2016 – the year of MOOC hard questions

Posted on 11 December 2015 by jrobes

MOOCs sind mittlerweile ein buntes Spielfeld. Wir haben Hochschulen, Unternehmen, MOOC-Plattformen (die nicht mehr von MOOCs sprechen …), Geschäftsmodelle, Open Educational Resources, verschiedene MOOC-Konzepte, etc. Und, je nach Perspektive, kann man sich mit diesen “hard questions” identifizieren - oder eben nicht.

- “MOOC education won’t be as cheap as envisaged …”
- “Producing MOOCs is expensive …”
- “They’re not effective recruitment avenues …”
- “They’re not reaching the desired audiences …”

“I’m not predicting MOOCs will disappear. I think what the above indicates is that MOOCs will need to be targeted to meet very specific aims and audiences. Whether this more finessed approach is viable with the external, commercially driven enterprises who rely on a continual intake of new courses and learners remains to be seen. …  Sorry MOOC companies, I think the honeymoon is over.”
