Running NOUN-MOOC on MOOkit Platform: Insight from Collaboration Between Institute of Technology Kanpur and National Open University of Nigeria
As part of its effort to embrace the Massive Open Online Course (MOOCs) initiative and specifically to employ it as tool to improve access and equity in education, the National Open University of Nigeria (NOUN) launched its 1st Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) in June 2016. It is important to note that effective platform is an utamost necessity for an effective delivery of MOOCs. Thus being its first attempt, and quite new to this initiative, NOUN embraced a collaboration with Institute of Technology Kanpur which culminated in the deployment of the MOOKIT platform designed by this institution for its MOOCs. This paper therefore share experiences of this collaboration, with specific focus on the efficiency and effectiveness of the collaboration to deliver results. For clarity, this paper first provides brief insight on National Open University of Nigeria; definition and dimensions of MOOCs; insight on NOUN’s collaboration with IIT Kanpur and this involves the following: initial contact activities, features of the mooKIT platform, navigating the platform and the MOOC approach employed as well as motivation behind NOUN’s MOOC on history and philosophy of science. In the last section, the paper presents some learning analytics and feedback on ease and accessibility of the platform. It is hoped that insight from this experience will further strengthen the need for deeper collaboration in this area.// Paper ID 518
