Jochen Robes über Bildung, Lernen und Trends

The OU Did Not Invent MOOCs

Und Stephen Downes zählt auf: Kursgebühren, keine Verwendung von offenen Lernmaterialien (OER), eine zentrale Lernplattform. Es ist keine Frage, so Stephen Downes, dass die Open University für viele Menschen den Zugang zu Bildungs- und Lernressourcen erleichtert hat, aber MOOCs, nein, die haben sie nicht erfunden.

“So it’s simply incorrect to say that the Open University was offering MOOCs long before the term was coined. Certainly massive courses were offered before MOOCs. Even massive open online courses – I have described in the past examples of massive email courses offered in the 1990s. But the idea of a course developed to operate over a network of distributed sites and services, a course that scales by expanding to more sites, rather than by making one site bigger, a course that makes use of OERs more so than simply making them – that’s what became new with MOOCs.”
