This survey focuses on strategies of higher education institutions (HEIs) regarding MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses | http://bit.ly/1DrMxXy
). You are stimulated to complete the questions even if your institution decided not to offer MOOCs (yet). Please complete this survey only if you are familiar with the reasons why your institution is or isn’t involved in MOOCs.
The survey is largely a repetition of the survey of last year. The main purpose last year was to create a starting point to address the possible differences and similarities between HEIs in U.S. and Europe in their possible goals and the strategic choices behind the development of MOOCs. The report Institutional MOOC strategies in Europe (http://bit.ly/1DPs6Bc
) was published in February 2015. A scientific paper about these 2014 results will be published soon in IRRODL.
This year’s survey will continue to compare MOOC adoption strategies in Europe. Next to the comparison between Europe and the U.S. we will produce country reports if responses from individual countries is high enough. For this reason this survey is available in French <http://bit.ly/1WWGHEm
> and Turkish <http://bit.ly/1VNOoiR
> as well.
This survey is part of the HOME project (http://home.eadtu.eu
), co-funded by LLP of the European Commission. Closing date is extended to 3 January 2016. First results of this survey will be presented at the MOOC Conference organised by the HOME project in Rome, 30 November 2015. See: http://bit.ly/1NmFLHH
