  • Why?
  • IT’S  NOT  AS  EQUAL  AS  IT  SEEMS While  the  cost  per  credit  hour  is  comparable,   ge=ing  an  online  degree  saves  on  many  of  the  expenses   that  are  inherent  within  a  traditional  degree   such  as  gas,  room  and  board,  textbooks,  and  many  more.
  • interactionFosters  more                                                                              among  students  and  instructors   student-centered Enables                                                                                            teaching  approaches Discussion  Boards  extend  the  boundaries  of  the  classroom  to  24/7 eLearning  can  accommodate  different  learning  styles More  student-­‐‑to-­‐‑student  and  faculty-­‐‑to-­‐‑student  communication Self-­‐‑paced  learning  modules  allow  students  to  work  at  their  own  pace 24/7 accessibility to  course  materials Just-­‐‑in-­‐‑time  methods  to  assess  and  evaluate  student  progress Encourages  students  to  take  responsibility  for  their  learning

  • What exactly is a MOOC ?
  • The  mind  is  not  a  vessel  to  be  filled but  a  fire  to  be  kindled ~Plutarch
  • Other trends of note…
  • #etmooc  is  a  ‘Connectivist’  MOOC   (‘cMOOC)  that  is  designed  around  a  few   key  principles: The  course  is  developed  with  a  weak  ‘centre’.  While  etmooc.org  will  provide  a  level  of  aggregation,  detail,  and  direction,  the  majority  of  interactions  are  likely  to  occur  within  groups  &  networks,  facilitated  through  various  online  spaces  &  services. Participants  are  strongly  encouraged  to  develop  their  own  reflective,  learning  spaces.  We’re  hoping  that  every  learner  in  #etmooc  creates  and  maintains  their  own  blog  for  continuous  reflection,  creativity,  and  resource  sharing. Sharing  and  network  participation  are  essential  for  the  success  of  all  learners  in  #etmooc.  Thus,  we’ll  be  needing  you  to  share  your  knowledge,  to  support  and  encourage  others,  and  to  participate  in  meaningful  conversations. Together,  we”ll  make  #etmooc  a  valuable  learning  experience  for  all  participants.
  • If  we  teach  today  the  way  we  were  taught  yesterday we  aren’t  preparing  students  for  today  or  tomorrow. ~  John  Dewey
