The Motives and Challenges of developing and delivering MOOCs courses


Este trabajo describe la experiencia de desarrollar un MOOC en la Universidad Nacional de An Najah y cómo ha sido transferido a un SPOC desde la perspectiva del equipo de desarrolladores. Para comprender su contenido, se habían analizado las respuestas y la participación de los estudiantes. Los datos reunidos describían la motivación para desarrollar el MOOC y luego utilizarlo como un SPOC, además de presentar los desafíos que enfrenta su desarrollo e implementación. El desarrollo del MOOC “Genética y Sociedad” en la Universidad Nacional de An Najah pasó por diferentes etapas que comenzaron con la oferta del curso a los estudiantes cara a cara y luego el desarrollo del curso en línea y su preparación como un MOOC, para finalmente utilizarlo como un SPOC para la universidad de los estudiantes. Los resultados mostraron los principales motivos para desarrollar el MOOC como un medio adecuado para aumentar el contenido en línea en lengua árabe de ciencia. El principal desafío al que se enfrentaron los diseñadores del curso fue la falta de apoyo técnico. El documento recomienda desarrollar más MOOC en diferentes idiomas en el campo de la Medicina.
