OPEN EDUCATION: MARKING MOOCS

pauldrasmussen:

Great little Blog post on what I think is one of the biggest issues facing MOOC’s and the like. That is how does one show that one learnt anything, or that you are competent in the materials. From an organisational point of view I really dont care if you have done 100 MOOC’s on a range of subject, unless there has been proper assessment (and sorry peer review of your ‘work’ just doesnt cut it for me) then dont even both putting it in your resume as it is meaningless unless you can actually show that someone is willing to say that you are competent.

“Shouldn’t there be a dot on that ‘i’?” – Can machines help humans mark MOOCs?

The issue of how a mark MOOCs is a moot point at the moment.

As Europeans race to play catch up with their U.S. counterparts, (no educational body left behind!?), two glaring questions rise to the fore in many articles about these massive open online courses.

These are:

  • How do institutions make money from them?
  • Will MOOC students be able to gain credits for offline courses?

The answer to both these questions, in my view, ultimately rests on how the courses are evaluated.
