The mixably Open Online Course (mOOC). Part I: Module Structure.Posted: January 4, 2013
This is an off the cuff presentation of the module structure in the Psych course we are developing, which shows some of the possibilities of combining multiple OER into a course designed for institutional reuse. Part II will talk more about the mixability piece.
I started this project to in part show how easy this is for institutions to do. I found that is is not hard work, but it takes a *lot* of time to structure a semester’s worth of modules at this level. Accordingly, my impression of the value has shifted — I find it hard to imagine that a faculty member could find the time to build out something at this level on their own — and that’s a huge argument for open production and collaboration.
