Fair Use, MOOCs, and the Digital Millennium Copyright Act: FAQs - 0 views

  •  
    "Fair Use, MOOCs, and the Digital Millennium Copyright Act: Frequently Asked Questions In October 2015 the Librarian of Congress issued new rules permitting certain teachers of Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) to break encryption on DVDs, Blu-Ray discs and streaming videos to create short clips for use in their teaching. It's a major step forward for MOOC teachers and their students. This document, prepared by Professors Peter Decherney and Brandon Butler, answers some of the most common questions you might have about the new rule."

    (Per il contesto, vedi http://infojustice.org/archives/35654 e http://ipclinic.org/2016/01/22/fair-use-moocs-and-the-digital-millennium-copyright-act-frequently-asked-questions/) Parti problematiche: Coursera and Udacity are for profit companies. Can they take advantage of the exemption? Coursera and Udacity are the platforms. Colleges, universities, museums, and other nonprofit organizations offer courses through these platforms. The organization that creates the course must be an accredited nonprofit educational institution, but the provider of the software platform may be for-profit . So a university course offered through Coursera may take advantage of the exemption. How can the material be restricted to students enrolled in the course? We believe that use of passwords provided only to enrolled students will sufficiently limit access to the course content to students or learners. How can redistribution be prevented? Offering streaming rather than downloadable versions of the course content should reasonably limit unauthorized redistribution of the work. Unfortunately, this unfairly disadvantages learners with slower internet access" Cioè l'autorizzazione a far saltare i blocchi anticopia vale soltant per i MOOC che non sono MOOC perché non sono Open ma protetti da password. E l'argomento secondo il quale il fair use vale per i video di corsi Coursera e Udacity, a patto che gli enti che elargiscono il corso non siano a scopo di lucro, anche se le piattaforme lo sono, è dubbio. in effetti Coursera e Udacity traggono profitto dai materiali proposti da questi enti. Quanto all'offerta dei video in solo streaming per impedirne lo scaricamento: almeno nei corsi Coursera dove il link di scaricamento è stato t

Cooley | Websites as Places of Public Accommodation: DOJ Settlement May Extend Accessib... - 0 views

  •  
    "Recent headlines around a high-profile settlement between the US Department of Justice and edX, Inc., one of the largest and earliest distributors of MOOCs, have once again highlighted the importance of understanding the rules for making online courses and services accessible to those with various types and levels of disabilities. While much of the media coverage of the edX settlement has focused on the fact that the government sued so high-profile-and respected-an online provider, to date there has been little recognition that the enforcement action may signal an effort to extend the ADA's accessibility requirements not only to a broader range of non-institutional entities providing web-based instruction, but also to those that provide other education-related services."

MOOCs are closed platforms… and probably doomed - 0 views

  •  
    "Colleges and universities, left and right, are launching Massive open online courses (MOOC). Colleges failing to follow are "behind the times". Do not be fooled by how savvy MOOC advocates sound. They do not understand what they are doing. Let us start with how they do not even understand what a MOOC is, or should be. MOOCs are supposed to be open platforms. It is right there in the name. Downes' original MOOCs were indeed open. Yet the actual MOOCs that colleges publish are closed platforms, as per Wikipedia's definition: ..."

What's right and what's wrong about Coursera-style MOOCs - Tony Bates 2012_08_05 - 0 views

  •  
    "August 5, 2012 by Tony Bates TED Talks: Daphne Koller: What we're learning from online education Daphne Koller, one of the two founders of Coursera, describes some of the key features of the Coursera MOOCs, and the lessons she has learned to date about teaching and learning from these courses. The video is well worth watching, just for this. However I'm probably going to suffer the same kind of fate of the Russian female punk band, Pussy Riot, by spitting on the altar of MOOCs, but this TED talk captures for me all that is both right and wrong about the MOOCs being promoted by the elite US universities. Let me start by saying that I actually applaud Daphne Koller and her colleagues for developing massive open online MOOCs. Any attempt to make the knowledge of some of the world's leading experts available to anyone free of charge is an excellent endeavour. If only it stopped there. What I object to is the hubris and misleading claims that are evident in this TED video. As someone once said about one of Sigmund Freud's lectures, what is new is not true, and what is true is not new."

Can You Really Teach a MOOC in a Refugee Camp? - The Chronicle of Higher Education 2014... - 0 views

  •  
    "Can You Really Teach a MOOC in a Refugee Camp? - Wired Campus - Blogs - The Chronicle of Higher Education August 1, 2014 by Steve Kolowich Two men living in Dadaab, a refugee camp in Kenya, would watch lecture videos and take online quizzes at a nearby United Nations compound. (InZone) One narrative that has driven widespread interest in free online courses known as MOOCs is that they can help educate the world. But critics like to emphasize that the courses mostly draw students who already hold traditional degrees. So when Coursera, the largest provider of MOOCs, published a blog post about how a professor had used one of its online courses to teach refugees near the Kenya-Somalia border, it sounded to some like a satire of Silicon Valley's naïve techno-optimism: Hundreds of thousands of devastated Africans stranded in a war zone? MOOCs to the rescue! Details of the experiment paint a more nuanced picture, one that highlights the challenges MOOC providers face in trying to change the lives of downtrodden people. Barbara Moser-Mercer, a cognitive psychologist at the University of Geneva, ran the refugee experiment and wrote Coursera's optimistic blog post about it. But in an interview with The Chronicle, as well as a more formal article she wrote about the experiment for a European conference on MOOCs, the professor expanded on the logistical issues that come with trying to make sophisticated online courses work in deprived settings."

    "MOOC.Well, what's that? The word MOOC is an acronym. I should at least say once what it stands for: Massive Online Open Course. That was the easy part, just to give you those words. Now to give a definition, that's going to be very challenging.For every one of those words, I think it's fair to say that there is a generally accepted understanding of what the word means, but then there is a substantial number of people who challenge that understanding, who try to push it further....

01- This course is an experiment [Massive Teaching] with subtitles | Amara - 1 views

  •  
    ... This course only spans three weeks.The structure will be quite simple.In the first week, I'll take a mostly positive tone about MOOCs, describe the promise that many people see in them, including me. In the second week, I'll take a closer look at the technology and survey the copyright aspects. In the third week, I'll discuss the business aspects and maybe a bit of science fiction. In fact I'll prepare some material for the third week, but I'll be ready to add muchmore to it than that, mostly in response to questions that will intermittently pop up in the forums.It's quite a tight schedule, so it might be that atthe last minute, I settle for more text then I originally intended. In any case, this is just the first run of the course.As soon as possible, I hope to rerun it, this time with a bit more material, that I can reintegrate, to offer a slightly longer course.

    "In a previous post, I commented on the Massive Teaching course at Coursera and that something odd was happening. Either Coursera deleted the prof from the course or the prof was running some type of experiment. It now appears to be primarily the latter. (...) 3. Criticism ranging from a poorly designed course to poor ethics has been directed to Paul-Olivier Dehaye. Most of it is unfair. There have been some calls for U of Zurich to discipline the prof. Like others, I've criticized his deception research and his silence since the course was shut down. Several days before the media coverage, Dehaye provided the following comments on his experiment: "MOOCs can be used to enhance privacy, or really destroy it," Dehaye wrote. "I want to fight scientifically for the idea, yet teach, and I have signed contracts, which no one asks me about…. I am in a bind. Who do I tell about my project? My students? But this idea of the #FacebookExperiment is in itself dangerous, very dangerous. People react to it and express more emotions, which can be further mined." The goal of his experiment, Dehaye wrote, was to "confuse everyone, including the university, [C]oursera, the Twitter world, as many journalists as I can, and the course participants. The goal being to attract publicity…. I want to show how [C]oursera tracks you." There it is. His intent was to draw attention to Coursera policies and practices around data. Congrats, Paul-Olivier. Mission accomplished. He is doing exactly what academics should do: perturb people to states of awareness. Hundreds, likely thousands, of faculty have taught MOOCs, often having to toe the line of terms and conditions set by an organization that doesn't share the ideals, community, and egalitarianism that define universities (you can include me in that list). The MOOC Mystery was about an academic doing what we expect and need academics to do. Unfortunately it was poorly executed and not properly communicated so th

Proposal Lesson plan for- Teaching goes massive: new skills required - 2 views

  •  
    "Overview - This course is offered by University of Zurich with Prof Paul-Olivier Dehaye and his students. This lesson plan is created by Dilrukshi Gamage (www.sdgamage.weebly.com) a MOOC student from this class due to few reasons. 1. Course started with giving some ideas, but now it appears no more ideas facilitated 2. Forums are closed and we have no clue of what to do 3. Students who take this course or any of coursera for the first time will be wondering and might lose the context of learning. 4. This lesson plan will guide us to collaboratively find solution to be in synchronized and learn from the time we invest in this. Introduction - The course named Teaching goes massive : new skills needed. It is our responsibility to find out what are the skills we need when we are teaching to a massive class.. or any class. Prof.Paul mentioned some experiments which we can do and previous forums already started and gone very well until suddenly closed everything. So let us drive this MOOC , learn to learn ourselves how to be organized and learn from each other. Anyone can suggest things but not like as forums it has to be much more effective. This document will contain how to participate and what can you do in contributing to expand your learning. Don't worry this will not stop suddenly as we the students are in charge. First step lets set some objectives so we can see did we achieve when we finish this course. Objectives - After you complete this course 1. You will learn how to learn yourselves to work without a real teacher or a lecturer. 2. You will learn to make communications and build a network where you can share and learn throughout your interest. 3. You will learn to work on inclusive projects in the same course ( by inclusive what I mean was anyone can work in one project or more) 4. You will gain knowledge on what skills you need and how to handle it when teaching is massive Where to contact - Please use the links provided in collaborating

    "We've got some folks engaged... so we're on. I've got two blog posts running now that give a description of both what the course is 'for' and what it might look like. Wander over and give them a gander. http://davecormier.com/edblog/2013/12/29/unravelling-a-model-for-an-open-course/ http://davecormier.com/edblog/2013/12/27/rhizomatic-learning-an-open-course-rhizo14/ Rhizomatic Learning posits, among other things, that the community is the curriculum. That being able to participate with and among those people who are resident in a particular field is a primary goal of learning. In each of my classes the curriculum is, of course, filled with the ideas and connections that pre-exist in the field but the paths that are taken by the students are as individual as they are, and the path taken by the class is made up of the collected paths chosen by all the students, shaped by my influence as an instructor and the impact of those external nodes they manage to contact.

'A MOOC? What's a MOOC?' Now You Can Look It Up - The Chronicle of Higher Education - S... - 1 views

  •  
    ""A mook? What's a mook?" asks "Johnny Boy" Civello, the fast-talking gambling debtor in Martin Scorsese's 1973 film Mean Streets. For years, "mook" existed in English as an obscure slang term referring to "a foolish, insignificant, or contemptible person" (as Merriam-Webster's Online defines it). According to one Scorsese biographer, Vincent LoBrutto, the term first appeared in 1930 in the work of S.J. Perelman, the well-known writer and humorist. Since then it has occasionally resurfaced-in Mean Streets, for example; and again, around 2000, to classify an emerging class of poor, angry white kids who listen to rap metal. But that particular monosyllable was rarely at the tip of anyone's tongue. Until recently, that is, when college professors began broadcasting their courses to a worldwide audience. They called their courses "MOOCs," which stands for massive open online courses and is pronounced "mooks." Suddenly, that unfortunate syllable could be heard everywhere: in the news and the blogs, at tech conferences and faculty meetings, in legislative hearings and policy proposals. Now, it has been formally enshrined into the English language. Oxford University Press this week inducted "MOOC" into its Oxford Dictionaries Online. The definition: "A course of study made available over the Internet without charge to a very large number of people.""
