Creating various online learning opportunities using a Small Private Online Course environment

An online learning environment using Open edX named "KoALA" was launched in April 2018 at Kyoto University as a Small Private Online Course (SPOC) environment. By using it, instructors can provide their online learning materials for on-campus students. Like Massive Open Online Course (MOOC), lecture videos, grading assignments, and other educational resources can be provided as a single course through KoALA. Also, KoALA can offer online learning materials in flexible formats according to instructors' needs such as those for flipped learning, remedial education and so forth. Some of the courses are open to the public if the purpose of the course is a social contribution, potential student acquisition and so on. A feedback session between the instructor, course production team and educational assessment team is held after each course end date by use of learners' course survey results and learning activities from analytics tool provided by Open edX. The session works as an opportunity for instructor's reflection and course improvement and plays a vital role in sustainable course offerings. This process of feedback is employed in our MOOC project. As our university has been offering MOOCs through edX, a large part of processes can be similarly applied to an on-campus case.
In this presentation, the background and process of building the online learning environment and unique practices by using it will be introduced. Also, prospective of such an environment are discussed especially in terms of the difference between MOOC and SPOC.
