Impressions from Participants
Participants talk about their experiences after completing the MOOC:
From MOOC to Master
Michaela and Valeriya are among our first students of the new Master's program who also participated in the MOOC. Here's what they have to say about the Open Online Course:
Why did you decide to take this course?
Valeriya: I took the course as part of my Master's application because I wanted to have an insight into the subject.
Michaela: It was already clear to me that I wanted to shift my master's towards innovation/entrepreneurship. When I found out about this course, I took the opportunity to look more deeply into the subject to make sure that this was really a viable option for me as a course of study.
For which target group do you think the MOOC adds the most value?
Michaela: The greatest added value is for people who have a strong drive for self-actualization and are willing to take the steps necessary to achieve it. Be it doing something positive within a company or building something new with their own company.
Valeriya: For people who want to make a difference in life, who are willing to take responsibility and who want to constantly learn and develop.
What does MOOC mean?
Like many of the digital innovations, the concept of MOOCs, Massive Open Online Courses, originated in the USA. In 2008, Stephen Downs & George Siemens launched the first MOOC at the University of Manitoba with 2,300 participants worldwide, followed by Stanford, which reached 160,000 students in 2011. Since then, the number of courses on offer has been increasing, and dedicated platform providers such as edX or coursera have been founded, on which universities offer their MOOCs on a wide variety of topics.
The question is - why do universities make elaborately produced online courses available to the entire world for free? Some say marketing, international reach & representation, others take the approach that knowledge and education should be freely accessible and open to everyone.
Deliberately, the M of (M)OOC is in brackets, because for Klaus Sailer, CEO of SCE & professor at HM, the focus is not on reaching masses of 150,000 people or more. "Our ambition is to create a high-quality, innovative and digital teaching format," confirms Klaus Kreulich, Vice President for Teaching at the Munich University of Applied Sciences. "We want to train learners to become entrepreneurial individuals who help shape the digital future," both agree. "I am now finally looking forward to testing the course with real users and seeing how it is received. "It was important to me to design a course that is fun, intuitive and conveys knowledge from different perspectives," says Franziska Mattner, who is responsible for the conception & implementation of the MOOC.
