Innovation in open online courses

George Siemens

In a few weeks, our edX course Data, Analytics, and Learning (#DALMOOC https://www.edx.org/course/utarlingtonx/utarlingtonx-link5-10x-data-analytics-2186 ) will start. We (Carolyn Rose, Dragan Gasevic, Ryan Baker, and I) have spent the last several months thinking through the course structure and format. This is a short overview of the innovations that we want to explore during the course. DALMOOC has been designed to model a distributed information structure.

Learning as Artifact Creation

George Siemens

This article and work with Stephen Downes formed subsequent development of MOOCs and learning analytics. Details regarding cognitive processes, teacher actions, learner mindsets, design models, and social interaction remain rudimentary. One student creates an image to detail the architecture of the course. It’s a new course. It’s a new course. How do artifacts contribute to, and take away from, the course content?

Connective Knowledge and Open Resources

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

The practical implementation of connectivism is the massive open online course, or MOOC. Rather, we encouraged people to create course content and to contribute to the course through their own websites, through discussion groups, communities, and and other forum they chose. We had about 170 blogs created to support the course, and we aggregated these using RSS – content syndication supporting online learning. It led to our first web-based course a year later.

Presentation to UNCTAD's Advisory Group on "Developing skills, knowledge and capacities through innovation: E-Learning, M-Learning, cloud-Learning"

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

We''ve discovered in recent offerings of online courses, people started out enthusiastically, but are unable to finish the course because they''ve run out of time. This is something that does not come from the online course, or even the online environment. Learning looks at the online course, as a course. What I mean by that is the traditional college/university course. learning in many respects begins as a set of course tools for web support.

The Rise of MOOCs

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Many of the ideas that go into a MOOC were around before CCK08 but that course marks the first time the format came together. These two courses were of course influenced by other work in the field - the concept of open education, in which Wiley was a pioneer, with a license preceeding the Creative Commons licenses, the open wiki, which of course was made famous by Wikipedia, and more. This is what enabled the 'massive' part of 'Massive Open Online Course'.

E-Learning Generations

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

( version française ) In recent years I have been working on two major concepts:first, the connectivist theory of online learning, which views learning as anetwork process; and second, the massive open online course, or MOOC, which isan instantiation of that process. The idea that books or courses could be broken down intosmaller chunks suggested to people that these chunks could be created in onecontext and reused in another context. One was the beginning ofopen online courses.

Sustainability and MOOCs in Historical Perspective

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

We're going to talk about the factors that led to the development of the Massive Open Online Course and Connectivism and the new phenomena in learning today. Distance learning therefore required the creation and distribution of learning content, of course packages that would support independent study. They had the model of the course packages, and they had the model of the classes. WebCT in English stands for "Web Course Tools." Of course, we had instant messaging.
