Open education gives access to a world wide audience.
But also students who want to study at TU Delft come based on MOOC experience. We did not do a thorough research yet, but we see that our international enrolments have increased from +/- 20% more countries, the quality of applications is better (acceptance rate is higher) and up 25% resp. 40% in 2014 & 2015.
Besides access and reach of the MOOCs we also see a huge potential and impact of open and online education on our campus courses. Besides blended learning we now see a potential in other universities MOOCs
What do we see other universities do? Different initiatives to bring online education back in formal education programmes for credit.
Micromasters MIT (inverted admission), several alliances, Nano degrees, ASU Global freshman year, Charter Oak, ACE alternative credit project and Malaysia becoming the first country to create a platform to award credit recognition and transfer for MOOCs http://micromasters.mit.edu/ only the best students can enter continue application to MIT on campus course. http://gfa.asu.edu/ Arizona state university has students follow first year courses online via MOOCs (Their own MOOCs) https://www.edx.org/charter-oak charter Oak issues credits for courses offered by Berkeley and MIT (three courses in total) so no credits from the hosting university but from credit oak http://alternativecreditproject.com/ similar to charter oak http://www.nst.com.my/news/2016/01/122766/malaysia-become-first-country-develop-credit-recognition-policy-online-courses country level developing policy https://kiron.university/ An organizations with a mission to give refugees access to higher accreditated education, via partially online courses. We are talking to them about possibilities to have a improve access to higher education via for example an online linkage programme. However we need more partners (EU, other universities) to realize this big ambition.
Currently TU Delft aims at setting up an alliance with several international partners, like the University of Queensland, the University of British Columbia, EPFL, Rice University and Australian National University. Our shared ambition is to recognize and integrate MOOCs in (formal) campus education. This would mean that in the future any student registered at one of the partner universities can take any MOOC offered by these universities and be awarded formal Credits for it. <<Picture alliance airplane >> I believe starting an alliance is a the best way to start since you work based on trust among each other quality. And it’s easier to develop working agreements and easy to handle procedures.
Deze moet even inladen voordat hij vloeiend loopt Lessons learned Erasmus +. Why don’t we create a virtual exchange for our online courses and MOOCs, a virtual Erasmus +What should EU do? Facilitate the network to issue credits for MOOCs for example Erasmus + has brought us great experiences, learnings more mobility, improved network between universities, structured exchange of students and staff. This models also works due to clear framework of regulations, trust and necessary incentives.
Netwerk van universiteiten die elkaars MOOCs uitwisselen. In dit netwerk examens voor elkaar te organiseren, vaak lacunes, danwel werken aan noodzakelijke vereisten voor kwaliteitszorg, danwel incentives voor docenten en beperk het niet tot de wereld maar open het aan de wereld. Immers Virtueel neemt de belemmeringen van grenzen weg.
Use each others MOOCs to enrich education of our campus students and make international transfer of credits more easy
