To train future Austrian teachers in using digital media, a novel didactic design was implemented at several universities in Austria in summer semester 2019: The course includes the participation in a MOOC (massive open online course) on the topic, an accompanying group work at the universities and multiple-choice tests conducted at the universitie...

... of the closure of the universities at the beginning of the COVID19 measures mid of March 2020 and the relocation of the complete classroom teaching to the virtual room, the design of this course also had to be adapted. Compared to other lectures and exercises, the transformation was rather simple: Group learning needed to be implemented online and the final exam will be an online test at the end of the current semester, which is available for a short time frame (see Figure 2). ...

We can use social media for many purposes but, communication and learning should be the primary purpose. Many open educational resources are already available in social media in different formats like audio, visual, Text, etc. This research aims...

L’objectif de cette recherche est d’explorer la manière dont sont conçus et mis en œuvre les dispositifs de formation des enseignants à distance (EAD, FOAD, MOOC, OER) à travers les représentions (beliefs) des formateurs. Nous savons déjà que les représentations des formateurs sur l’enseignement en général exercent une influence non négligeable sur...

... A tal proposito, è necessario ottimizzare lo strumento affinché risulti più motivante per chi ne usufruisce, ricorrendo ad esempio all'espediente della gamification e del game-based learning. Bisogna poi optare per piattaforme didattiche che prevedano materiali open source e dotati di licenze che consentano di raccogliere e modificare i contenuti 62 , o persino tradurli per superare eventuali barriere linguistiche. La modularità dei MOOC, infine, permette un apprendimento di tipo flessibile che promuove l'abbattimento di barriere connesse al carico di lavoro, all'organizzazione dei tempi e alla gestione di attività lavorative e formative parallele, rispetto alle quali possono essere adottate soluzioni più adattabili ed individualizzate. ...

This paper focuses on the digital evolution as a protagonist of training and educational processes, within the national and international panorama. In particular, the paper identifies the origins of the current technological didactic perspectives and declines them through the potential of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT). In addition, it focuses on recent didactic approaches adopted in digital learning environments, with a specific focus on MOOCs; with reference to this, it highlights the key role of the development of digital competence in teaching and learning. Digital competence is, in fact, declined as a key component of the eight key competences for lifelong learning and, in this sense, it is essential to reinforce and develop digital skills in teachers first of all.

The analysis of learner data in MOOCs provides numerous opportunities to look for patterns that may indicate participants' learning strategies. In this article, we investigated how participants in a MOOC (N=1,200), in which they must successfully complete a quiz in each unit, deal with the fact that they can repeat this quiz up to five times. On the one hand, patterns can be identified regarding the success of the quiz attempts: For example, 32.7% of the course participants always repeat the quizzes up to a full score, while about 16.0% of the participants repeat, but only until they pass all quizzes. Regarding the number of attempts, independent of the success, there is only a uniformity in "single attempt"; 12.6% of the participants only take exactly one attempt at each of the quizzes in the MOOC. An analysis of a subgroup of 80 learners which were students of a course where the MOOC was obligatory, shows that the proportion of learners attributed to patterns making more attempts is generally bigger. It can be shown as well that learners who uses several attempts, even after a full score results, tend to get better exam. The article concludes by discussing how these patterns can be interpreted and how they might influence future MOOC developments.
