  10. 10. Design of MOOCs • We created two separate packages of knowledge structured in a closed manner: • We produced original material: • Written. • Audiovisual, available in the YouTube account of Citizeu project. • We collected complementary information, documents and audio-visual sources. • This packages was proposed in independent units, so that the student could choose only those that were most useful to him. • Its content was structured for multiple accesses.
  11. 11. Dynamic of the course • The course is organized by weeks and each week the materials of a new lesson are made available to the students. • All the lessons have a similar structure: • Didactic guide, or objectives. In it, we briefly present the objectives we propose, to help to understand and deepen into the contents of the lesson. • Contents, or key ideas. They are: • A video lesson. • A PDF with the basic concepts. • Different Additional Contents, as videos, documents o web sites. • Activities, or weekly challenge: • Activities designed to promote online learning through the interaction of the participants. • Activities for evaluate the level of understanding of the contents.
  12. 12. Development of MOOCs • The six scheduled lessons of each course were developed during six consecutive weeks. • We offered to the students constant support and feedback: • On the scheduled dates. • Wen it was requested. • We interact with the students trough different social networks: • The web Participa Gijón CITIZEU: Stop Euroscepticism! • FACEBOOK. We created the Facebook Group “CITIZEU Mooc Course”. • TWITTER. We created different labels, one for each activity that we make through, and a generic one @asuntoseuropeos #CITIZEUMooc. • INSTAGRAM. We created a specific Instagram of the course: @gijoneuropaig, with different hashtags for each of the activities. • The Technical Consultations and other course Forums.
  13. 13. Methodology • We combine: • Self-learning: • Basic ideas simple and attractive. • Activities formulated for exciting curiosity. • Additional content for deepening. • Guided learning: • Didactic. • Technical. • We mix materials: • Provided by teachers. That is the more important in the first MOOC course. • Built through the interaction of the participants. That is the more important in the second MOOC course.
  14. 14. Students evaluation • There are a self-assessment questionnaire in each lesson: • In the first course it is just for the student to check for himself the degree of assimilation and learning. • In the second course, they represents the 30% of the evaluation. • In both, they are formed by multiple choice questions. • The final test is different in each of the courses: • The first MOOC course had a final questionnaire. • The second MOOC course has a Peer to Peer evaluation system. • The students who pass the test can obtain: • A certificate. • A badge to keep in a digital backpack.
  15. 15. Results • Students: • Edition in the MODLE platform of the University of Oviedo: large majority of students of this University. • Editions in UNIOVIX: students much more heterogeneous. • Discussion: • Less than expected. • Mostly trough the Forums. • Achievements: • We produced abundant learning materials. They will be offered as a closed downloadable course on the website of the Jean Monnet working group of the University of Oviedo. • The students evaluate the course with a score of 9.3/10. • The results will be analysed in the meetings with citizens in several European countries.
  16. 16. Conclusion • Project: • Represents a new form of knowledge transfer in our University. • It involves the integration of a university project with a European call, with the participation of different entities and international organizations. • It implies a new channel of dissemination of the research activity. • Direction and design: • It is perfectly possibly for a traditional professor to implement a MOOC course at the University. • The necessary effort may be too serious for an inexpert equip. • May be necessary some technical support. • Students: • Most of students are young people. • Students have a low tendency to participate.
  17. 17. THANK YOU VERY MUCH Patricia Herrero de la Escosura Ana Isabel González González
