Experience of open education
I have experience of several MOOCs – all FutureLearn. My motivation for exploring MOOCs is to
- build new knowledge
- stay up to date around key business issues such as decision making in a complex world
- experience Open Education Resources to assess their usefulness for my students and corporate clients.
I have completed 4/9 MOOCs I started and became increasingly frustrated with the lack of feedback and interaction. Recent MOOCs have introduced peer review which has added another more positive dynamic to the experience.
