  • Massive Open Online Courses

    Internationally, a number of emerging technologies and associated developments are becoming available that could have far‐reaching effects on the delivery of tertiary education. One of these developments is Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs).

    The opportunities MOOCs present include the ability for institutions to extend their brand and reach to large international audiences, experiment with innovative pedagogical approaches, an ability to offer niche provision at scale, and a potential reduction of costs. Its challenges and risks include that they are not widely recognised as formal qualifications, the absence of an established business model, and their pedagogical approaches.

    We have developed this paper as the start of a conversation between and among government agencies, institutions, employers and learners on the appropriate policy settings and ways to support the introduction of these emerging technologies in the delivery of tertiary education.

    This paper also supports the 2014 Innovations in Tertiary Education Delivery Summit, being held in Auckland on 5 and 6 June 2014, which looks at the future of tertiary education and the role of technology in it.

  • Evaluation of the e-learning collaborative development fund

    This was prepared by CORE Education Ltd. for the TEC. The e-Learning Collaborative Development Fund (eCDF) (established by Cabinet mandate in 2003 until 2007) had the specific purpose of building the e-Learning capability of the tertiary education system through a series of contestably funded collaborative projects. This collaboration was intended to achieve ‘economies of scale’ around e-Learning investments and provide "demonstrable benefits" to the collaborating partners and, potentially, to the sector as a whole.
