It’s not just about the negatives but the positive impact that MOOCs can have on education. I found the idea of promoting a learner-centred model interesting. Through the use of a flipped classroom I feel that an online course could enable in-depth discussions with my pupils, reinforce their physical performance and increase practical time within the classroom. However, do they show the ability to work independently and demonstrate self-directed learning and autonomy. Guidance would be compulsory alongside time-management, discipline and goal setting to ensure internal assessment outcomes are met.
