Neil Morris advances the University's MOOC agenda
Professor Neil Morris has recently written a guide for learners on Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) which has been published by Palgrave MacMillan. The guide is freely available.
Neil recently gave a talk about MOOCs at an 'Inside Government' conference in London entitled:
The Future of Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) in Further and Higher Education
The rapid proliferation of ‘Massive Open Online Courses’ (MOOCs) is generating important debate around the future of Higher Education (HE) and the significance of the current ‘digital moment’ for HE. Offering online courses that use the internet to deliver video lectures, interactive exercises and automated testing to allow distance learning for students, MOOCs offer universities the opportunity to diversify the curriculum and explore alternative learning techniques.
Neil has already written an opinion piece about quality assurance of MOOCs in a Quality Assurance Agency (QAA) publication on Talking about Quality entitled: Massive misalignment: the challenges of designing and accrediting MOOCs
Neil will be speaking at the QAA annual conference on 26th June, 2014.
