Auto Grouping and Peer Grading System in Massive Open Online Course (MOOC)
Chiou, Yi; Shih, Timothy K.
International Journal of Distance Education Technologies, v13 n3 p25-43 Jul-Sep 2015
E-learning is a progressive way of learning through online courses. Instructors pass information to learners via context and videos embedded in active webpages, so that learners intake knowledge of what they need. Now e-learning is not simply providing course materials, while the trend of Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) is recently applied widely, the concept of flipped classroom is well deployed everywhere. Courses are designed more practical, suitable, and problem-solving inclined. By this way, learners' learning effectiveness and learning motivation are triggered. In this research, the authors will develop an online learning platform and improve the existing methods of peer grouping and peer assessment, to promote the concept of MOOCs.
