Learning about Social Learning in MOOCs: From Statistical Analysis to Generative Model

Christopher G. Brinton, Mung Chiang, Shaili Jain, Henry Lam, Zhenming Liu, Felix Ming Fai Wong
2014 IEEE Transactions on Learning Technologies  
Since social learning is a key element of scalable education on MOOC and is done via online discussion forums, our main focus is on understanding forum activities.  ...  In our analysis, we investigate factors that are associated with the decline of activity on MOOC forums, and we find effective strategies to classify threads and rank their relevance.  ...  ACKNOWLEDGMENTS This work is in part supported by an ARO grant W911 NF-14-1-0190, a Princeton University grant, and a Guggenheim Fellowship.  ...

Communication Communities in MOOCs [article]

Nabeel Gillani, Rebecca Eynon, Michael Osborne, Isis Hjorth, Stephen Roberts
2014 arXiv   pre-print
Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) bring together thousands of people from different geographies and demographic backgrounds -- but to date, little is known about how they learn or communicate.  ...  We see that BNMF yields a superior probabilistic generative model for online discussions when compared to other models, and that the communities it learns are differentiated by their composite students  ...  Thanks also to Chris Davies and Bav Radia in Oxford's Department of Education for their help in content analysis, and Taha Yasseri, Ioannis Psorakis, Rory Beard, Tom Gunther, and Chris Lloyd for their  ...

Watching MOOCs together: investigating co-located MOOC study groups

Nan Li, Himanshu Verma, Afroditi Skevi, Guillaume Zufferey, Jan Blom, Pierre Dillenbourg
2014 Distance Education  
Recent research also suggests that MOOC students may prefer to study in groups. Social facilitation within the study groups may render the learning of difficult concepts a pleasing experience.  ...  The research reveals that students like to stay synchronized in the group while watching MOOC videos.  ...  As MOOC learning is often centred on lecture videos, a more general group-based learning pedagogical approach could leverage this activity.  ...
