Week 2: Assignment 4 Create learning objectives


Learners in a MOOC want know what they will learn in the MOOC. The learning objectives in combination with the title of your MOOC will be crucial to motivate learners to join your MOOC. The learning objective describes what a learner is expected to learn from the assigment. It gives the learner an idea how and with what respect he or she will profit from learning.

The Arizona University offers a nice description about learning objectives. If you klick on the link it connects you to an “objective builder” and here I recommend that you watch the tutorial. Slide 2-6 gives a nice overview about learning obectives.

These were the learning objectives of week 1 in the MOOC Camp:

  • get familiar with the concept of this MOOC
  • socialize with the other learners in the MOOC
  • reflect about your competences and network


Define learning objectives for your MOOC


Post the information as a comment to this page – or put the text somewhere in the web and post a link to this web page (where you already posted assignment 3 and continue now with assignment 4) 

  • Ask yourself what your future learnes should learn in your MOOC week or your MOOC (don’t waste time to think about the MOOC itself, don’t asl yourself if your idea about a MOOC, or a MOOC week works – but take your idea of your MOOC and start!)
  • Define two or three objectives for your MOOC (week). They don’t have to be perfect, because you will get feedback 🙂


Read the assignment carefully and reflect upon your understanding of the task and how you would carry it out. Maybe you want to discuss this aspect already with the other learners in the MOOC Camp, before you start to work on the learning objectives.

Read the objectives of the other learners and share your thoughts in a comment to your colleagues!
