MOOCs @ Edinburgh 2013 – Report

May 17, 2013
Commentary by Stephen Downes

Ignatia reports: "Last week the University of Edinburgh released their first report on their experiences gained after having organized 6 MOOC courses via Coursera. In this 34 page report they provide insights on organizing a Coursera MOOC, the success rates, their lessons learned, and how they went about in setting up the courses." The report is practical, covering governance process, project structure, the designing and building of the MOOCs, participant demographics, activity data, and measurements of success. Interestingly, the report authors observe, "if the number of MOOCs available rises significantly, as new platform providers appear and bring with them even more MOOCs to add to those already in planning, then we would expect our overall enrolments to fall unless we are very active to compensate."
