What If The Problem Isn’t With MOOCs But Something Else?

Posted on 01 June 2015 by jrobes

Studierende müssen motiviert werden, um zu lernen, um an einer Sache “dran zu bleiben”. MOOCs, so ein Vorwurf, schaffen das nicht. Hohe Abbrecherquoten sprechen eine deutliche Sprache. Aber vielleicht, so Matt Crosslin, liegt der Fehler ja in einem System, das ganz auf extrinsische Motivation in der Bildung baut?

“What if MOOCs are just a mirror that shows us the sociocultural problems we don’t want to deal with in our system?
What if the problem is not with the learners, but the way they have been programmed through the years? Grades, credits, failure, tuition, fees, gold stars, extra recess for good grades, monetary rewards, etc are all programmed into learners from a young age.”
