Despite the completion rate for MOOCs is an average 15% according to latest papers, I have finished the five MOOCs I have started. Here’s the list with link to the specific post or the certificates themselves:
- 3D Printing Ninja (P2PU.org, 2012)
- Ser Más creativos (Universidad de México, Coursera, 2013)
- eLearning and Digital Cultures (University of Edimburgh Coursera.org, 2013)
- Gamification Design (Iversity.org, 2014)
- Gamification (University of Pennsylvania, Coursera, 2016)
A few weeks ago I completed the fifth one, again on #Gamification. This time from a business minded perspective. It was a very straight-forward course: video, quiz, open question to a discussion board, video, video quiz, long quiz, written assessment, peer evaluation and over again. I imagine that is what most people want, so that is what Coursera offers. It wasn’t bad at all, don’t get me wrong, but I still think eLearning could make learning less passive. Professor Kevin Werbach’s lectures were efficient, recalling basic concepts and examples whenever necessary, covering many areas I had never taken into consideration while using gamification.
