- ItemOpen AccessInnovations In MOOC Platforms for Improved User Experience(2019-09) Vadlamani, Aditya; Revathy, K T; Prabhakar, T VMassive Open Online Courses or MOOCs quickly established themselves as important components of education. The software for delivering MOOCs is a MOOC management system - a well-known example being openEdX. A MOOC management system is a sophisticated piece of software and is typically designed to deliver MOOCs for an audience with good internet connections. Often this is not the case in a developing country - the bandwidth is limited, costly, and intermittent. With this in mind, we designed and developed a MOOC Management System, mooKIT, with innovative ways of addressing this issue. We also address the problem of students being dependent on the credential issuing authority for verification.// Paper ID 146
- ItemOpen AccessmooKIT - A MOOC Platform for Developing Countries(2018-06) Prabhakar, T V; Balaji, Venkataraman; Revathy, K TIIT Kanpur and Commonwealth of Learning (COL) have been working on Massive Open Online Courses since 2012. During this collaboration we developed a MOOC Management system and delivered close to 30 courses to about 200 000 users, in over 100 countries. Our understanding of what features a MOOC Management System should have and how to engage the students in a course has also evolved. In this paper we describe our experiences and trace how some of our software features have evolved. One of the core features is the development and integration of an advanced analytics module. We also discuss how to reduce dropouts from an open online course, a common concern for all MOOCs. // Presented at the International Conference on Multidisciplinary Research (MyRes), Pointe aux Piments, Mauritius, 22-23 June 2018.
