Abstract

The purpose of this qualitative case study was to analyze the collaborative design process of two Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) for professional development of K-16 teachers. This paper describes the “design discourses” that occurred when course instructors and students collaboratively designed and developed these MOOCs using an educational design research model and provides insights into challenges they faced as well as their attempts to solve them. Qualitative data were analyzed in this single instrumental case study. The researchers used archival information from online student journal entries in which the students reflected about class activities, online discussion forums on course topics, and discussions about articles related to MOOCs and interactive learning research. Finally, students participated in focus groups in which they discussed the challenges they faced in designing the MOOCs and the significant things they learned. The framework used to develop the themes and implications for practice are discussed.
