  1. 1. MOOC PRESENTATION
  2. 2. WHAT IS MOOC ALL ABOUT? • A Massive Open Online Course is an online course aimed at unlimited participation and open access via the web.
  3. 3. In addition to traditional course materials such as videos, readings, and problem sets, MOOCs provide interactive user fora that help build a community for students, professors, and teaching assistants (TAs). MOOCs are a recent development in distance education. In simple words mooc is a course of study made available over the Internet without charge to a very large number of people: anyone who decides to take a MOOC simply logs on to the website and signs up.

  6. 6. What is the MOOC’s history?
  7. 7. Before the Digital Age, distance learning appeared in the form of correspondence courses, broadcast courses and early forms of e- learning. By the 1890s correspondence courses on specialized topics such as civil service tests and shorthand were promoted by door-to-door salesmen. Broadcast radio was new in the 1920s and with programs that were free to audiences of any size. By 1922, New York University operated its own radio station, with plans to broadcast practically all its courses. Other schools followed, including Columbia, Harvard, Kansas State, Ohio State, NYU, Purdue, Wisconsin, Utah and many others. Students read textbooks and listened to broadcast lectures, while mailing in answers to test.
  8. 8. At many universities in the 1980s classrooms were linked to a remote campus to provide closed-circuit video access for some students. In 1994, James J. O'Donnell of the University of Pennsylvania taught a seminar over the Internet, using gopher and email, on the life and works of St. The short lecture format used by many MOOCs developed from "Khan free archive of snappy instructional videos. The course was open to all participants who could have access to radio and the internet. Thinking how could the technology used back then accommodate all these social media
  9. 9. Different types of MOOCs C Academics, Non profits, Individuals Constructivist, Connectivist approach Many-to-many (Dialogue, Peer2Peer interactions) Informal learning Collaborative, peer assessment Rich social media Drive towards openness Network building, collaboration Ad hoc learner space X Major Universities Behaviourist, Cognitvist approach One-to-many (Student/Content, Teacher/Student interactions) More formal learning Coordinated assessments and quizzes (often automated) Social media used Open to join, but not all content Organised group work Fixed Platform

  11. 11. How is MOOC used in terms of education? • E-learning is more like face-to-face teaching and learning; it is an effective distance way of education to take place. As for MOOC is it a broad educational tool that motivate teachers to explore and innovate methods effective teaching. For learners it create and environment to explore many learning opportunities.
  12. 12. How is MOOC important to me as a student teacher? • Designing and facilitating online courses with a diverse student population is a challenge for new, as well as experienced online teachers. This course invites your critical reflection on the methods of online instruction; beliefs and potential bias of the online learner; policies and rules and how they align with course objectives; tone and the purpose of communication. I have collected readings and experiences of practice from other online teachers and students to provide a foundation for E-learning on my teaching field. As a teacher mooc is the tool to create effective lessons as there is more content online.
  13. 13. • I think MOOCs, or some adaptation thereof, will be the future of higher education. • As many instructors are finding out, teaching a MOOC is not that different from teaching a face-to-face course -- at least the kind where you stand in front of a large auditorium
  14. 14. The benefits of MOOC 1.Appropriate for any setting that has connectivity (Web or Wi-Fi) 2.Any language or multiple languages 3.Any online tools 4.Escape time zones and physical boundaries 5.Produce and deliver in short timeframe (e.g. for relief aid) 6.Contextualized content can be shared by all 7.Informal setting 8.Peer-to-peer contact can trigger serendipitous learning 9.Easier to cross disciplines and institutional barriers 10.Lower barriers to student entry 11.Enhance personal learning environment and/or network by participating 12.Improve lifelong learning skills
  15. 15. My interests
  16. 16. • For mathematics I interested in process of calculus that is closely related to differentiation–integration. You will learn new methods and rules for solving definite and indefinite integrals, including the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus. Then you will apply these rules to find such things as the position function for an object and the average value of a function. • In science the interest is on the linear momentum p of a particle is defined as the product of its mass m and its velocity v. This vector equation is equivalent to three component scalar equations, one along each of the coordinate axes.
