  8. 8. History of MOOCs • MOOC is within networks that learning can generate quite interesting experiences. This leads us to the raise of MOOCs. The first MOOC was launched in 2008. It was called ‘Connectivism and Connective Knowledge/2008’ (CCK8), created by educators Stephen Downes and George Siemens. Building off a for-credit course at the University of Manitoba, Canada, this was the first class designed behind the acronym of ‘MOOC’ and used many different platforms to engage students with the topic, including Facebook groups, Wiki pages, blogs, forums and other resources.
  9. 9. History of MOOCs continue…… • Around 2,200 people signed up for CCK08, and 170 of them created their own blogs. The course was free and open, which meant that anyone could join, modify or remix the content without paying (although a paid, certified option was offered).
  10. 10. Types of MOOCs
  11. 11. Types of MOOCs • xMOOC. Is the type of the learning where by the learners share the ideas and there is only one instructor on the discussion • cMOOC. Hear the learners control their own learning, and they create their own goal. The learners are not assessed or tested weather they have met the outcomes that they where aiming at.
  12. 12. MOOCs I am actually going to do in this module Since I am the teacher of English and I enjoy it, I can design my own MOOC. In that MOOC I will discuss the English aspects such as essay writing and how to analyze the literature with my learners. The type of MOOC that I mostly prefer is xMOOC because I will be the instructor in that online discussion. After every discussion I will give the learners the assessment to reflect on weather we have reach the outcomes we have intended for. http://www.ed.ac.uk/studying/online-learning/moocs/moocs http://www.moocs.co/ http://reflectionsandcontemplations.wordpress.com/2012/08/23/what-isa-mooc-what-are-the-different-types-of-mooc-xmoocs-and-cmoocs/
