How Do Search Engines Work? A Massive Open Online Course with 4000 Participants

Krestel, Ralf; Risch, Julian in Proceedings of the Conference Lernen, Wissen, Daten, Analysen Seite 259-271 . 2017 .

Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) have introduced a new form of education. With thousands of participants per course, lectur- ers are confronted with new challenges in the teaching process. In this pa- per, we describe how we conducted an introductory information retrieval course for participants from all ages and educational backgrounds. We analyze different course phases and compare our experiences with regular on-site information retrieval courses at university.
