How to Create an Outstanding MOOC is a linear course, comprising 5 levels.

The Getting Started level provides an overview of the MOOC from the teams involved in its development, and some tips on being successful in a Curatr MOOC if they are a new concept for you.

There are also 4 levels of learning material, as follows:

 

Levels 1 & 2: The Good, The Bad & The Ugly of MOOCs

We kick of this course by refreshing ourselves on what a MOOC is and how we can get the most out of them. We’ll then take a closer look at some of the component parts that we believe help to create a ‘The Good’ MOOC as well as consider where it’s all gone wrong!

By the end of these levels you’ll be starting to consider what your MOOC subject may be and how you can prevent it being ‘The Bad’ or ‘The Ugly’!

 

Levels 3 & 4: Techniques to Create an Outstanding MOOC

We continue to look at ‘good practice’ in MOOCs whilst hearing from a number of HT2 team members about their experiences of designing MOOCs in Curatr. You’ll also be able to access a number of Curatr video resources that will help you to create your own MOOC.

By the end of these levels you’ll be starting to formulate your own ideas as to how you can create that all important ‘social’ aspect around your content.
