14:50 Massive Open Online Courses (MOOC) experimentation leading to improved student experiences in blended learning
MOOCs are the latest in a long line of fully online and blended initiatives introduced predominantly into higher education in recent years. MOOCs provide opportunities for institutions to experiment with new learning designs and new technology solutions and the learning analytics from the big numbers of students taking MOOCs offers evidence for rich experiences that can be transferred to mainstream teaching and learning.
