The Best of Both Worlds – #mLearning and MOOCs


This presentation merges the benefits from mobile learning and MOOCs. The presentation was given during one of ADL Interagency Mobile Learning Webinars on 16 July 2013 by .

Highlight

Research: mobile learners enter into more interactions => more reflection A mobile accessible course will result in more learner interactions (more reflections, leading to knowledge creation). Results (very brief):

• Mobile users engage more frequently in learner interactions than the non-mobile users in a MOOC. Additionally mobile users engage more in follow-up messages leading to increased understanding.

• Mobile users engaged more in learner interaction, which they also find of more importance. Self-regulated learning was more present in mobile learners (easier to manage time and balance work/life/family), mobile users were less dependent on time and location to access the course.

• Ubiquity results in the learners selecting the tool they feel most comfortable with to access the course (heightens ownership).
