Defining (c)MOOCs – The MOOC Model for Digital Practice
Rolin Moe, All MOOCs, All The Time
Trying to define a moving target like a MOOC is difficult to say the least; one need look no further than an effort by George Siemens, Dave Cormier, Bonnie Stewart and Alexander McAuley from 2010 as part of a Knowledge Synthesis Grant on the Digital Economy.  The definition provided is sound and thorough, and is an [...] [Link] Fri, 12 Oct 2012 01:47:05 +0000 [Comment]

Ease-of-use and Usefulness as Measures of Attrition in MOOCs (#CFHE12)
Rebecca - @rjhogue, RJ Hogue Consulting
As I reflect upon my participation in this MOOC (#CFHE12) and the MOOC that just ended (#MOBIMOOC), it occurs to me that MOOC design could be informed by the Technology Acceptance Model (TAM). The TAM indicates that the two most important characteristics in voluntary technology adoption are ease-of-use and perceived usefulness (Davis et al, 1989).

Back in the MOOChouse
Bryan Alexander, Bryan Alexander
I’m writing this as the CFHE12 MOOC ends its first week.  Experiencing the class is prompting me to blog more about it here (link to my earlier post on it) in an anti-Brian Lamb way.  That’s partly because MOOCs loom … Continue reading → [Link] Thu, 11 Oct 2012 20:50:23 +0000 [Comment]

Some thoughts on video and teaching
Scholz, Lifelong Learner » CFHE12
Satirists at The Onion take on the ubiquitous Ted Talks. In Time Magazine, online education entrepreneur Salman Khan writes: Each school day, millions of students move in unison from classroom to classroom where they listen to 50- to 90-minute lectures. Despite there being anywhere from 20 to 300 humans in the room, there is little actual [...] [Link] Thu, 11 Oct 2012 19:23:33 +0000 [Comment]

Change, Choice, and Long Term Thinking (or the Lack Thereof)
Jason Green, þoht-hord
In a brief blog post, Brian Mulligan suggests that the coming changes are good in that they will finally bring real competition to the higher ed sector.  The devil, of course, is in the details. The good scenario is that more … Continue reading → [Link] Thu, 11 Oct 2012 18:31:32 +0000 [Comment]

Thoughts from Day 1 ALN Panel Discussion
Apostolos K. ("AK"), Multilitteratus Incognitus
Well, yesterday afternoon I got fired up when listening to the final panel discussion of the day at Sloan-C's annual ALN conference. The panel was titled "Evolution or Revolution? What's Happening with "Traditional" Online Learning?" and I have broken down my thoughts by speaker.Jose Cruz (The Education Trust, US)This was a pretty interesting speaker, and he made a good point about putting "learning" back in "online learning". The speaker pointed out that governments was accountability... [Link] 2012-10-11T11:09:00.004-04:00 [Comment]

The Week The MOOCing Had To Stop #cfhe12
AJC, Science of the Invisible
You know things have reached an interesting point when complete strangers start commenting publicly on your MOOC addiction. That's happened to me three times this week (that I know about). I find this amusing. However, this was the week that the virtual world of MOOCs ran into the solid reality of life - the week the MOOCing had to stop. I've had so much fun with face to face teaching this week (and rather less fun teaching online wrestling with IE8) that I just haven't had time ... [Link] Thu, 11 Oct 2012 08:15:00 +0000 [Comment]
