  13. 13. My Goals For the Course
  14. 14. Be an Introductory Course• We need low-stakes "pre-requisite" courses in Coursera • How to behave • How to use the software • How to write • Figure out technical issues • How to learn from others and help others learn....
  15. 15. Be an Open Learning Community• Open Source works well when there is a "Benevolent Dictator" • There needs to be real and enforced rules - but as few as possible • Those in power must not hide behind their power and must share their power with those who show the right behavior • Must make valued behaviors "infectious" / "amplified"
  16. 16. Teach the Teachers• I dont beleive that all students in the world should consider me their teacher in this space• I wrote a "book"- I want others to adopt it and re-mix it• Related to making a "learning community"
  17. 17. New York NY, Los Angeles CA,Ann Arbor MI, Wilmington, NC, Chicago IL, Washington, DC,Memphis, TN, Seattle WA, Seoul,Barcelona, London, Amsterdam http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JzNHvmSv8T
  18. 18. Cheating Detection• Thirty question exam• Ten questions gave full credit for some wrong answers• Total number of possible 30/30 answer keys = ~60,000• Tracked the pattern of answer keys over the two-week exam period
  19. 19. What is Next?
  20. 20. Concerns• There cannot be "one" vendor for these course materials• Closed Source - Slow Innovation• Lost sight of the move to Open Educational Resources• Remixability / translation / localiation
  21. 21. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VY-Ogkc7Mnw
  22. 22. Open Source - Open Standards• Open Source Course Authoring Environment• Open Source Open Book Authoring Environment• Open Source MOOC run-time Environment• Truly open and remixable educational resources
