The report details the UK MOOC landscape, and shares findings from interviews with MOOC teachers.
The three key concluding messages the report emphasises are:
- MOOCs are multiple: we can no longer define them either as a single ‘transformative’ entity or clearly position them in terms of the previously dominant cMOOC/xMOOC binary.
- MOOC pedagogy is not embedded in MOOC platform, but is negotiated and emergent, a sociomaterial and discipline-informed issue.
- The teacher persists in the MOOC: though reworked and disaggregated, the teaching function and teacherly professionalism remain central.
