ABSTRACT
This paper shares the experience of offering the community-oriented MOOC called “COER13.” The focus is on how the convenors perceived the collaborative endeavor of planning and implementing this cMOOC, and on the lessons learnt in the process. COER13, the “Online Course on Open Educational Resources (OER)”, aimed at increasing awareness of open educational resources. It was offered in Spring/Summer 2013 in a joint venture by eight e-learning experts from Austria and Germany with affiliations to five different institutions.
The course was designed to enable participants to become more knowledgeable about OER and finally to generate a small OER-piece. It attracted over 1000 registered participants and instigated lively discussions over various social media communication channels. In this paper, the experience is described and discussed on the basis of interviews with five of the eight convenors, led and analyzed by an external expert. The final recommendations may benefit future convenors of (c)MOOCs.
