CHAMP Math MOOC Meeting Feb 13 2014

  1. 1. MOOC Meeting CHAMP Feb. 13, 2014 MOOC Development
  2. 2. Agenda • Set a time table for work to be completed on our end within the due dates below. • Dates that were given to us • Beta launch date is June 23, 2014 • First half of content is due to Canvas by March 26 • Final half of content is due to Canvas by April 16 • Evaluate the current content, which is now in CCD’s D2L • What to keep, delete or contextualize • Discard content not needed • Contextualize concepts for Advanced Manufacturing • What concepts need contextualizing specifically for our needs • Discuss if we want to attach badges to skill attainment
  3. 3. Time Table for MOOC beta launch Math Listing goes live April 21 Basic Employability Listing goes live Aug 21 Credit for Prior Learning Listing goes live Dec 2014 June 2014 Beta test must be completed by end of Nov. 2014 Feb 2015
  4. 4. Typical MOOC registrant Average student: • lurks in the first MOOC registered, usually doesn’t complete the MOOC • predominately male • currently employed; in this country • they’re also older than you might expect. • Far more enrollees view them as a diversion than they do as a means to a college degree or a new job • Typically have a 2 or 4 year degree • Only allots 2-3 hours per week in 15 to 20 minute increments • Only completes 1 out of 4 MOOCs registered in • To take advantage of a MOOC • requires sufficient schooling to be able to follow college-level material, consistent access to the Web, reliable internet
  5. 5. MOOC Design Design for a course running 4-7 weeks • Cannot build the MOOC like an online course. • Must be designed for mobile devices • Compact Content with video length less than 3 minutes • Total time on task is 30 minutes including practice drills. Each learning “chunk” contains • Context-grabbing the students interest as well as provide relevance to material • Challenge- create small packages of learning which can be completed in 15 to 20 minutes • Activity-showing that they understand the content • Feedback-can be personal or automatic.
  6. 6. Evaluate the current content What needs added, deleted, and contextualized
  7. 7. Technical Math • Canvas has requested us to change title and refine course description to appeal to a broader audience. • Ideas on a “new” name • Career Math was suggested • My concern was could this name be confused with MAT107 for our students? • Description • Covers material designed for career technical or general studies students who need to study particular mathematical topics. Topics may include measurement, algebra, geometry, trigonometry, graphs, and/or finance.
  8. 8. Critical Evaluation of content Focus of this MOOC is not on teaching MAT108 competencies but: • Use as a tool to enable a student to “refresh” their knowledge of concepts to test out of MAT108 • Can be used as a supplemental resource to refer a struggling student to brush up on needed math skills • Think of content as “just in time” –what is the essential skill/knowledge does the Advance Machining student need in regards to the 17 competencies? • Do we really need everything in Numbers, Conversions and Measurements? • Conversions, Whole Numbers, Fractions, Decimals, Integers, Rational Numbers, Binary, Octal, and Hexadecimal numbers, metric system
  9. 9. Contextualized Content Should represent • Development teams • Machining (CCD, FRCC, PPCC, PCC) • Welding (CCD, LCC) • Engineering Graphics (PPCC, AIMS, CCD, Metro) • Electro-Mechanical (PCC, Metro) Cohorts and Leads • Electro-Mechanical--TBD • Engineering Graphics—TBD • EGT, ELT, MAC—Michelle Koster, PPCC • CAD, MTE—Rick Glesnor, CCD • AED, AAA, CIS, CHE, EIC, ENY, GEY, HIS, MAN, MAT, PHY, PRO, WEL, WTG--John Mangin, Bruce Beardsly, AimsCC • MET—Devi Kalla, MSU • Machining—George Newman, FRCC and Tony Rubino, CCD • Welding—Alyssa Ruiz—EGTC
  10. 10. If you have Material or Ideas…. • But have too much on your plate… • Send the material or ideas to and I will present them to the MOOC group.
  11. 11. Badges
  12. 12. Completion Certificate • Yes! • What is acceptable? • Completing all modules? • Completing at 70% Badges for skill attainment? • Do we want badges for all modules? • Or identify what skills are high priority, backwards design those skills to a competency, and award badge for competency?
