Search and Reuse of MOOC Content in On-Campus Instruction

Wednesday, February 20 | 10:45AM–11:30AM PT | Carmel, Fourth Floor
Session Type: Breakout Session
Delivery Format: Interactive Presentation
The massive open online course (MOOC) movement has been a catalyst for the creation of digital-learning materials, with over 100 institutions in the edX consortium creating nearly 500,000 individual videos, problems, and pages since 2012. Through a new initiative called DART: Digital Assets for Reuse in Teaching, we are unbundling edX content and other digital content sources such that resources are searchable and reusable in residential settings at Harvard. We will highlight key features of DART, introduce an architecture well aligned with the next generation digital learning environment (NGDLE), and discuss faculty use cases.

Outcomes: Better understand the current MOOC landscape and opportunities related to content sharing * Utilize a tool to create custom learning sequences from Harvard open-online resources * Learn about current use cases for MOOC content in residential instruction * Contribute ideas to a broader movement around digital-learning content sharing
