GREEK OPENEDX MOOC AND OPEN COURSES: COMPARISON AND UTILIZATION IN SECONDARY EDUCATION TEACHERS’ TRAINING

S. Kappas, D. Tsolis

University of Patras (GREECE)
Research in the organized Greek MOOCs (Mathesis and Coursity – the only ones of that type in Greece) demonstrates that experience gained from these courses can be utilized for the creation of Greek University MOOCs. A main feature shared by both of them is that they use OpenEdX content management platform. On the other hand, it has become more feasible nowadays to convert some of Open Courses into University MOOCs on account of the updated Open eClass 3.6 version they use.

In our study we fully compare OpenEDX characteristics (as it is used in Greek MOOCs) with Open eClass new version. Moreover, we compare OpenDelos multiform material platform with videos uploaded on Greek MOOCs. Our aim is to find out whether we can convert, from a technological point of view, some of OpenCourses into MOOCs.

Some of the issues we are going to deal with are the creation of e-portfolio subsystems and mind maps and finding out whether or not they can aid within the context of an organized MOOC. Furthermore, we will cope with such issues as marking-assessment and Certification of participants in these courses. We will suggest solutions to one of the main problems posed by MOOC critics, that is the one of participants’ identification, recommending the tool of plagiarism check, embedded in Open eClass new version.

All these are presented through the prism of a search into the utilization of Open Courses as an organized form of Secondary Education teachers training.
