EDUlib: a MOOC Platform Using SAKAI

A session at Open Apereo 2013 Conference (Jasig & Sakai)

Wednesday 5th June, 2013

4:45pm to 5:30pm (PST)

In November 2012, HEC Montreal successfully launched a MOOC using Sakai CLE 2.8. The platform called EDUlib can be accessed at edulib.hec.ca. The course, Introduction to marketing, was taught in French and attracted over 4000 participants of whom 458 completed the 6-week course successfully. The material was made available through web pages stored in Resources and the following tools were used extensively during the course: Announcements, Tests & Quizzes, Forums, Profile 2, Gradebook 2. Overall, the Sakai platform performed quite well. As a result, we will be continuing our MOOC experience. A second course, Understanding financial statements, is scheduled to start in March with over 5 000 participants and two more courses are plannned for the near future.

After reviewing briefly the results and the main features of the first two EDUlib courses, the presentation will focus on the pros and cons of Sakai as a MOOC platform and conclude with a list of features that should be incorporated in Sakai in order to deliver MOOCs sucessfully.
