The Quality of Learning in MOOCs – USG Faculty Development Webinar
January 6, 2015 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
Webinar via Blackboard Collaborate
Presenter – Thomas C. Reeves, PhD, The University of Georgia
Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) and other forms of open education are viewed as positive disruptive innovations by some and as threats to traditional education by others. The discord over MOOCs is especially evident in the higher education sector. This presentation examines the evidence for and against MOOCs, especially with respect to the quality of the learning accomplished by participants. The presentation also describes inconsistencies in learning assessment in MOOCs, and suggests innovative assessment strategies based on authentic tasks. Finally, recommendations are made for advancing the efficacy and impact of MOOCs through educational design research.
