MOOC FOR ICT IN TEACHER TRAINING – REFLECTIONS ABOUT PEOPLE, PROCESS AND TOOLS

T. Hjeltnes, S.A. Horgen

Sør-Trøndelag University College (NORWAY)
Sør-Trøndelag University College, Faculty of Informatics and e-learning have organised distance education courses for more than twenty years. In total more than 70 courses have been offered and up to 6000 participants have taken the courses each semester. Up to 800 participants have been enrolled on a single course at one time.

In the autumn 2014 we have tried out a new model offering a course in ICT for teacher training. The new course has been developed, organised, delivered and assessed quite differently than the former courses, using a Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) model. The course is given in Norwegian and after twelve weeks the course has more than 900 enrolments.

In the Paper we have compared the two models of delivering the courses, both regarding organisational questions as well as the use of human resources, learning resources and technology. The results so far indicates that the new model have been successful regarding the professional results. The results also show that there is a much less commitment to finalise the whole course compared with earlier courses. We will also discuss the business model related to the two models and how that effect both the sustainability of the new course and how the Open model affects the commitment of the students.
