Details Summary

Addressing the challenges, overcoming the hype and realising the potential of a rapidly evolving learning platform.

Description

Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) is a growing phenomenon in the higher education world.

MOOCs 2013 is the only conference currently in the Australian market that is directly addressing this new model of education.

The creation of MOOCs opens up many questions both in the short term future with regard to the viability of the current MOOCs model, as well as in the long term with reference to the democratisation of education and what it means for the future of universities.

In this two-day conference, we will examine issues including:
- Challenges of MOOCs: Scalability, quality assurance and the integrity of learning with reference to accreditation, grading and cheating
- Delivery of MOOCs: MOOCs medium, content, format and integration with university experience
- The shift in learning: From face-to-face to online
- Industry reality: Can MOOCs be a tool to gain industry skills that employers look for?
