Topics:

The arrival of Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) presents a lot of new challenges to those who build them, such as:

  • Pedagogical: personalisation, individualisation, collaboration
  • Legal: copyright, privacy (in the Swiss context)
  • Technological: cloud, multimedia
  • Strategic: questions of branding, implementation

It also presents very large opportunities:

  • Educational research
  • Easier collaboration between professors, networking among students
  • Outreach efforts (news, high schools, young graduates)
  • Citizen science
  • Business (corporate continuing education)

The aims of this SIG is to support those who want to implement MOOCs to achieve their goals more easily by sharing information, expertise and services.

 

Meetings – coming up

  • The next meeting will be in autumn 2018. Members of the SIG will receive an invitation.
