Learner driven strategies and technologies for effective engagement with MOOCs

Strategies
Auditing
- learners watch lectures throughout course, but attempt very few assessments
Completing

- learners attempt majority of assessments offered in course
Disengaging
- learners attempt assessments at beginning of the course, but then sparsely watch lectures or disappear entirely
Sampling

- learners briefly explore course by watching a few videos
Learner Trajectories
* = completed
No cost/no risk = exploring
No cost/no risk = empowering
No cost/no risk = distraction by “other things”
No cost/no risk = no problem if you drop out

"M" doesn't = magic
Not completing doesn’t = failure
Expect chaos and confusion
Experiment and share
Ban the use of "lurking"
Have fun
Be realistic
Confidence and digital literacies key

(O)

Out - Did not interact with the course either through videos or assignments
Some Engagement labels
My MOOC Timeline
Massive ?
Open ?
Online ?
Course ?
Use familiar online spaces (particularly at the start)
Don't try and be everywhere and read everything
Simple SNA (e.g.tags explorer) can help with understanding community interactions
Try something new each week and share
