Evaluation (miniMOOC12)

About 50% were satisfied with the training and the achievement of their learning goals. More than 70% found the learning materials useful. They appreciated the work of the moderator (82%) and the inputs of the facilitator (94%) The moderator didnt get to know the learners, didnt identify all of them, couldnt monitor them was not satisfied.

Second experiment (miniMOOC13)


Hybrid course based on connectivism (web-literacy Lab) Objective: to investigate the concept of content strategy Similar tools as last time: a WP blog (content), a Google+ community (easier to handle than circles) New tools: hangouts on air (youtube videos) AND a closed facebook group for online socialisation before the open phase Facilitator prepares content, attends hangouts E-moderator (convener) supports learners (prepares virtual room, moderates the hangouts, summarizes, writes protocols) 4 pre-defined e-tivities per week 4,5 weeks, Jan./Feb. 2013, about 50 participants

Evaluation (miniMOOC13)

The closed facebook group (28 persons) was fun and worked well but the spirit of the fb group didnt survive in the open Google+ environment. 87% of the participants were satisfied with the training. 82% appreciated the work of the moderator, 93% the inputs of the expert. 71% of the learners answered that the online socialization in facebook supported them in the open learning process in Google+ But the moderator didnt know how many learners there were between 61148 watched the videos of the hangouts.

Intermediary result
The miniMOOCs worked in a way. The inclusion of e-tivities was helpful. The learners appreciated the moderators nearly as much as the facilitators. The online socialisation in the facebook group was successful (but didnt help that much for the open phase).

So what?
We returned to our closed groups and moderated four online courses since the miniMOOC13 in Jan./Feb. 12. We attended MOOCs and reflected our learning experiences and had a lot of discussions.

Perspective (cope14 MOOC)


In autumn 2013 we convinced our directors to support a MOOC. We looked for facilitators who will bring their expertise into our MOOC. We are developing a didactical concept including moderation.
