Session Format: Workshop


Although it has been long since Massive Open Online Courses (MOOC) are being used in the educational environment in general and higher education in particular, it’s role and importance has increased manifold in the unprecedented situation of the pandemic due to COVID-19. The educational institutions, administration, and teachers all are striving hard to find out the ways to get connected to the learners and to keep the teaching-learning active in the phase of lockdown, and what has been a great support to them is the incorporation of MOOCs with their traditional classroom pattern to meet the various learning preferences. The unseen situation like pandemic has also fostered the need of developing learning strategies like blended learning which can cater to the needs of all sorts of students in the face to face and in the online environment, giving rise to the need for creating and integrating MOOCS through blended pedagogy. To, cater to the above objectives, it is essential that teachers are also skilled to create their own MOOCS and can integrate the same in teaching through various online platforms for MOOCS eg., Coursera, edX, Moodle, Gnomio etc. . Hence, It is required that teachers are aware of tools and technology involved in creating e- contents for MOOCS and implementing it through blended learning pedagogy in educating the students. The present proposal on, “Creating and Integrating MOOCS in Blended Learning” will focus on training the participants to use technological skills involved in creating e-contents for MOOCS and developing their own MOOC courses using various online platforms.

It would be my privilege to have you there, looking forward to meeting you. :slightly_smiling_face:

Dear Friends,
The countdown has begun, I invite you to take a tour of my workshop on, "Creating and Integrating MOOCs in Blended Learning"
Visit the BLUERINT here https://viewer.edrawsoft.com/public/s/d2d76977783202

This session looks exciting. I am super amazed with the things I have seen people do with OBS to improve their video capability beyond camera or screen share; it gives you what previously required expensive software. And I love Loom for screen recording.

FYI, you may check link number 5 I think there is a typo- I believe you mean http://edu.glogster.com It’s been a while since I have seen Glogster, glad it is still around.

A long time ago I ran a lot of workshops demonstrating how to use free web based tools like Glogster for creating small digital stories (quite a few ones are gone) Fifty+ Web Ways to Tell a Story (https://50ways.cogdogblog.com/)

I hope I can stay up late for this workshop!
