MOOC didactics Matters. A hands-on vision for MOOCs and Connected Learning Practices in Europe

1,035 views

Published on

Demand for MOOCs across Europe both among academics and practitioners is high. Our Interest is in bringing up ideas for conceptualizing MOOCs that focus on the learner and the learning community tending to put lower priority on instructional aspects instead promoting pedagogical approaches to use digital chances for problem-oriented learning, interest-driven learning and collaboration. The pMOOC format introduced in this paper puts collaborative online projects in the center of learning. Openness is described by four factors (1) Enrolment, (2) Licensing/OER, (3) Infrastructure, (4) and Pedagogics. Conclusions are that Open Learning Initiatives in Europe have an immense chance for the support of the development of competencies among its learners by bringing practitioners from the field together with students and academia. Therefore MOOCs have to value the diversity of its learners and help learners to develop digital literacies and connecting practices online.
