Vous trouvez ci-joint la présentation de l'AUF faite lors de la conférence internationale sur les MOOC organisée à Lausane du 10 au 12 février 2014.

  1. 1. From e-Learning to MOOCs : The Challenges for Certification Case of Developing Countries Pierre-Jean Loiret, Didier Oillo (AUF, Paris) Richard Canal, Mejdi Ayari (IFIC, Tunis) Annick Suzor-Weiner (AUF & Université Paris-Sud) AUF: 780 Members Universities in 98 countries, 6 Institutes Headquarter: Montréal – Rectorat: Paris 10 Regional Offices
  2. 2. Which « value » for a MOOC? Three types of motivations for a MOOC “learner”: 1. Curiosity, Knowledge, Competency…  Attestation (from the MOOC provider) 2. Asset to be hired or promoted  Badges? Certification? 3. Building block of an academic curriculum  Credits The value of a MOOC, especially for Employment, rests on insuring QUALITY: - Quality of the content: Accreditation? University Label? - Quality of the examination: Who? Where? Infrastructures? Supervision?
  3. 3. AUF: 22 years of e-learning experience, in constant evolution • 1991 1st Francophone Digital Campus, Dakar (25m2, 5 PC) • 2004 1st Call for launching on-line Degrees, with training and support for Universities in developing countries • 80 e-learning Bachelors or Masters, 35 delivered by universities in developing countries • 8000 degrees awarded in 10 years, 4000 e-scholarships • 42 Francophone Digital Campuses : free access, tutors, organization and supervision of examinations

  6. 6. What can be transferred to MOOCs? New challenges, some specific to developing countries: • Massive numbers of candidates: space? supervision? • No initial registration, late information on effective numbers and identities. • Fees? Money transfer? • Short exams (1 module) but frequent • On line? (security, power, connection…) • On paper? (digitalization of written tests)
  7. 7. AUF Experiments on Certifications « au Sud » • Go slowly… Experiments for a few MOOCS, not (yet) overcrowded, in a few countries. • December 2013: MOOC on Project management (Centrale Lille) Certification in Dakar & Ouagadougou • May 2014: MOOC on Technology of Data Networks (Telecom)  registration for certification in progress (early birds!) • Working groups with Francophone MOOCs providers: FUN (France Université Numérique), French Ministry of Higher Education and Research EPFL, RESCIF (Engineering Schools), OCEAN (FLOTs)…
  8. 8. Need for contact with the off-line world! As recognized by Coursera, which is opening « Global Learning Hubs » in many Englishspeaking developing countries, part of the on-line teaching process has to be put off-line when it comes to certification and quality.
  9. 9. Coursera and US Department of State launch Global Learning Hubs to bring online learning to the offline world
