Presentation delivered by 2 of the #oldsmoop collaboration team on 10 February 2014 at #eMOOCs2014 in Lausanne. Collaborative autoethnography employed to explore learner views of their own success in OLDSMOOC and role of connection, self-direction and adaptation, and self-efficacy emerged as key themes. Findings are that
1. in learning success is a personal construct,
2.that active connection appears to facilitate learning and persistence,
3. experience with these forms of learning increase self-efficacy which is then strengthened by further success and
4. adaptation of the curriculum is inherent and inevitable if success is personal.
Initial analysis of subsequent survey to establish if these themes are reflected more broadly OLDSMOOC participants suggest this holds.

  27. 27. Thoughts on: Experience “This was the second MOOC I completed (out of about 4). I've taken more MOOCs since then as a result of my good experience here.” “I consider myself tech-savvy, so I don't know how others may have reacted who are not as tech savvy as I.” “It was on me to be more effective, I couldn't manage to organize myself and participate even at the lowest levels. Yet, this is another thing I learnt about participating at MOOCs (self regulation!)”
