Session Table Name: BOLZANO

This interactive workshop addresses the quality of Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) and is organized by MOOQ, the European Alliance for Quality of MOOCs, and Moodle, the leading open international Learning Management System.

Main goal of the interactive workshop is the discussion how we can improve the design and quality of MOOCs using the open platform Moodle.

First, the results from latest MOOC research including the Global MOOC Quality Survey (GMQS) and the resulted Quality Reference Framework (QRF) for MOOCs will be introduced.

Second, the open platform Moodle will be explained in relation to its usage for designing MOOCs.

Leading question will be: How can we benefit from the Quality Reference Framework and the Moodle platform to improve future design and quality of MOOCs?

The hands-on interactive workshop of 50 minutes combines different methods:

In the first short part (10 minutes), the results of the latest MOOC research on the MOOC quality will be presented including the introduction of the Quality Reference Framework as valuable instrument for both, MOOC beginners and experts.

In the second short part (10 minutes), the Moodle platform will be introduced by the Moodle founder explaining options to design and run MOOCs using Moodle plugins.

The main third part (30 minutes) is a hands-on question-and-answer session debated in an Interactive World Cafe style: All quality criteria from the Quality Reference Framework as well as all Moodle plugins are investigated as to how they fit and contribute to improve the quality of MOOCs for learners, designers and providers of MOOCs. The results from the small groups will be presented in a short plenary. Finally, next activities towards a joint future collaboration and activities are explored by all participants.

Intended audience: All experts, practitioners and novices sharing interest in Open Education and the quality of MOOCs
