7 What are MOOCs good for? Lower costs of learning Better quality learning More learning opportunities 7

8 True or false: MOOCs save a lot of money Doug Becker, Laureate: at least 1/3 reduction of higher education cost How? 1 teacher teaching student = 250 years Replacing face-to-face teaching by online courses Automatised undergraduate teaching? Or: Flipping the classroom Investment costs: EUR Work intensive: 600h staff time (Duke University) Maintainance update? Re-use after some years? Or: make it available to 8 many

9 True or false: MOOCs earn a lot of money Doug Becker: 1% of that benefit would still be a very nice business Adverstisement, big data Revenue for universities? Crowd-funding: small participation fees Fees for credits/ certification But: additional effort for the institution Low numbers of students seek credit Georgia Tech Computer Science Master s course: 6000 USD in place of USD But: if you do not charge fees for conventional HE? 9

10 True or false: MOOCs enable access Coursera, Udacity: Democratisation of knowledge MOOCs give access to people who could not attend university (disadvantaged, poor, unemployed etc.) Jeb Bush: great for people who cannot afford college 10

11 True or false: MOOCs enable access High drop-out (70-90%) Majority of learners have a degree University Edinburg: 70% UW-Madison: 74% MOOCs users are Graduated, +/- 30 years old, employed Some are currently studying, or likely to enter university Low to no participation of those, who cannot enter university 11

12 True or false: Moocs are good for internationalisation. 12

13 True or false: Moocs are good for internationalisation.

Visibility and reputation Attracting and selecting talent? Internationalisation of programmes? Erasmus + Erasmus Mundus Targeted offer: Cooperation with institutions and regions 13

14 True or false: MOOCs improve learning Every participant has to learn actively Learning data - learning analytics Better preperation of courses (teams, no adhoc) Are these not the usual benefits of online-learning provision? open university response: Student instructor relation student support services QA MOOCs not autonomatically innovative learning 14

15 True or false: Moocs revolutinize higher education make universities superfluous Thrun (Udacity), Moody s, Ernst & Young e.a.: Many/some universities will disappear or change Loose award monopol for certification of learning Certificates, badges Universities develop & implement MOOCs QA Degree award Universities change 15

16 Conclusions: MOOCs in Europe No panacea for challenges of mass higher ed Financial and economic interests US Europe: different frameworks Business model for European MOOCs Europe: public responsibilty / no/low fees European Higher Education Area Inter-institutional collaboration No need for having the same topic produced several times Open educational resources Supplement mobility Internationalisation European learning offer Joint provision with partners around the globe? 16

17 Conclusions: MOOCs in Europe Additional learning rather than replacing HE Lifelong learners Continued professional education Third mission: service to society e.g. outreach to schools, communities etc. MOOCs integrated in regular teaching? (blended learning, flexibilisation of learning) Growing importance for e-learning General discussion on learning and teaching MOOCs for research different ways of producing knowledgechange, disruption yes, but not from the MOOCs (alone) Research on MOOcs not for all institutions - institutional mission/ strategy & responsiblity 17
