Online Educa and workshop on Learning Analytics

Just a few weeks left until our first Lund University Massive open Online Course Introduction to European Business Law open the doors for thousands of learners. We are so excited to meet all the people that have enrolled! The MOOC team at the Faculty of Law are busy building the course right now and I have had a sneak peek – it looks great. There is also a Facebook page (over 1200 likes now!) for everyone interested in getting updates on the course and engage in discussions outside of the MOOC platform.

Last week, I was in Berlin together with my colleagues Maria Hedberg and Deana Nannskog from Lund University. Maria works with me at the Centre for Educational Development and Deana is a project manager at Lund University Commissioned Education. We went there to take part in the yearly conference on online education – Online Educa Berlin. As part of a panel from the Nordic countries I gave a presentation on the benefits of producing MOOCs for universities in countries where higher education is free and where MOOCs are not a threat to national higher education in the same way as in other countries. My point was that the whole process of creating a massive open course can generate a value into the organization because of certain key success factors often present in MOOC-projects. We also had the opportunity to listen to some well-known keynotes and interesting presentations, such as Stephen Downes and Ola Rosling. Oh, and we got to try Oculus Rift:)!

A workshop on learning analytics at a Sweden AND California-friendly time:). For Emma it was early morning, for us late afternoon.

 

Yesterday me and some members from our MOOC teams participated in a workshop on learning analytics arranged by our wonderful partnership manager Emma at Coursera. She gave us an overview of all the data we have access to from ur courses and how we can interpret it. It was very interesting and I think we all learned a lot.

 

Soon I might be able to tell you more about the Lund University MOOCs that will be developed during 2015. Until then: only two weeks of hard work left before Christmas and then another two weeks to start date! Don’t forget to enroll!
