Masterclass: Intercreativity and Interculturality in designing MOOCs and in applying business models
This masterclass consists of two parts related to the design of sMOOCs and to sustainable business models for MOOCs. The first part will actively guide you through the activities in creating a sMOOC. sMOOCs (seamless/social MOOCs) are based on constructivist and connectivist pedagogical theories which foster intercreativity and interculturality. The basic principles of these concepts are introduced and translated to design guidelines of MOOCs. Next the pedagogical model is discussed and illustrated with several examples. The implementation process of the sMOOC model in the ECO project are described by two local partners in Germany and Italy. In addition the sMOOC “step by step” (6 languages, several European partners) acted as a regulator of quality because it was designed calling on all the teams and their best practices. It also augmented interculturality and intercreativity across institutions and countries. The second part will introduce the participants to the different business models for MOOCS as developed by ECO partners. We will guide you through different business models at different (stakeholders) levels. We will start with business models at the MOOC level using principles of the freemium model. Next we will discuss the business scenarios at the institutional level in close related with business providers. Lastly different governmental business models are illustrated.
