In Campus Technology Michelle Fredette has written an interesting article about How to Convert a Classroom Course Into a MOOC.
The sheer size and diversity of the student body in a MOOC force faculty to use strategies for planning, teaching, and assessment that differ radically from those used in traditional classes.
She has three main issues that she discusses:
- A Different Student Body
- Plan Meticulously
- React to the Data
I recognise the issues she discusses. The task of converting a course for MOOC use is not as simple as taking recordings of class lectures and cutting them up into digestible segments.
