (Gharehyazie et al.) Software analytics to identify mentors among experience developers (Canfora et al.) Gregorio Robles, Hugo Plaza-Garc´es, Jes´us M. Gonz´alez-Barahona FLOSS Projects as early MOOCs
  • 9. About Some, interesting Outcomes Many software development analytics repositories for researchers from researchers “Raw” data Processed data Higher-level methods How do developers specialize (Basilescu et al.) Assess candidates from GitHub (Capiluppi et al.) Gregorio Robles, Hugo Plaza-Garc´es, Jes´us M. Gonz´alez-Barahona FLOSS Projects as early MOOCs
  • 10. About Summary FLOSS can be considered as learning environments To some extent they can be considered as early MOOCs There is lot of research on how FLOSS developers got integrated The educational community can borrow some ideas from FLOSS to use them in MOOCs Gregorio Robles, Hugo Plaza-Garc´es, Jes´us M. Gonz´alez-Barahona FLOSS Projects as early MOOCs
