Multi-faceted support for MOOC in programming

JournalSIGITE’12 ACM
Pages 1-6

ABSTRACT
Many massive open online courses (MOOC) have been tremendously popular, causing a stir in academic institutions.
The most successful courses have reached tens of thousands of participants. In our MOOC on introductory programming, we aimed to improve distinctive challenges that concern most of the open online courses: allowing and requiring the participants to be more active in their online learning (“flipped-classroom”), demanding them to go deeper than typical CS1 course, and added incentives for participant retention by treating the course as a formal entrance exam to CS/IT degree. Our Extreme Apprenticeship (XA) method for programming education appeared to be successful in an online environment as well.
