Dear Learning Community,
Recently, the openHPI team, which started the mooc.house platform some years ago, joined the European BizMOOC project.
We are glad about this opportunity to exchange our MOOC experience with colleagues and researchers all over Europe. We are aiming at merging our knowledge and making it available to all interested stakeholders.
BizMOOC - What is it about?
The project tackles the European challenge of enabling businesses, labour force and universities to increase their activities and exploitation (economies of scale) of the MOOC potential. This will be achieved by creating common standards on MOOCs by integrating the experiences from Higher Education and the business world. The most important result will be the open access MOOC Book, which provides recommendations, guidelines, methods and strategies. Moreover, we'll produce 3 pilot MOOCs focussing on topics such as entrepreneurship and innovation, of which one will run at mooc.house. We'll inform you in good time before the start.
The MOOC Book - Core of the Project
The MOOC Book is the free online resource to Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) for businesses, workforce and universities. It contains guidelines, good practice and recommendations how to apply MOOCs, opportunities for the use of MOOCs and hot topics such as quality, business models or certification.
What is the right type of MOOC for me? Where can I find MOOCs for certain topics? Do universities recognize learning done through MOOCs? Are MOOCs only an extra expense or also a possible new income source for universities? What are possible reasons for companies to provide MOOCs themselves? What are the technical requirements? This is only a selection of questions which are raised and publicly discussed in the MOOC Book.
Did we spark your interest? Here you find the full text. We are looking forward to your comments!
