Roles, Strategies and Impact of MOOCs on Flipping Business Education
International Association for Development of the Information Society (IADIS) International Conference on Educational Technologies,
In a globalized digital age, the creation of curriculum innovation, along with the way we deliver course content has a great impact on preparing and equipping students with the knowledge and skills needed to succeed in the workplace. The affordance of connectivity of Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) has provided new opportunities for higher education institutions to develop a more adaptive and strategic approach to online learning. The Industry 4.0 movement has reflected the needs of business educators to embrace the new trends and challenges in today's workplaces. To better utilize MOOCs in business education, it is important to take note of this shift and evolution and explore how MOOCs can be used to support university teaching and learning. As the use of MOOCs has been widely discussed and spread throughout educational disciplines, business educators need to evaluate the practicality of this learning environment and make its applications effective, while considering its pedagogical benefits and constraints.
