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. Such complex and far reaching consequences raise significant questions for Australian universities across a spectrum of issues. These include:
- Addressing the challenges of MOOCs such as scalability, quality assurance and the integrity of learning with reference to accreditation, grading and cheating
- The shift in learning and the level of significance is given to online learning and collaboration in comparison to traditional face to face learning
- The practical realities of industry and employer requisites in skill sets and whether MOOCs is a tool that can be applied to deliver these competencies
