MOOCs Part 1

This event took place on 13th March 2013 at 10:00am (10:00 GMT)


10:00– Presenter: Martin Weller (IET)  MOOCs - the future of education or old wine in new bottles? This talk will look at the history of MOOCs, and explore their potential, the issues that surround them and draw on the experience of opening up part of IET's MA as a MOOC.

10:30– Presenters: Simon Cross and Yishay Mor (IET ) OLDS MOOC: design, evaluation and badges. The Open Learning Design Studio MOOC 'Learning Design for a 21st Century Curriculum' was funded by JISC as part of a benefits realisation programme and is intended to build on the success of the Open University Learning Design Initiative (OULDI) and other JISC funded curriculum design and delivery projects. The structure of the MOOC reflects a proposed process for a design inquiry project. In such a process, designers identify a (learning/curriculum) design challenge, explore it to gain an understanding of its context and driving forces, generate possible solutions, implement a solution and reflect on the process as a whole and its outputs. In this talk we will give a quick overview of the MOOC design and presentation, and focus on initial outcomes from our evaluation and the badging strategy we implemented.
