Move Over MOOCs — Collaborative MOOC 2.0 Is Coming
from University World News
Massive open online courses — MOOCs — offered by top universities have expanded worldwide over the last three years, gaining students globally for courses designed in the United States and elsewhere and disseminated globally on platforms like Coursera, edX and the British-based FutureLearn. Their spread has the potential to disrupt the model of bricks-and-mortar universities each with their own courses — a theme much discussed in academia. But a new type of MOOC — dubbed MOOC 2.0 — could even disrupt the way courses are devised, altering the top-down university designed curriculum and the professor-to-student course structure that is still part of the MOOC model.
