Among the various MOOC platforms, which really work as mobile platforms? The FutureLearn platform in the UK was meant to have been designed with mobile in mind from the start. I have not done a MOOC on FutureLearn yet, and may very well find myself factilitating or teaching one soon enough, so I would really like to know if learning through FutureLearn, or any other MOOC platform, works well via mobile devices.
To this end, I have created an extremely short survey — 4 questions! — to try and get a flavour of MOOC learners’ mobile experience. If you have participated in a MOOC and attempted to do so via a mobile device or two, please would you take the survey here: http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/53F3V2H
I will be reporting the results of the survey next week at our Open Education Week webinar entitled New Global Open Educational Trends: Policy, Learning Design, and Mobile, on 11 March 2013 at 12.30 GMT. The Open Education Week website has details of how to join in – everyone is invited!
And I will report my survey findings on this blog as well.
