ABOUT MOOC • The first mooc was offered by HASTAC in 2006-2007 and they called it Introduction to Artificial Intelligence” but they were not recognized • The term MOOC was coined in 2008 by Dave Cormier of the University of Prince Edward Island and Senior Research Fellow Bryan Alexander of the National Institute for Technology in Liberal Education • Selastian Trun and Peter Norving developed mooc in 2011 which was considered as the first mooc to be known • The first one was launched in 2008. It was called ‘Connectivism and Connective Knowledge/2008’ (CCK8), created by educators Stephen Downes and George Siemens. • Mooc is said to be like a long distance learning since the 1990s • This means that mooc has actually existed but its was not massive and not done online

  9. 9. TRANSFER MOOCS ◦ Take existing courses and decant them into a MOOC platform, on the pedagogic assumption that they are teacher-led. ◦ These courses deliver content primarily through “talking heads” videos and assigned readings and they assess learning outcomes using online quizzes and tests.

  10. 10. MADE MOOCs ◦ Make use of video, avoiding talking heads . They also tend to have more of a formal, quality driven approach to the creation of material and more challenging assignments, problem solving and various levels software-driven interactive experiences. ◦ Their videos often feature whiteboard problem-solving sequences rather than talking heads. These courses have an interactive approach that goes beyond just knowledge transfer: students interact with the software by solving problems and receiving instant feedback.
  11. 11. SYNCHRONOUS MOOCs and ASYNCHRONOUS MOOCs SYNCHRONOUS MOOCs • Have a fixed start date, tend to have fixed deadlines for assignments and assessments and a clear end date ◦ Everyone follows the same class schedule and may even be required to log in at the same time ◦ This helps motivation and aligns teachers and students ASYNCHRONOUS MOOCs ◦ Are entirely self-paced.
