This article on learning portfolio gives useful information for an academic like me who has been implementing portfolio among our learners. Ours are the medical students and the portfolio designed to them is found useful and improving them in many aspects as we gather from their feed back. Ours is still a paper based an this article make us to think designing an e portfolio.

Nice Willem, thank you for sharing. I think the concept of blended teaching is really strong! The integral approach is often overlooked. It’s complex because it’s connected, in order to understand how thinks to change you have to understand these connections.

When you share knowledge, you do not lose anything but gained . It has been my claim for the last 25 years that schools with the same interests should share all their courses among their students . Sure sharing schools should be at the same calibre.

Very nice!

Exhibits 1-6 were generated using the person_course table, a secondary dataset produced from the raw edX SQL table dumps and tracking logs, using the open-source ed×2bigquery tool (×2bigquery).

Exhibit 9 was produced from the time_on_task tables made using this module of ed×2bigquery:×2bigquery/blob/master/ed×2bigquery/ .

Exhibit 5 was made using Gephi, and a Stata do-script which generated course-course network flows, from person_course.

We intend to continue making available such data analysis and processing tools, and hope they enable further understanding of MOOC trends and behaviors, and added comparisons such as yours.

Complimenten Willem! Met een achtergrond van 10 jaar (2005-2015) in online educatie voor de University of Maryland, heb ik mij sinds 2012 hard gemaakt voor moocs in Noord Nederland. Gelijk met jou begonnen dus. Ik zal je de bijzondere antwoorden en opmerkingen van beleidsmakers, strategen en Raden van Bestuur besparen. Je zal ze ook gehoord hebben. Echter, feit is dat Delft en Leiden excelleren op het gebied van moocs. Well done!!!

This was already announced in December last year. I was wondering then (via Twitter) “This way MOOC is turning into non-open courseware?” The “?” can be interpreted as rhetorical ;-).

Good to blog about this! In Delft we have also involved our Editors (engaging them in a breakfast meeting, sending out a questionnaire). We keep a strong voice in NL, though we also recognize that our (93) Delft Editors have their own community and can choose their way to make their voice heard. (One minor detail - the first milestone we have in front of us is 60% in 2018. )
