11 The French Revolution Professor Peter McPhee Lecture Week 6 6 – The ‘maximalist’ approach: the turning-point of the modern world

12 National background: 31% were from the US, 6% from India, 5% from both the UK and China, and 4% from each of Australia, Brazil and Canada. 30% were from ‘emerging economies’. Age: 31% were aged and 21% That is, 52% were 20-39, compared with 18% who were over 60 years. 54% were male. Education: 75% Bachelors degree or higher (6% PhD); only 10% high school. An estimated 1,150 separate discussion forums. The students made a total of 10,282 posts across the course. 6,500 ‘browsed’ the forums.

13 “According to Fiona M. Hollands of Columbia University’s Teachers College, MOOCs ‘are not democratizing education. They are making courses widely available, but the wrong crowd is showing up.’ onomy/udacity-att-nanodegree-offers-an-entry-level- apprhttp://www.nytimes.com/2014/06/18/business/ec onomy/udacity-att-nanodegree-offers-an-entry-level- appr... “The ‘wrong crowd’ seem to be those who are overqualified, have too much time on their hands (ie probably those a bit underemployed) and tend to dominate in the forums.”

14 “I guess I fit in as I have a PhD and MA in Modern History, by choice work as little as possible (I work as a private tutor in Thailand) so have a lot of free time, and love to study, so sign up for pretty well every MOOC around and then see which seem to be stimulating/fun/suitably challenging. So, I don't really fit in with the original purpose of MOOCs, which seemed to be for educating the youth of the world (I'm 45). “Do you fit in to the ‘wrong crowd’? Or are you like me, who thinks you can never learn enough...?”

15 “The way in which students are accessing material points to the need for the modularization of online classes whenever possible. The very notion of a ‘class’ may be outdated. This in many ways mirrors the preferences of students on campus. The unbundling of classes also reflects a larger trend in society—a number of other media offerings have become available in modules, whether it is a song from an album, an article in a newspaper, or a chapter from a textbook. Modularity also enables ‘just-in-time’ delivery of instruction, further enabling 'project-based learning on campus and for students worldwide.” report/TaskForceFinal_July28.pdfhttp://web.mit.edu/future- report/TaskForceFinal_July28.pdf

16 “UW-Madison say they will go in the direction [of] shorter courses, 'greatest hits' courses (and probably easier assessment - probably like those courses with 5 multiple choice questions and 100 attempts allowed)” making-next-round-of-moocs-shorter-more- wisconsin/ahttp://lacrossetribune.com/news/local/uw-madison- making-next-round-of-moocs-shorter-more- wisconsin/a...”
