Meet at Edcrunch

    This post is for those who are involved in serious education.

    On October 17-18, a surprisingly high-quality conference is held in Moscow at which key participants in the educational market will discuss the MOOC issue. The composition of the participants is really stellar. And if Dafna from Coursera is no longer surprised, then EDX Director Agarwal and Iversity founder Klepper (the project is German, and the development is managed entirely by Russian Dmitry Filatov, by the way) on the same site - this is much more interesting.

    Yakov Somov is calling for a conference.

    From Russia there is also an impressive list. Kolya Vyakhhi vyahhi , evangelist of bioinformatics (stepic), Taras Pustovoy tvp , who presented us with the MIPT content, Evgenia Kulik, who organized the launch of the HSE courses, Sasha PershinAlexPershin - html academy (of the rarest quality interactive content), expected by Igor Asonov iasonov FABLAB, etc.

    In short, there are a lot of habravchants and some other people.

    Natasha Chebotar and Vladimir Sinelnikov, my friends from edutainme (the best publication on online education in RuNet), have done tremendous work. It seems that they were able to gather almost everyone who "cares." And, importantly, universities are widely represented.

    Now that the hype about massive open online courses (MOOCs) is gradually subsiding, everyone has finally begun to ask the right questions. Why run these courses? How to produce and publish them correctly? What data to collect and how to analyze it?

    Gradually, understanding comes that MOOC is not a panacea, but a very narrow tool. This is what I will talk about in my lecture on the example of the Lectorium experience.

    I invite everyone who cares about the topic to join.
    Pay attention for teachers and teachers there are free quotas, write to the organizers. Require tickets.
