as we know now MOOCs are 'classes offered on MOOC platforms. – these are no longer MOOCs, still, use MOOC platforms to reach globally, so, are still called MOOCs – have become OOcs –M in MOOCs is missing in reality in most MOOCs.
The number of classes on MOOC platforms is increasing, the same classes are offered on multiple MOOC platforms with their own rules and fees. All these have resulted in diminishing class participation by learners and social learning is no longer present in most— so-called MOOCs. So, let us hope Class Central can inspire social learning on MOOCs, by inspiring various stakeholders to get involved on the CC platform to revive the social learning experience.
what can we do to revive the social learning experience among current and future MOOC learners?
Here are some thoughts —please add your own…
We can share information about the CC cohort to our social networks
hope CC inspire more instructors to get involved in cohorts to revive SS in their classes
inspire MOOC providers to give full audit access (not restricted) to all classes — open to all, with actually bring the value of the class, as well as the MOOC platform and do greater good for many
please share more ideas/thoughts ----we each learner can do our own best to promote cohort movement …! Cohorts are powerful, as, we are here to learn because we love learning, and spread this love…!
