The idea with this book is to create a book, similar to Theory and Practice of Online Learning (link: http://cde.athabascau.ca/online_book/)It will be available for free as an eBook but also available in Print. I have put two contributors per chapter, but there can be more than two or fewer than two. It was just easy to copy/paste. IMPORTANT: Each chapter needs a team lead (otherwise it won’t get done). If you are interested in being a team lead, add an asterisk (*) next to your name.

Chapter 11: A Framework for MOOC Evaluation Contributor Names: ○ Rebecca Hogue ○ Apostolos Koutropoulos


○ Osvaldo Rodriguez ○ Nilgün Özdamar Keskin Chapter Abstract/contents I put this here - but don’t know that it necessarily belongs here. I would like to develop a framework and ask MOOC creators to use it as much as possible so that we can compare MOOCs against each other - right now all the data collection is ad-hoc and different for each MOOC. It would be great if we had a single framework. I would love collaborators on this! It sounds like this is already being done - I’m happy to take my name off and let others do it Rebecca. I’m more interested in MOOC design, but felt the need for an evaluation framework as a means of testing the design. I’m happy to use another’s framework - or collaborate on a new one .. whatever.

Chapter 19: Open, or not? Contributor Names: ○ Contributor 1 ○ Contributor 2 Chapter Abstract/contents Given the debate on whether a certain MOOC is open or not (see stanford AI course and the requirement of the textbook, or MobiMOOC with people not liking that some resources shared were behind closed databases). I think it would be good to have two points of view in the format of an essay for each one where one person (or team) takes on the task of defining openness as wide open (just free materials) and one team defending the “partly open” or the “it’s OK if some things cost” point of view. Maybe we can have a referee that can summarize and conclude this chapter before and after both essays. Chapter location (separate Google Doc): http://www.....
