Preserving a MOOC - Russell Boyatt

  1. 1. “Preserving a MOOC” Developer Challenge Repository Fringe 2013 Russell Boyatt, University of Warwick russell.boyatt@warwick.ac.uk @russellb
  2. 2. MOOCs ● MOOC: “Massive Open Online Courses” ● Large numbers of students, potentially huge amounts of activity. ● Useful to gather this information for institutional archives, review by participants and future research. ● Institutions spending large amounts of money developing content. ● From a repository point of view – you've already met and are probably already preserving some of the content!
  3. 3. Capturing MOOC activity ● Reach into the (open) platforms to identify content and retrieve activity. ● Web scrapers for other platforms and to gather associated resources. ● Capture social media interactions (e.g. using Twitter streaming API) ● Identify content already present in your institutional repository. ● Build a package of material including XML representations of content. ● Push into a repository (with SWORD)
  4. 4. MOOC Preservation Toolkit OpenMOOC Visualisation of activity
  5. 5. Social media ● Twitter – streaming API, capturing all activity to a #mymooc hashtag. ● Blogs – EU FP7 Blogforever project is building a toolset for capturing and preserving blog data. ● Capture this data and preserve in repository alongside learning resources.
  6. 6. Preservation ● Learning resources developed for a MOOC can be captured and stored in a repository. ● Opportunity to explicitly state licensing information. ● Hold resources in standard platform and formats rather than rapidly developing MOOC platforms. ● Route to collecting learning resources in a form suitable for OER. ● Preserving a representation of learning activity on the MOOC.
