Box Hill Institute Niche MOOCs

  1. 1. Box Hill Institute Niche MOOCs Presenter: Aliki Komps Blended eLearning Solutions 9286 9485
  2. 2. Introduction The Box Hill Institute niche MOOCs have been borne from a key strategic objective provided by the Board of Box Hill Institute Group. Aim: Create a set of six Box Hill Institute ‘taster’ MOOCs. Project Commencement: April, 2014. Progress: Learning design completed. Multimedia development is in full swing.
  3. 3. Initial Stages Required the development of a strategy that was considerate of stakeholders and the BHI environment. - Teaching centres across the Institute were invited to propose a MOOC topic. It was identified that topics proposed would be assessed against the following three criteria: • A Return On Investment (ROI); • Used as a mode of delivery for distribution of critical data; and/or • Unique online course and could be used as a pull strategy for enrolments into related paid courses
  4. 4. Initial Stages A number of teaching centres put their MOOC proposals forward. A competitive analysis was completed: • Each proposal was assessed based on the three criteria outlined from the outset. • We also worked actively with the Box Hill Institute Group Marketing area to identify the MOOCs that would have high interest or value.
  5. 5. MOOCs Selected for Creation • A Day in the Life of a Hairdresser • Introduction to eLearning Design • Introduction to Horses • Canine DNA Evidence Collection • Melodic Improvisation • Network Addressing and Subnetting • AMCA – r22 to r32 A healthy cross section of niche MOOC taster courses were selected for creation.
  6. 6. Communication The MOOCs project contains a number of relevant stakeholders. • After the courses had been selected, a fortnightly face-to-face MOOCs Steering Committee Meeting was created to regularly bring together relevant Project Managers, Teaching Centre Managers, Subject Matter Experts and Learning Designers. • Learning Designers had a weekly meeting to discuss approach, consistency, ideas, content, hurdles, tools, style, etc. • Learning Designers had regular meetings with the subject matter experts. • Handover from Learning Design to Multimedia was provided in a face-to-face manner with ongoing consultation. COMMUNICATION IS KEY
  7. 7. Platform Learning Management System (LMS) At this point we have selected Moodle as our LMS because: • Open source learning platform • It’s a Learning Management System that provides us with control over the interface and allows us to style the interface • We have decided to run Moodle 1.9 because of its quick load times • We have experience with Moodle and it’s the Institute Learning Management System
  8. 8. Learning Design
  9. 9. A Departure from Online Unit of Competency Creation • Different target audiences dependent on specific MOOC – local and global • Highly Visual • Graphics • Film/Video • Very limited text • NO assessments • Activities and Interactivities

  19. 19. Hurdles / Healthy Learning Experiences • Communication is key across stakeholders • Timeliness • Competing priorities for each stakeholder • Limited budget = limited resources and resourcing • First attempt at creating niche taster MOOCs – restricted precedence on level playing field
  20. 20. Looking to the Future • Our aim is to complete the set of six niche taster MOOCs by July 2014. • These will act as a healthy springboard moving forward. • The MOOCs will be monitored and evaluated against their specific intended purposes. • Reflection will occur. • Improvements to existing MOOCs will be actioned and updated based on evaluation and reflection. • The entire process will have the scope to evolve, grow and improve.
