STATISTICS FOR THE MASSES: HOW TO MARKET A MOOC

S. Silver

The Citadel (UNITED STATES)
As a result of the increasing use of technology by educators, educational institutions at all levels are examining new ways to use this technology to improve the delivery of instruction to their students and a number of approaches are being used.

Among these are the incremental introduction of outside material, in what is called a blended course; a flipped classroom which makes material available to students outside the classroom and uses the classroom as a place to go over the material, ask questions, and work problems; online for-credit courses, as is the predominant method of instruction for institutions such as Nova Southeastern and Phoenix Universities; and MOOCs, non-credit, open admission, free courses offered by many of the most reputable US higher educational institutions.

This paper examines each of these approaches and discusses issues that arise when implementing that approach. Then the author offers a way to combine all of these through an integrated courseware system to allow instructors and institutions to offer courses that may be taken for credit or as MOOCs.
