MOOC and Synthetic Cognition: non-technological challenges on the road


Published on

In this presentation are identified some of the new knowledge landscape trends (i.e. artificial intelligence, automated skills recognition tools, increasing demand for HE). The current knowledge recognition strategies implemented in the context of MOOCs open the landscape to explore more flexible ways of application and recognition of knowledge, regardless if it developed in formal or informal settings.

Name of the event: International MOOC Colloquium - 2nd Edition - The MOOC Identity #MOOCidentity organized by Federica Web Learning - Università degli Studi di Napoli Federico II

  16. 16. Questions for further conversations: •  What are we missing only delivering pdf and videos? •  How to offer education that open up the interest to continue learning? •  Can we reduce the gap between skill demand and education supply? •  WHAt capabilities are increasingly being replaced by ‘synthetic cognition’ (searching, selecting, organizing, recognition)? •  Disruption is not in the technology used but in focusing more in heutagogy rather than (only) on pedagogy
  17. 17. Are MOOC ready to respond to this changing knowledge landscape? @cristobalcobo
