Online Courses - the Human Element - 4 views

  • Don't get me wrong: I have always been a fan of online education -- but with a few important caveats.
  • First off, subjects tend to be conveyed best in what might be considered their native environments. Computers might not be the best place to simulate a live philosophy seminar, but they are terrific places to teach people how to use and program computers.
  • Second, and just as important, computers should not require the humans using them to become more robotic. I recently read an account from an online lecturer about how -- unlike in a real classroom -- he had to deliver his online video lectures according to a rigid script, where every action was choreographed. To communicate effectively online, he needed to stop thinking and living in the moment. That's not teaching; it's animatronics.

  • Online learning needs to cater to human users. A real instructor should not simply dump data on a person, as in a scripted video, but engage with students, consider their responses and offer individualized challenges.
  • The good, living teacher probes the way students think and offers counterexamples that open pathways. With the benefit of a perfect memory of student's past responses, a computer lesson should also be able to identify some of these patterns and offer up novel challenges at the right time. "How might Marx have responded to that suggestion, Joe?"
  • Finally, education does not happen in isolation. Whether it's philosophy students arguing in a dorm about what Hegel meant, or fledgling Java programmers inspecting one another's code, people learn best as part of a cohort. The course material is almost secondary to the engagement. We go to college for the people. Likewise, the best of MOOCs should be able to bring together ideal, heterogeneous groupings of students based on their profiles and past performance, and also create ample opportunities for them to engage with one another in the spirit of learning.
    Words of warning to those who consider MOOCs as the end-all / be-all of modern education.

    Hi Jason - This was fascinating. Seems that you have to submit a request and then wait to be "accepted." I "submitted" so I guess I'll wait to see what happens. Thanks for sharing! Jen/Buffalo, MN
    Jason and Jen, I have submitted a request as well. The student/teacher ratio intro was effective. Alan @ Cambridge, UK
