Role of External Evaluator

The external evaluator was commissioned to conduct the evaluation for the MoM course. Prior to its launch in September, the external evaluator spoke with course leads, Prof. TV Prabahakar and Dr. V. Balaji about the course to gather background information. A short article appeared in University World News to detail the course and to depict its novel approach to MOOCs (Perris, 2014a).

The external evaluator did not participate in the design or delivery of the MoM course.

The role of the external evaluator was to provide an assessment of the MOOC on MOOCs course. The external evaluator’s primary purpose was to provide staff at the Commonwealth of Learning and the Indian Institute of Technology, Kanpur with critique and recommendations on design and implementation of the course.
