  16. 16. ICDE: “Mind to MOOCs”– draft issues and recommendations Innovation. Recommendations regarding innovation and research related aspects. · Improve and innovate on pedagogical aspects: methodologies, content formats, and assessment. · Promote research about MOOCs. Innovation and new practices such as MOOCs can be improved with research. Suggested topics are learning analytics, sustainability issues, support services, assessment and credentialing/accreditation improvements, quality framework. · Re-locate innovation in the context of community and shared ownership and the creation of a participative and democratic learning environment, where values have equal importance with rates of profitable extraction. · Promote the generation of strategies to empower local human resources to develop innovations and quality standards at local levels. · Analyse funding and sustainability issues, considering different financing options and funding models. · Analyse recognition of credit possibilities. It requires previous work on guaranteeing authenticity (learner's identity) during the learning and assessment processes. Consider the inclusion of MOOCs into existing practices for PLAR (Prior Learning Assessment and Recognition). · Analyse the impact of MOOCs completion badges or certificates of employment, on the business of institution/corporate partnerships and on MOOC financing. Quality: Recommendations about improving MOOCs considering pedagogical and managerial related aspects. · Develop and integrate ICT into the learning process according to pedagogical recommendations. Implement learning analytics as a tool for improving courses. Connect the learning process and research for new knowledge and improvements. · Keep moving towards quality. Beyond quantity of MOOCs and users, the focus on quality is essential for sustainability. · Work on standards related to MOOCs: quality standards, technical standards and licensing standards. · Be aware of content and interoperability, the option and possibility for communication between platforms and moving content across platforms. Equity. Recommendations about MOOCs and their relationship to inclusion, social justice and social mission of open education. · Consider this disruptive initiative as an opportunity to rethink our role as universities. Both open and conventional higher education institutions should reflect on the influence of MOOCs in the re-appraisal of their roles. · Place equity as a foundation for renewed emphasis on rights and pro-active access to the potential goods (intellectual, economic and cultural) that education and MOOCs can
