MOOC Experience as Vehicle for Learner Development
C. J. Edlin
Kanda University of International Studies
Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) are becoming ever more common. Though they are easily accessible, experiences are highly variable. Furthermore, many students have difficulty managing both cognitive and metacognitive aspects of their learning, especially on courses conducted in their L2. The presenter will describe an elective course at an international university in Japan in which students learn about and then choose English-based MOOCs for themselves, and in which the focus is learner development and support. He will reflect on the university’s place in the age of MOOCs, including how we can both add value and help develop lifelong learners.
