Project Category Innovation
Abstract English-MOOC is an online course design by using the theory of VARK (Visual, Aural, Write/Read, Kinesthetic) to cater the different needs of at-risk students. By utilizing the VARK theory, the module is designed to cater the different learning preferences of at-risk learners. This is an online course developed for massive open online courses (MOOCs) specifically for at-risk learners and designed for UiTM as an OpenLearning platform. The novelty of this product lies in the designing features of the MOOC by following the intrinsically motivating instruction defines by Malone that provides learners with three main features: challenge, curiosity, and fantasy. The course content is designed by using student-centred, active and social learning pedagogical principles including active activities for assessments, curating content for community engagement, and updated course content. There are 6 main engaged modules with rich media content and constructing activities using OpenLearning Widgets. There is no set time frame; students can do the activities when it suits them best.
