Making Media for MOOCs: A 10 Year Retrospective [Birds of a Feather]

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

It's been a decade since the first MOOCs reached 250K students and everyone began to make a MOOC of their own. Setting the utopian hype and the institutional reality aside, it might be worth reviewing what has happened to MOOCs and how the Pandemic has forced a rapid adoption of other remote learning platforms in the past 2 years.  Our discussion will be facilitated with Poll Everywhere, so please login and be ready to use this polling platform in addition to Pronto.

Carlos Seligo helped make media for two MOOCs by Professor Friedlander, who has agreed to join us in this Birds of a Feather. Each MOOC took about 2 years to complete, involved dozens of interviews, video recorded lectures, story videos shot in labs and on mountain tops and in gyms, a couple iPhone app, 100s of speaker releases and 1000s of hours of editing--work that is often underestimated in the abstract discussions of student retention, job security of lecturers, and the data on likes, numbers of views and so on.  Friedlander and Seligo will show sample videos, discuss best practices for engagement and also share their boots-on-the-ground perspective, with time for Q&A.  

  • Administrators will gain badly needed perspective to plan for long-term projects moving courses online;
  • Media and Instructional design staff may prepare for the organizational challenges and the infrastructure requirements for making content; a
  • Faculty will know how much unpaid time they are offering to realize their dreams!
