Questions for Learner-Centered MOOC Design
How do you plan your first Massive Open Online Course? How do you design an online course in a learner-centered way? In this short workshop, we collect and discuss your open questions about learner-centered MOOC design. Our goal is to develop a learner-centered framework for aiding first-time MOOC designers or instructors taking on a new topic.
lernen.cloud – New Possibilities for Teacher Education
lernen.cloud, HPI's new MOOC platform, is open to all non-profit institutions to offer their own learning content in the form of an online course to help young people and teachers prepare for an increasingly digital world, regardless of time or place. We want to collectively generate initial course ideas in the workshop and play them through in exemplary fashion.
Introduction to Successful Remote Teamwork
This workshop takes experiences from the correspondent MOOC on openHPI.de. It will make you and your team fit for virtual collaboration in geographically distributed contexts. You will learn about the benefits and risks of driving a virtual team culture and how guided remote work drives to success. Furthermore, you will learn how to use intercultural competences as a key factor of interaction and communication.
How to Storify your Online Courses
As a teacher, it can be challenging to create engaging MOOCs. Often, learning materials are of high quality but rarely linked to each other and not adapted to the students’ needs. Narratives can help structuring learning materials and connecting them over the entire course, making them more interesting and easier to understand for the learners. In this workshop, we illustrate how you can apply gameful learning to your courses. You will also get the chance to try out these techniques for your own learning scenarios, enabling you to improve your next MOOC with gameful learning.
