I choose this MOOC because as I read the Rating & review of
the students the Rated 4.4 out of 5 of 36 ratings. Here are some
comments of the students to Learners and Learning MOOC:

 “Another excellent course in this series. Assists re-evaluating


aspects of the teaching profession.”
 “Great course! I learned about how to approach multicultural
classes.”
 “A teacher who cares and knows how to express that. I liked the
separation of the self assessment parts from the parts about
the great pedagogy who have gone before. The academic duty of
reverence of the great forbears is quite a separate activity
from the understanding of the children in one's own classroom,
even if the two activities feed each other.”
 “Really great course. Examines many important principles for
engaging with students and transformative learning.”
My Reflections/Insights...
 How can MOOC’s help you in your future career as a
professional teacher and as a lifelong learner?

Mooc’s can help me in my future career as a professional teacher and as


a lifelong learner by learning something while the budget is
constraint, Mooc’s can make global connections, Mooc’s can help me
to see what are the update about latest technology, and Mooc’s
will provide some tips how to teach.

 What did you learn from the way the providers use technology
to teach in the MOOC’s?

While the technology is still improving, the learning experience


is both enjoyable and satisfying.
From my personal perspective, there are areas that stand out for
different MOOC providers: Forum interaction is a huge bonus for
anyone who likes to interact with others in a more social context.
Not only does this make learning more fun, but the buzz of energy
from tens of thousands of student participants helps motivate
engagement and course completion. I believe the clear leader for
forums is Coursera. MOOCs present information in different ways.
Another way MOOC providers differentiate themselves is how they
structure courses.

 How will you prepare yourself for MOOCS, as a learner, and


as a teacher who may someday teach a MOOCS?

MOOCs give teachers a chance to see how other teachers work. I


have always believed in the value of learning about pedagogy from
observing other teachers. If they are good, you might decide to
emulate them; if they are bad, you might try to avoid repeating
their mistakes. In the case of MOOCS, I am not referring to the
instructor-created video lectures: I am referring to the entire
course experience. As a future educator this was one of my main
reasons why I need to participate in MOOCs. They allow me to
observe how they are designed and taught, and to learn from how
other participants react.

Valley", that:

FUTURE LEARN We believe learning should be an enjoyable,
social experience, so our courses offer the
opportunity to discuss what you’re learning with
others as you go, helping you make fresh
discoveries and form new ideas.

We offer a diverse selection of courses from


leading universities and cultural institutions
from around the world. These are delivered one
step at a time, and are accessible on mobile,
tablet and desktop, so you can fit learning
around your life.

We’re a private company wholly owned by The Open


University, with the benefit of over 40 years of
their experience in distance learning and online
education.

We have 40 partners from the UK, Europe, Africa,


Asia and the Middle East. These include many of
the best UK and international universities, as
well as institutions with a huge archive of
cultural and educational material, such as the
British Council, the British Library, the British
Museum, and the National Film and Television
School.
NovoEd NovoEd is committed to being on the cutting edge
of innovation in pedagogy, and our platform is
the only one designed to connect students to each
other and to their instructors around content at
scale.

Our student-centered online learning environment


enables you to tear down the walls of your
classroom and extend learning through a team-
based, collaborative, and project-based approach
at scale.

We help learners foster the competencies of


creative thinking, collaboration, and
communication in practice.

Our courses are built on sound pedagogical


foundations to help you learn to be a better team
player, creative thinker and problem solver in an
active, social, learning environment. Our
innovative technology keeps you connected with
other students so that you can exchange ideas,
work on group projects, get feedback, and form
relationships with other learners that last well
beyond the course's end.

Our rigorous reputation system, accountability


practices, and calibrated peer review enable
students to form a worthwhile network of peers
with similar interests and commitment whether
they are in the same location or different parts
of the world.
IVERSITY Our aim is not to replace universities, but to
empower academics.

Iversity.org is the European platform for online


learning that enables universities to share a
broad range courses with students from around the
globe, providing them with the opportunity to
earn recognized credentials, no matter where they
are.

We are specialized in working with the European


Credit Transfer and Accumulation System (ECTS).

We work in close cooperation with instructors,


higher education institutions and knowledge-based
companies to provide high-quality courses that
are engaging, interactive and fun.

Iversity makes higher education more accessible,


more affordable and more personalized.

With cultural sensitivity and passionate


commitment, it is our goal to bring higher
education into the digital age. We are young and
thrive on experimentation: we optimize our
technology and didactical methods to deliver the
best possible online education experience. In
other words, we practice what we teach: lifelong
learning.
CANVAS Canvas Network offers open, online courses taught
by educators everywhere.

We provides a place and platform where teachers,


students, and institutions worldwide can connect
and chart their own course for personal growth,
professional development, and academic inquiry.

Canvas Network is developed and supported by


Instructure, a technology company that partners
with educators, institutions, and technologists
to break down barriers to learning.

While other platforms offer only a subset of


online teaching tools, Canvas Network provides
all the ease and functionality of Canvas, the LMS
that makes teaching and learning easier for more
than 12 million users.

Instructure—the company behind Canvas LMS—built


it with open, adaptable, reliable, native cloud
technologies that empower learning in every
context.
OPEN2STUDY At Open2Study, we’re big believers in the idea
that connecting with other students is a powerful
way to learn.

Unlike students from other platforms, about one


in five Open2Study students are not only
completing their subjects, they’re also passing.

It’s about giving students the best possible


online education experience – and that’s
irrespective of the fact that it’s free.

It’s about finding the right topics at the right


level, creating short easy to digest videos and
offering a classroom designed to give you
everything you need at your fingertips.

What we really wanted to achieve with Open2Study


was collaboration. The typical activity you get
in an on-campus classroom is really difficult to
replicate online and we saw the space to build
this. We wanted to connect students with other
students from across the globe. That’s why we’re
constantly rolling out new features, like
messaging, connections, chat and Student Guides.
It’s also why we have such a strong focus on
social learning and the Open2Study community.
Open2Study tries to remove the barriers that can
make people hesitant to try online learning.
OPEN LEARNING Open Learning is an online learning platform that
goes beyond content delivery to focus on
community, connectedness, and student engagement.

We understand that for students to learn deeply,


they need to be active, engaged, inspired, and
involved. They need to interact with their peers,
connect dots between new and current knowledge
and they need to have fun in the process!

The Open Learning philosophy, which governs the


design of the platform's student and teacher
experience is based on the pedagogical
foundations of:

 Student empowerment, to foster deeper


learning through intrinsic motivation,
 Authentic, active learning experiences which
go beyond publishing content,
 Community and connectedness, to provide a
social platform with the best support,
encouragement, knowledge sharing, and
engagement.

We are both the Learning Environment and the


Student Hangout.
Traditional education providers view these as
separate spaces; we see them as the same thing.
UDEMY Udemy's mission is to help anyone learn anything.

We’re the world’s online learning marketplace,


where 6 million+ students are taking courses in
everything from programming to yoga to
photography–and much, much more. Each of our
25,000+ courses is taught by an expert
instructor, and every course is available on-
demand, so students can learn at their own pace,
on their own time, and on any device.

empower and inspire people to improve their lives
and change their worlds.
