Beyond and Between “Traditional” MOOCs: Agile and Just-in-Time Learning (30m)

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

This study will compare the use of Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) as active, instructor-led, open-facilitated courses with their use as archived, self-directed learning resources. Having offered three popular introductory MOOCs in computer programming and statistics, we have discovered that after an open facilitated course cohort has progressed through scaffolded activities and graded assessment, many learners persist in the course and new registrants continue to join the archived course. This study will investigate the potential and purpose of archived MOOCs as learning tools for beyond and between scheduled instructor-led sessions. In order to understand potential differentiated usage patterns and learning outcomes, learner demographics, motivations, activities and completion, and levels of satisfaction will be examined and compared across the two models of content delivery.
