Redeveloping a MOOC to Be More Culturally Relevant: A Design-Based Approach

Sun, April 7, 3:40 to 5:10pm, Metro Toronto Convention Centre, Floor: 600 Level, Room 605


In this paper, we describe how we collaboratively localized an English language MOOC—Coursera’s “Learning How to Learn” (LHTL)—to meet the needs of Chinese MOOCs learners. We introduce our use of multiple course development iterations with a design-based research approach to continuously improve the quality of the course offering. Presently, our localized (“landing”) LHTL has been offered in four major MOOC platforms in the Chinese-speaking regions with about six thousand students.
