On the Expanding Global Landscape of MOOC Platforms


In Brussels Androulla Vassiliou (European Commissioner for Education, Culture, Multilingualism and Youth) announced that the “first pan-European” MOOC platform will be launched on 25 April 2013. As Commissioner Vassiliou put it: This is an exciting development and I hope it will open up education to tens of thousands of students and trigger our schools and universities to adopt more innovative and flexible teaching methods. The MOOCs movement has already proved popular, especially in theUS, but this pan-European launch takes the scheme to a new level. It reflects European values such as equity, quality and diversity and the partners involved are a guarantee for high-quality learning. We see this as a key part of the Opening up Education strategy which the Commission will launch this summer.

 This multi-institutional European MOOC platform (available via www.OpenupEd.eu) is to be formally launched at the Open Universiteit in theNetherlandson Thursday 25 April (11:00-12:00 CET).

A Pilot Translation Collaboration with Digital October in Russia

Coursera’s mission is “learning without limits by connecting the world to a great education.” One way we are accomplishing this goal is by making select course lectures subtitles available in different languages.

Since January 2013, Coursera has received more than 1.1 million unique visitors from Russia, and today, we’re excited to announce a collaboration pilot with Digital October, a center for new technology and entrepreneurship located in the heart of Moscow. We’ll be working with Digital October to bring more courses to Russian-speaking students, starting with University of Pennsylvania’s popular course on Gamification, taught by Kevin Werbach.

The Digital October team has already begun translating subtitles for this course. They will also translate a talk that Kevin Werbach is giving today called the “Shall We Play,” available on KnowledgeStream, an online distance-learning initiative run by Digital October.

You can watch Professor Werbach’s talk live at 9AM PT this morning.

In addition to translating courses, Digital October will also host in-person meet-ups for Russia-based Courserians, beginning with a in-person meet-up for Gamification students at the Digital October headquarters soon. “We hope that this is only the beginning,” says Yulia Lesnikova, Director of Educational Programs at Digital October.

Digital October describes themselves as a place “where great content meets great people.” Like Coursera, they believe that knowledge should be available to everyone, regardless of location, income, language, age or gender. We are excited to be working together on this pilot.

 EDX automates the process of classification essay.

   EdX — an education nonprofit founded by Harvard University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology — has just introduced a free online tool that automates the essay grading process. EdX president Anant Agarwal, an MIT professor of electrical engineering and computer science, told The New York Times he believes his software will give professors more free time and allow students to receive helpful instant feedback. The software first analyzes 100 of a professor’s already graded essays, then uses machine-learning techniques to grade future papers on its own.

Though this technology is not currently in use, the idea does not sit well with Yale students and faculty.

Coursera beginning to make money.

 The Silicon Valley-based company brought in $220,000 in the first quarter after it started charging for verified completion certificates, its co-founders said. The company also receives revenue from an Amazon.com affiliates program if users buy books suggested by professors.

 “It’s the beginning of revenue,” said a Coursera co-founder, Daphne Koller.

 The company has 3.2 million registered users, an increase of nearly 700,000 from mid-February. The company was founded in fall 2011 by Koller and her colleague atStanfordUniversity, Andrew Ng.

 The vast majority of users are just dropping in to take free courses, but the company introduced a “Signature Track” to try to put more weight behind the end-of-course awards issued by universities that offer courses through its platform. Users who pay for this have to submit a photo ID of themselves to the company and are also tracked based on their “unique typing pattern” to ensure that people who take tests or turn in assignments are who they say they are. Prices are set around $50 so far.

 The company remains interested in keeping courses free, Koller said.
