OERs Rule, MOOCs DROOL: MOOCs and DistRibuted Open Online Learning

The "wrapped MOOC" has gained attention over the past year as a way to integrate MOOCs into traditional education. This presentation will present results of interviews with practitioners of this method to show that in practice most educators are not "wrapping" the cohort experience, but are instead using the MOOC as robust OER. This trend is discussed in terms of ?distributed flip? and ?distributed blend? models, as well as David Wiley?s joking but correct observation that MOOCs are distraction from the potential of DROOL (DistRibuted Open Online Learning). Implications include a hidden but high demand for robust, course-level OER, and the possible desirability of approaching blended learning from the online experience ?backwards?, as opposed to the traditional model which emphasizes the online refitting of an existing or assumed face-to-face experience.
