Effectiveness of integrating MOOCs in traditional classrooms for undergraduate students

Posted on October 31st, 2015

MOOCs are mostly used as standalone, online courses that do not offer credit. However, some institutions, including UBC, are now introducing MOOCs into face-to-face classroom settings. Maria Joseph Israel from the University of San Francisco looks at five models of integrating MOOCs into the classroom, where they can be used as open educational resources or courseware for blended courses. Israel discusses how these integrations impact learning outcomes and student satisfaction and makes recommendations for MOOC providers and institutions adopting MOOCs for in-class courses.
