Practical Guidance from #MOOC Research: Student Diversity http://ow.ly/POclb #HarvardX
I've recently concluded two years as a research fellow at HarvardX. To bring things to a close, last week I held a workshop with course developers looking at the question: What have we learned from the last two years of MOOC research that could help improve the design of courses?

Put yourself in the student seat again. Empathy is the #1 Reason College Teachers Should Take A #MOOC http://ow.ly/BiKay @skilledup
A common joke among college teachers is that our students “get younger every year.” This fall we will marvel that our students were born in the year Bill Clinton ran for a second term, Madeleine Albright was appointed the first female secretary of state, the Unabomber was arrested and Dolly the cloned sheep was born. …

Thoughtful critique of individual MOOC courses and the evolving MOOC landscape.
Introduction
MOOC News and Reviews is an online publication devoted to thoughtful critique of individual MOOC courses and to discussion of the evolving MOOC landscape. We are independent and user-centric, and our goal in every review is to answer for readers, “What will I experience in this course and how will it impact my life?”

We are a multi-author blog striving to provide:

  1. A comprehensive and authoritative resource for insight about individual courses and for commentary on developments in the MOOC world.
  • Essays that are in-depth.
  • Inclusion of voices and perspectives reflecting the global diversity of the MOOC student body.
  • Attention to lesser-known MOOC platforms.
  • A consistent focus on the interests of our audience – students, teachers and the institutional partners of MOOC providers. We want to address the questions students are asking – if and how a given course or platform will help them achieve their goals.
  • Transparency. Our authors use their real names, are open about their biases and limitations, credit their sources and then make their case.
