I have now been an enrolled student in two classes being referred to as MOOCs Massively Open Online Classes. I attended a discussion today that was offered by George Siemens in his blog post “What’s wrong with MOOCs?“. I commented there on some challenges to MOOCs in traditional disciplines, but I am also formulating some ideas regarding the possible different types and formats of MOOCs as I adapt my own thinking in a way that will help me design a History MOOC.The advantages of MOOCs are many. They open up both content and instruction, and allow people from all over to participate in a class. But even after only a handful of offerings have been attempted, it is clear that there is a spectrum of course design for MOOCs.
