  1. 1. MASSIVE ONLINE CORSE MOOC
  2. 2. MOOC
  3. 3. The first MOOC came from the open educational resource movement. The term MOOC was coined in 2008 by Dave Cormier of the university of prince Edward Island and senior research fellow Bryan Alexandra of the national institute for the technology in liberal education in response to a coarse called connectivism and connection knowledge.
  4. 4. Other MOOC Jim Groom from the university of Mary Washington of York collage, hosted MOOCs through several universities. early MOOCs didn’t rely on posted resources learning management system and structure that mix the learning management with more open resource.
  5. 5. Continue……. O Then other universities launched MOOC coarse in their universities. Some of the coarse were free and can be easily accessible online and many students enrolled reaching the number 160000 and 2012 MOOC was launched for high school student for the preparation for the SAT sub test in test in Biology. The books were free online but could not be printed or copied which means they could be read in class only.
  6. 6. Some countries O In some countries such as Ireland MOOC was used to provide free/online certificates/diploma coarse to 2 million learners worldwide. This became one of the top 20 E-learning companies in Europe as judge by an expert. O
  7. 7. South africa O The University of South Africa (UNISA), which specialises in learning via correspondence, celebrated its 140th anniversary in 2013. In fact, UNISA is the world’s very first correspondence university – offering tuition via printed study guides, audio cassette tapes and, more recently, online material.
  8. 8. Continue…….. You could say that South Africa got something of a head start on MOOCs, offering students top- notch education with very limited face-to-face instruction! Other organisations to realise the value and scope of online education for the South African context include GetSmarter – an online education company which partners with leading educational institutions to offer a variety of courses.
  9. 9. MOOCs assessment method O The two common methods of MOOC assessment are machine-graded, multiple choice quizzes or tests and peer review written assignment. Peer review is often based upon simple answers. These rubric which guide the grader and how many points awarded in different answers.
  10. 10. Moocs reliability O Cary Nelson, former president of the American Association of University Professors claimed that MOOCs are not a reliable means of supplying credentials, stating that "It’s fine to put lectures online, but this plan only degrades degree programs if it plans to substitute for them."
  11. 11. Continue…… O Sandra Schroeder, chair of the Higher Education Program and Policy Council for the American Federation of Teachers expressed concern that "These students are not likely to succeed without the structure of a strong and sequenced academic program."
  12. 12. Challenges and criticisms The MOOC Guide lists 5 possible challenges for collaborative-style MOOCs: 1.Participants must create their own content. 2.Digital literacy is necessary. 3.Time and effort required from participants.
  13. 13. Continue…… 4.It is organic, which means the course will take on its own trajectory (you have got to let go). 5.Participants must self-regulate and set their own goals.
  14. 14. Other concerns include: The 'territorial' nature of MOOCs with little discussion around: O 1) who enrols in/completes courses. O 2) The implications of courses scaling across country borders, and potential difficulties with relevance and knowledge transfer. O 3) The need for territory-specific study of locally relevant issues and needs.
  15. 15. O Effects on the structure of higher education were lamented for example by Moshe Y. Vardi, who finds an "absence of serious pedagogy in MOOCs", indeed in all of higher education. He criticized the format of "short, unsophisticated video chunks, interleaved with online quizzes, and accompanied by social networking."[clarification needed] An underlying reason is simple cost cutting pressures, which could hamstring the higher education industry.
  16. 16. O Cary Nelson, former president of the American Association of University Professors claimed that MOOCs are not a reliable means of supplying credentials, stating that "It’s fine to put lectures online, but this plan only degrades degree programs if it plans to substitute for them."
  17. 17. O Sandra Schroeder, chair of the Higher Education Program and Policy Council for the American Federation of Teachers expressed concern that "These students are not likely to succeed without the structure of a strong and sequenced academic program."
