¿Qué ha sucedido con los cursos "dual layer MOOC" de EDX, UT Arlington y la Fundación Gates? ¿Qué cosa es ahora la Educación Universitaria con Tecnología?


Los cursos "dual layer" constituyen una interesante evolución de los MOOC. De hecho puede decirse que junto con los nanodegrées y los entornos LPSS se perfilan como unas posibles formas emergentes de la futura educación universitaria que se consoliden como la nueva educación superior del siglo 21, de la nueva sociedad postindustrial, junto con otras opciones de educación abierta de rendimiento.
A un nivel mucho más modesto, artesanal, estamos iniciando por segundo año desde la Universidad de Alcalá un curso investigativo con un diseño que se inspira en alguna medida en los cursos "dual layer", aunque solo sea en la estructura y en ciertos aspectos formales y de organización. La metodología docente y la evaluación tienen que ver con la personalización y el "mastery learning".
El día 26 de diciembre estaba preparando un módulo del curso, en el que se explicaba a los alumnos precisamente cómo era el curso, como se progresaba en él, etc. Necesité acceder a la información que sobre la propuesta de EDX había, tanto de George Siemens como de  Matt Crosslin, y en ese momento los enlaces estaban rotos. Había desaparecido el blog elearnSpace, de George Siemens. Podría haber sido un problema mío, pero después cuando escribí en Facebook parece ser que los demás, al menos Grainne Conole, también lo observaron, como se desprende de su comentario en el coloquio que reproduzco. Esto sucedió antes de las 12,31am del sábado 26 de diciembre, y duró hasta no después de las 21,57 del mismo día.

Buscando los últimos escritos de Siemens me encontré con este titulado significativamente Adios Ed Tech. Hola something else, con un contenido muy acentuado de ruptura con algo, e incluso como después veremos de despecho con el giro qu etomaba de deshumanización la educación tecnológica. Ese post aparecía en un espacio de TEKRI, el instituto de tecnología educativa de Athabasca, y reproducía otro post de elearnspace, en ese momento desaparecido. Ahora he comprobado que ese es el último post aparecido hasta este momento en el blog de elearnspace.

Estas coincidencias me llamaron la atención, y es por lo que desencadené el siguiente coloquio en Facebook. Lo conservo y lo saco aquí no tanto por la situación que se pudo haber producido y su análisis como por los algunos de los interesantes que se produjeron en su trascurso, sobre los que podemos seguir debatiendo y analizando. Creo que vivimos una interesante coyuntura en la evolución de la enseñanza abierta universitaria.

Does anyone know what happened to George Siemens and elearnspace? I can not access the posts, and I need some. Nor do I understand the sense of this post. Is there something behind?https://tekri.athabascau.ca/aggregator/sources/6

Donald Clark cMOOCs never took off and 'connectivism' proved an impoverished theory of learning. Way off on adaptive learning - he doesn't really understand what it is.Ver traducción


Miguel Zapata-Ros All that we know, Donald. I was the first to criticize connectivism in Spanish http://eprints.rclis.org/17463/.
But now the question is what happens?
Siemens was in Arlington, working on a model course "dual layer" with the Gates Foundation
http://redesabiertas.blogspot.com.es/2014_09_01_archive.html andhttp://www.edugeekjournal.com/.../designing-a-dual-layer.../...
And that has disappeared along with elearnspace.
Does anyone know anything?

Stephen Downes If the 'connectivism is wrong' explanation is accurate, then why do I continue my work and make progress in the space? I don't think that's it. There are more MOOCs today than ever, there's still a lot of funding around them. The problem, if there's really a problem, is that the concept was hijacked and monetized by the big-money people.Ver traducción









Juan Domingo Farnós Miró Esa es la idea que siempre he defendido, maestro y amigo Stephen Downes.



Miguel Zapata-Ros Arlington is a golden kidnapping, Stephen.
I would like to be kidnapped there.
But I think the seats are occupied. 
Emoticono smile


Miguel Zapata-Ros In addition to the struggle of connectivism, someone knows what's going on with "dual layer"?


Miguel Zapata-Ros He has appeared elearnspace ¡¿?! and dual layerhttp://www.elearnspace.org/.../multiple-pathways.../


Donald Clark cMOOC xMOOC binary was always flawed. World has moved on.Ver traducción


Miguel Zapata-Ros It is not so simple, Donald. I hold the following thesis: The MOOCs are a fishery, fishing talent at low cost. Without investment in teachers, teaching aid, without infrastructure. To offer these talents to technology companies, as highly skilled workforce but almost without cost.
But the model requires refinement.
Thus MOOCs become: Nanodegrees courses and dual-layer (A layer is MOOC and other master).
In nanodgree get rid of fats.
With dual-layer recover participants to master (high cost).

I feel my English is translated with Google. And my text is very streamlined to make it a little legible.


Antonio Dias Figueiredo I don’t know about George Siemens’s current intellectual whereabouts, but I can only agree with his statement “Adios Ed Tech. Hola something else”. In a presentation I made at the University of São Paulo, last September, entitled “ITC in Education: Beyond the ITC”, I also claimed that “ICT will only be fully integrated in education when we stop talking about ITC” (slide 4).

Miguel Zapata-Ros Possibly the temporary disappearance of elearnspace is an accident. Or only some have perceived.
But if we look at the production of Siemens, from its stay in Arlington, there are only two posts in elearnspace on "dual layer". And in general is very little compared with the previous .
Hence the question: what is behind the post "Adios Ed Tech.
Hola something else"?...Ver más


Donald Clark Does it matter? The people who want to stop progress need to step aside for the people doing the real work?Ver traducción


Miguel Zapata-Ros Obviously, no, Donald. We can continue working.
But in this case there is much power concentrated. EDX, the University of Texas at Arlington and the Belinda and Bill Gates Foundation support "dual layer" courses. Define a trend. And my work is a necessary reference.
At least as I see it.. Emoticono smile

Carl Reidsema I think Miguel is correct in the MOOCs are a signpost along the way. I found George's most recent blogs a few weeks ago but the link is on my laptop and I'm currently doing my Sunday morning laying in with my iPad. I'll flick it to you mañana. In his m...Ver másVer traducción


Donald Clark Of course MOOCs are just one tributary in online learning but I'll stick to the baubles. We owe learners more than a diet of often dull lectures, limited feedback and debt. I find the description of major areas of effort in online learning a s 'baubles' beneath contempt.Ver traducción


Carl Reidsema Well Gee Donald, didn't mean to inflame your ire. Apologies. What I was attempting to convey is what I find equally contemptible but not enough that I would ever label it as contemptible which is this curious belief that the solutions to many of the problems in higher ed can and should be solved by technology. That doesn't mean that I think someone who puts effort into technology is wasting their time though. Far from it. For me MOOCs have been a God send because the rush by university leaders to participate with MIT has given legitimacy and a greater interest in the flipped classroom work that I'm doing here in Australia. I run an on campus flipped class of 1200 students without a single lecture by the way. This has led to me now being a director of an eLearning centre which as you might imagine has a strong interest in technology. But I am not that interested in technology for technology's sake and cannot help but notice that it is far easier for me to synthesise a successful funding proposal that is about technology than it is to do so if it were about students and their learning. I call this the "machines that go ping!" phenomena which I am happy to exploit but am unhappy that I have to.Ver traducción


Carl Reidsema This is the last posting that I recall from George. I quite enjoyed it as I said. He was supposed to be the keynote speaker at our Teaching and Learning Awards on the 2nd of November but was a no show due to illness or family or something. http://www.elearnspace.org/blog/Ver traducción

Miguel Zapata-Ros Hello, it dawns in Spain. Last night I was not in the discussion.
It is very interesting discussion about your education and technology. But my concern is not about her at this time. Not about Mr. Siemens.

The question is: There is a twig in this scheme, below:
http://2.bp.blogspot.com/.../Cq4Pi4J1-zU/s1600/LPSS.jpg

Where it says xMOOC ---> EDX ---> dual layer courses

IT IS on this.

Something has happened? What happened?

My hypothesis is: EXD, Gates Foundation and Arlington attracted to the group (Siemens, Dragan, Dave et al) as a marketing operation. To redirect the flow from the cMOOC toward their new courses.
But Siemens et al were a kind of adornment. (See
http://redesabiertas.blogspot.com.es/.../la-evolucion-de... paragraph 6)

My interpretation is that SOMETHING HAS HAPPENED.

And, as a reaction of defiance, Siemens has written the post "Goodbye Ed Tech. Hello something else."

It's just an exegesis. Do you think it is exaggerated?

I care a lot for my job.

Thanks and happy day



Carl Reidsema Hmmmm.... An intriguing hypothesis Miguel!   Ver traducciónFinal del formulario
