A New Framework for Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs)
Journal of Adult Education Volume 42, Number 2, ISSN 0090-4244
The challenges that massive open online courses (MOOCs) bring to the learning arena spur adult educators to improve delivery. A framework for a new type of MOOC is presented to address some of the challenges presented by earlier models. This new MOOC, called a mesoMOOC, can bridge several challenges that hinder current effective delivery of MOOCs and utilize proven strategies in online learning to better implement MOOCs. The framework for the mesoMOOC calls for MOOC designers to address the orientation process, embed a connectivist synchronous component to the classroom, provide online formative and summative assessment, and develop subsections within classes.
