Decription
As new digital forms of informal and formal learning proliferate, there is an increasing need to better understand how people in different regions of the world are implementing massive open online courses (MOOCs) and open educational resources (OERs). Even more importantly, educators, researchers, politicians, and countless others want to grasp what the outcomes of these initiatives are and how they can be improved. So, along with the current tidal wave of e-learning changes, those fostered by MOOCs and open education have caused institutions and organizations to grapple with issues of accreditation, credentialing, quality standards, innovative assessment, and learner motivation and attrition, among numerous other areas of concern. 

This preconference symposium undertakes to explore and probe unique implementations of MOOCs and open education across regions and nations. We will also focus on the various opportunities and dilemmas presented in this new age of technology-enabled learning. What are the different delivery formats, interaction possibilities, grading schemes, and business plans? Symposium participants will explain the MOOC and open education trends in their respective locales, share key research directions and findings, and provide suggestions and recommendations for the near future. Symposium facilitators will help participants bond and form communities of learners.

Goals
  • Understand a range of MOOC initiatives and open education projects around the world
  • Understand emerging trends in e-learning as well as future plans and visions
  • Learn how culture interacts with e-learning across regions of the world
  • Grasp challenges facing organizations and countries in implementing MOOCs 
  • Meet fellow e-learning instructors, researchers, administrators, government officials, instructional designers, consultants, etc.
  • Enjoy a day of listening, reflecting, discussing, thinking, and conversing with new colleagues and friends.
