The Best of Both Worlds:
mLearning & MOOCs as a Training Strategy
Inge Ignatia de Waard
New technologies, new pedagogies
Mobile devices, mobility, social media, MOOCs…
We are all in this together
As knowledge speeds up, one person no longer knows.
We need to team up to grow stronger, to stay one step ahead.

(OER on mLearning and growing)
Bubble or here to stay?
Lots of discussions on MOOC
• MOOC will change (higher) education ... or not
• Higher Ed business models are questioned
• Sustainability?
• Trainer implications....
MOOC is a Massive Open Online Course, using innovative
educational technologies and which can be followed all over
the world by anyone in a connected area and with a computer.
mLearning and MOOC
mLearning MOOC
Similarities
Reaching a broad and global audience, informal learning, building a community
Content creation, social media enabled, open to multiple learner dynamics, personal
Differences
Contextualized, authentic learning Stronger emphasis on peer learning
Constantly mobile Big content size consumption/production
Just-in-time learning Lifelong learning (full courses) options
Learning everywhere and at any time Learning anytime but linked to
connectivity (synchronous/asynchronous)
Immediate pushed information option Builds upon online learning options
Specialized mobile apps Used more frequently in Higher Ed (now)
Augmented learning
Ubiquity is a growing fact, BUT
Most MOOCs aren’t designed with mobile pedagogy in mind, which :
• builds a digital gap for worldwide learner access
• keeps out a lot of mLearning options, pedagogies and capacities
Merging mLearning and MOOCs offers meaningful training
options, and adds to learning efficiency.
Options: listening, reading, connecting
Look and decide what might be of interest to you or download this presentation later
on to reflect upon.
Or you can have a look at the eBook Mooc YourSelf. It is made for Kindle, BUT you do
not need to have a Kindle to read it. You can download a free app to read it, see here.
Building optimal mobile MOOCs takes months, but knowing what to watch out for will
save time and provide a better feeling to all stakeholders and participants.

Fusing MOOCs with mLearning?
Mobile/ubiquitous/e-learning/MOOC … in the
end it will become learning again.
It is not only about technology, it is also about
us learners becoming mobile learners. In this
new world, all of us have become nomads
(again), traveling further than our
ancestors, for a variety of reasons while
knowing more and keeping updated.
Mobile learning:
"learning across multiple contexts, through
social and content interactions, using personal
electronic devices" (Helen
Crompton, 2012), mLearning becomes generic
learning.
Mobile MOOC as part of
your learning strategy
Where do you see it? What would help you?
• As an add-on to strengthen experts
• As a stand-alone course
• As an emergency course deployment (disaster, epidemic…)
• To promote what you are doing by inviting others to engage
• Do you have preferred embed options?
– Rapid learning in the field, content creation and sharing as events unfold…
– Getting the latest information to all and support discussions to ensure
quality…
– A closed course?

What is it you have, that gets added
value in adding mobile MOOCs
• Are your online courses build for mobile
access and interaction?
• What are the existing strengths of your
learning architecture and approach?
(collaboration, diversity, prior
projects, expertise in all or some of
technology, …)
• What are the needs? (what is not
addressed with the solutions you have
or can be optimized?)
• What are the dilemma’s or
opportunities / map possible areas of
resistance or eagerness?
• What is the overall feeling of MOOCs?
Who in your organization followed
a/many MOOCs? What do they think?
You know what works
• Communication = mobile devices: simple phone calls work for
learning/exchanging knowledge
• Sms and/or e-mail are simple, yet functional also with mobile phones
• People/learners use their phones for sharing pictures, ideas… these skills can be
used in a course related learning dynamic
• BYOD, smartphones,….
• Mobile social media that your personnel uses already…
But how much of these is embedded in overall online learning?
Challenges in getting it right
• Offering mobile seamless
learning (ubiquitous access is
easier said than done)
• Bring Your Own Device brings
along several challenges
• Allowing peers to connect
relevantly, means allowing
them to become connected
and trusting
• Keeping a flow in learning
(Csikszentmihalyi) ensures
quick learning

What to consider when embedding
mLearning into MOOC or online learning
Answer to the need, but build for the future:
• Go step by step: slowly adding complementary, autonomous,
adaptable pieces of the overall learning puzzle (first one: priority
need or eager target population)
• Build from simple to complex, get buy in from all stakeholders
• Participatory evaluation and development
• Prepare for perpetual beta: Solutions of today might not be there
tomorrow: build your learning solutions so they can be adapted
easily (or replaced in small pieces).
• Extra costs for the end user (e.g. BYOD = cost, dataplans)
• How learner centered do you want it to (not) be?
Get buy in from everyone
Move forward thoughtfully:
• Get early adopters on board
• Show and share success stories
• Understand what your learners use already and build a project on
their skills/tech turf
• Keep what works, add what is needed
• Acknowledge time to cope with change, to grow and connect

No one stop solution –
only multiple organic structures
• Different people => different mobilities
• Different countries/regions => different infrastructure
• Different circumstances => different needs
• Different history => different pedagogies/cultures
Central question: Does it add value to a learner/target audience?
If your learners aren’t interested, …
you didn’t come up with the right solution YET!
21st century: meta design & skills
Design: applications are out there, solutions
are out there: create a learning environment
that incorporates the learning options there
are based on the learning affordances that fit
your audience with your audience OR get
onboard with existing mobile MOOC options.
You do not need to invent new stuff or invest
in expensive solutions that need to be
developed. Use what is out there in a
creative, pedagogically sound way.
Digital skills: curating content, critical
thinking, using technology… this strengthens
and empowers any student to become a
lifelong learner.

Research into the effect of mobile access
on learner interactions in a MOOC
• The full mobile impact on MOOC thesis can be
accessed here).
Research: mobile learners enter into
more interactions => more reflection
A mobile accessible course will result in more learner interactions
(more reflections, leading to knowledge creation).
Results (very brief):
• Mobile users engage more frequently in learner interactions than
the non-mobile users in a MOOC. Additionally mobile users engage
more in follow-up messages leading to increased understanding.
• Mobile users engaged more in learner interaction, which they also
find of more importance. Self-regulated learning was more present
in mobile learners (easier to manage time and balance
work/life/family), mobile users were less dependent on time and
location to access the course.
• Ubiquity results in the learners selecting the tool they feel most
comfortable with to access the course (heightens ownership).
Strategies on design, self-directed
learning and digital skills
Design
• Offer a ubiquitous learning environment based on BYOD design and
content, making use of existing ubiquitous tools (social media, e-mail…) so
people can switch between devices at their own preference.
• Create a user-friendly, one button centralized access learning
environment, linked to a clear course overview to increase transparency,
user-friendliness .
Self-directed learning
• Provide self-directed learning strategies to the learners.
• Provide the learner with a mobile course overview/structure that s/he
can organize for self-directing learning purposes.
• Enabling immediate access to content/discussion areas adds to time
management and self-directed learning.
Digital skills
• Increase the necessary (mobile) digital skills of the learner. If a course is
accessible for a multitude of devices, it affects (the need for) digital skills,
because multiple devices have multiple characteristics and affordances.
Strategies on content, human learning
environment and course activities
Content
• Offer an array of course materials, varying from bite size snacks to big, time
consuming content. Offering the learner a choice to tailor the content to their
current contexts.
• Provide a sense of ownership about the content and the learning: BYOD,
contextualized options, this adds to the overall learner motivation.
Human learning environment
• Ensure a safe learning environment. This essential to increase learner interactions
in general. Tolerance, trust, daring to write in a non-native language and knowing
that one can pose every content related question and not being judged for it is
essential.
• Allow networks to emerge. A community feeling based upon easy (mobile) access
increases the formation of a more durable professional network for those
connecting to each other in a way that surpasses the course duration.
Course activities
• Embed icebreaker activities and/or discussions at the beginning of the course
that demand only a fraction of time to interact and can be accessed cross devices.
These activities should also be linked to intellectual topics.

Embed learning motivation
• Earn as you learn (e.g. participants/teams/communities
can get something, but they have to learn/work for it)
• Allow Champions or Big Watusi leaders to emerge (those
learners that add content that makes a difference)
• Offer badges to allow your learners/communities to show
off what they have learned (e.g. Open Badges Mozilla)

Embed mobile social media wisely
Biggest shift: human tech training factor
Challenges for
• Overall coordinators
• Helpdesk and architecture
• Topic specific facilitators / guides-on-the-side / trainers
• Learners
=> More interactions, more emergence!
The coordinator & trainers keep
everyone extra motivated
• Everyone knows her/his role and the challenges of
a mobile MOOC (chaos, overload, rapid responses)
• Trainers are guides-on-the-side
• Keeping people motivated by connecting and
keeping informed and course oriented (timeline)
• Provide guidance for self-directed learning
• Get in touch with potential drop-outs
=> interactions are stimulated
mLearning and MOOCs work
Merging the benefits of mobile learning with the
reach and power of MOOCs will create a strong,
ubiquitous, international training/learning platform.
But challenges must be wisely tackled to ensure a
smooth learning experience for all.

mLearning and MOOCs as an optimal training environment

  • 1. The Best of Both Worlds: mLearning & MOOCs as a Training Strategy Inge Ignatia de Waard
  • 2. New technologies, new pedagogies Mobile devices, mobility, social media, MOOCs…
  • 3. We are all in this together As knowledge speeds up, one person no longer knows. We need to team up to grow stronger, to stay one step ahead. http://mobimooc.wikispaces.com (OER on mLearning and growing)
  • 4. Bubble or here to stay? Lots of discussions on MOOC • MOOC will change (higher) education ... or not • Higher Ed business models are questioned • Sustainability? • Trainer implications.... MOOC is a Massive Open Online Course, using innovative educational technologies and which can be followed all over the world by anyone in a connected area and with a computer.
  • 5. mLearning and MOOC mLearning MOOC Similarities Reaching a broad and global audience, informal learning, building a community Content creation, social media enabled, open to multiple learner dynamics, personal Differences Contextualized, authentic learning Stronger emphasis on peer learning Constantly mobile Big content size consumption/production Just-in-time learning Lifelong learning (full courses) options Learning everywhere and at any time Learning anytime but linked to connectivity (synchronous/asynchronous) Immediate pushed information option Builds upon online learning options Specialized mobile apps Used more frequently in Higher Ed (now) Augmented learning
  • 6. Ubiquity is a growing fact, BUT Most MOOCs aren’t designed with mobile pedagogy in mind, which : • builds a digital gap for worldwide learner access • keeps out a lot of mLearning options, pedagogies and capacities Merging mLearning and MOOCs offers meaningful training options, and adds to learning efficiency.
  • 7. Options: listening, reading, connecting Look and decide what might be of interest to you or download this presentation later on to reflect upon. Or you can have a look at the eBook Mooc YourSelf. It is made for Kindle, BUT you do not need to have a Kindle to read it. You can download a free app to read it, see here. Building optimal mobile MOOCs takes months, but knowing what to watch out for will save time and provide a better feeling to all stakeholders and participants.
  • 8. General stuff Build on Your Strengths Plan & Organize Diversifying 4 Human Nature Does it make a difference? Online Community: Tech + Human
  • 9. Fusing MOOCs with mLearning? Mobile/ubiquitous/e-learning/MOOC … in the end it will become learning again. It is not only about technology, it is also about us learners becoming mobile learners. In this new world, all of us have become nomads (again), traveling further than our ancestors, for a variety of reasons while knowing more and keeping updated. Mobile learning: "learning across multiple contexts, through social and content interactions, using personal electronic devices" (Helen Crompton, 2012), mLearning becomes generic learning.
  • 10. Mobile MOOC as part of your learning strategy Where do you see it? What would help you? • As an add-on to strengthen experts • As a stand-alone course • As an emergency course deployment (disaster, epidemic…) • To promote what you are doing by inviting others to engage • Do you have preferred embed options? – Rapid learning in the field, content creation and sharing as events unfold… – Getting the latest information to all and support discussions to ensure quality… – A closed course?
  • 11. General stuff Build on Your Strengths Plan & Organize Diversifying 4 Human Nature Does it make a difference? Online Community: Tech + Human
  • 12. What is it you have, that gets added value in adding mobile MOOCs • Are your online courses build for mobile access and interaction? • What are the existing strengths of your learning architecture and approach? (collaboration, diversity, prior projects, expertise in all or some of technology, …) • What are the needs? (what is not addressed with the solutions you have or can be optimized?) • What are the dilemma’s or opportunities / map possible areas of resistance or eagerness? • What is the overall feeling of MOOCs? Who in your organization followed a/many MOOCs? What do they think?
  • 13. You know what works • Communication = mobile devices: simple phone calls work for learning/exchanging knowledge • Sms and/or e-mail are simple, yet functional also with mobile phones • People/learners use their phones for sharing pictures, ideas… these skills can be used in a course related learning dynamic • BYOD, smartphones,…. • Mobile social media that your personnel uses already… But how much of these is embedded in overall online learning?
  • 14. Challenges in getting it right • Offering mobile seamless learning (ubiquitous access is easier said than done) • Bring Your Own Device brings along several challenges • Allowing peers to connect relevantly, means allowing them to become connected and trusting • Keeping a flow in learning (Csikszentmihalyi) ensures quick learning
  • 15. General stuff Build on Your Strengths Plan & Organize Diversifying 4 Human Nature Does it make a difference? Online Community: Tech + Human
  • 16. What to consider when embedding mLearning into MOOC or online learning Answer to the need, but build for the future: • Go step by step: slowly adding complementary, autonomous, adaptable pieces of the overall learning puzzle (first one: priority need or eager target population) • Build from simple to complex, get buy in from all stakeholders • Participatory evaluation and development • Prepare for perpetual beta: Solutions of today might not be there tomorrow: build your learning solutions so they can be adapted easily (or replaced in small pieces). • Extra costs for the end user (e.g. BYOD = cost, dataplans) • How learner centered do you want it to (not) be?
  • 17. Get buy in from everyone Move forward thoughtfully: • Get early adopters on board • Show and share success stories • Understand what your learners use already and build a project on their skills/tech turf • Keep what works, add what is needed • Acknowledge time to cope with change, to grow and connect
  • 18. General stuff Build on Your Strengths Plan & Organize Diversifying 4 Human Nature Does it make a difference? Online Community: Tech + Human
  • 19. No one stop solution – only multiple organic structures • Different people => different mobilities • Different countries/regions => different infrastructure • Different circumstances => different needs • Different history => different pedagogies/cultures Central question: Does it add value to a learner/target audience? If your learners aren’t interested, … you didn’t come up with the right solution YET!
  • 20. 21st century: meta design & skills Design: applications are out there, solutions are out there: create a learning environment that incorporates the learning options there are based on the learning affordances that fit your audience with your audience OR get onboard with existing mobile MOOC options. You do not need to invent new stuff or invest in expensive solutions that need to be developed. Use what is out there in a creative, pedagogically sound way. Digital skills: curating content, critical thinking, using technology… this strengthens and empowers any student to become a lifelong learner.
  • 21. General stuff Build on Your Strengths Plan & Organize Diversifying 4 Human Nature Does mobile make a difference? Online Community: Tech + Human
  • 22. Research into the effect of mobile access on learner interactions in a MOOC • The full mobile impact on MOOC thesis can be accessed here).
  • 23. Research: mobile learners enter into more interactions => more reflection A mobile accessible course will result in more learner interactions (more reflections, leading to knowledge creation). Results (very brief): • Mobile users engage more frequently in learner interactions than the non-mobile users in a MOOC. Additionally mobile users engage more in follow-up messages leading to increased understanding. • Mobile users engaged more in learner interaction, which they also find of more importance. Self-regulated learning was more present in mobile learners (easier to manage time and balance work/life/family), mobile users were less dependent on time and location to access the course. • Ubiquity results in the learners selecting the tool they feel most comfortable with to access the course (heightens ownership).
  • 24. Strategies on design, self-directed learning and digital skills Design • Offer a ubiquitous learning environment based on BYOD design and content, making use of existing ubiquitous tools (social media, e-mail…) so people can switch between devices at their own preference. • Create a user-friendly, one button centralized access learning environment, linked to a clear course overview to increase transparency, user-friendliness . Self-directed learning • Provide self-directed learning strategies to the learners. • Provide the learner with a mobile course overview/structure that s/he can organize for self-directing learning purposes. • Enabling immediate access to content/discussion areas adds to time management and self-directed learning. Digital skills • Increase the necessary (mobile) digital skills of the learner. If a course is accessible for a multitude of devices, it affects (the need for) digital skills, because multiple devices have multiple characteristics and affordances.
  • 25. Strategies on content, human learning environment and course activities Content • Offer an array of course materials, varying from bite size snacks to big, time consuming content. Offering the learner a choice to tailor the content to their current contexts. • Provide a sense of ownership about the content and the learning: BYOD, contextualized options, this adds to the overall learner motivation. Human learning environment • Ensure a safe learning environment. This essential to increase learner interactions in general. Tolerance, trust, daring to write in a non-native language and knowing that one can pose every content related question and not being judged for it is essential. • Allow networks to emerge. A community feeling based upon easy (mobile) access increases the formation of a more durable professional network for those connecting to each other in a way that surpasses the course duration. Course activities • Embed icebreaker activities and/or discussions at the beginning of the course that demand only a fraction of time to interact and can be accessed cross devices. These activities should also be linked to intellectual topics.
  • 26. General stuff Build on Your Strengths Plan & Organize Diversifying 4 Human Nature Technical considerations Online Community: Tech + Human
  • 27. Embed learning motivation • Earn as you learn (e.g. participants/teams/communities can get something, but they have to learn/work for it) • Allow Champions or Big Watusi leaders to emerge (those learners that add content that makes a difference) • Offer badges to allow your learners/communities to show off what they have learned (e.g. Open Badges Mozilla)
  • 28. Mobile enabled social media tool Why use it Knowledge Age Challenge Addressed Blogs (Examples: wordpress, blogger, posterous) To reflect on what is learned, or what the learner thinks is of importance. Keeping a learning archive. Reflecting on the learning itself. Commenting on content. Self-regulated learning. Lifelong Learning. Becoming active, critical content producer. . Discussion enabler: Listserv (Examples: Google groups, Yahoo groups) Generating and maintaining discussions. Getting a group feeling going via dialogue. Enabling dialogue. Collaboration. Self-regulated learning. Informal learning. Social Networking (examples: Facebook, Google+, LinkedIn) Building a network of people that can add to the knowledge creation of the learner. Enables networking. Collaboration. Enabling dialogue. Informal learning. Becoming active, critical content producer. … Link to Google document with more social media tools Embed mobile social media wisely
  • 29. Biggest shift: human tech training factor Challenges for • Overall coordinators • Helpdesk and architecture • Topic specific facilitators / guides-on-the-side / trainers • Learners => More interactions, more emergence!
  • 30. The coordinator & trainers keep everyone extra motivated • Everyone knows her/his role and the challenges of a mobile MOOC (chaos, overload, rapid responses) • Trainers are guides-on-the-side • Keeping people motivated by connecting and keeping informed and course oriented (timeline) • Provide guidance for self-directed learning • Get in touch with potential drop-outs => interactions are stimulated
  • 31. mLearning and MOOCs work Merging the benefits of mobile learning with the reach and power of MOOCs will create a strong, ubiquitous, international training/learning platform. But challenges must be wisely tackled to ensure a smooth learning experience for all.
