  9. 9. The development of MOOCs MOOCs  is rooted within the ideals of openness in education,  that knowledge should be shared freely,  and the desire to learn should be met without demographic, economic, and geographical constraints
  10. 10. BENEFITS FROM MOOCs  The ‘digital footprint’ of learners using the technology  can expand access to education, for those who are interested  provides opportunities for expanding access to HE to all and creates a space for  experimentation with online teaching and learning
  11. 11. What motivates the MOOC learner?  • To support lifelong learning or gain an understanding of the subject matter, with no particular expectations for completion or achievement,  • For fun, entertainment, social experience and intellectual stimulation,  • Convenience, often in conjunction with barriers to traditional education options,  • To experience or explore online education.  Surveys conducted by researchers at Duke University show that student motivations typically fell into one of four categories (Belanger andThornton, 2013)
  12. 12. MY FIELD OF INTEREST • My field of interest is Psychology because one of the good days I will be an educational psychologist • What I admire about educational psychologist is that they learn processes of understand individual differences in behaviour, personality, intellect, and self- concept. • Educational Psychologists are working side by side with psychiatrists, social workers, teachers, speech and language therapists, and counsellors in order to understand the questions being raised when combining behavioural, cognitive, and social psychology in the classroom setting
