The Top 100 Tools for Learning 2012 list is revealed

Jane Hart

I suppose the difference between educational and enterprise workplace learning tools is inevitable - although it has not been so obvious in previous years – since education is about teaching cohorts of learners whilst corporate learning is still focused on creating self-paced online courses.

“Which universities will survive the age of Massive Open Online Courses?” You can get knowledge from an Internet course if you’re highly motivated to learn. But in real courses the students and teachers come together and create an immediate and vital community of learning. A real course creates intellectual joy, at least in some. I don’t think an Internet course ever will.

The 'Course' in MOOC

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Given the opportunity, these learners have a burning desire to 'complete' the course. In this sense, the concept of course completion doesn't really make sense - what is it to 'complete' joining a community? Perhaps the "C" in MOOC should be changed to mean "Community" in that case, because the concept of "course" does imply a sense of completion, i.e., something > with a beginning and an end which is determined by an entity besides the learner.

One was the beginning of open online courses. We had both seen them in operation in the past, and had most recently been influenced by Alec Couros’s online graduate course and David Wiley’s wiki-based course. What made these courses important was that they invoked the idea of including outsiders into university courses in some way. The course was no longer bounded by the institution.
