Article Review – What Is Being Learned From MOOCs? New Report Takes Stock

01 May

Casey Fabris wrote an article in The Chronicle of Higher Education. The article discussed a report by the MOOC Research Initiative, funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. The report found five key research themes with MOOCs: student engagement and learning success, MOOC design and curriculum, self-regulated learning and social learning, social-network analysis and networked learning, and motivation, attitude, and success criteria. The findings of the MOOC Research Initiative are just one section of a larger report called “Preparing for the Digital University: A Review of the History and Current State of Distance, Blended, and Online Learning”.
