Academic presentations can be uploaded in their original slide format. Presentations are usually represented as slide decks. Videos of presentations can be uploaded as media.
Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) are typically designed around a self-guided format that assumes learners can regulate their own learning, rather than relying on tutor guidance. However, MOOCs attract a diverse spectrum of learners, who differ in their ability and motivation to manage their own learning. This presentation discusses a group of studies exploring the behaviour of professionals using MOOCs to support informal learning. The conclusions highlight some lessons for designing online content whether for MOOCs or more traditional modes of learning.
