A MOODLE BASED MOOC LEARNING ENVIRONMENT IN MAKING COLLEGE EDUCATION GREENER

While e-learning and MOOC enrollments in higher education show significant growth worldwide, in Hungary the mostly EU financed e-learning trials are just still isolated experiments that spread slowly. The rising living cost and the shrinking budgets cause educational institutions to rethink the method that traditional education is delivered. More and more attention is focused on how students’ financial contribution can be reduced. This study introduces an e-learning (MOOC) application that has the potential to reduce students’ costs compared to the traditional was of teaching while producing the same educational result by offering online material that can be acquired by autodidact way. The experiment is utilized in a one-semester long program in teaching Statistics offered by Karoly Robert College (KRF) for non-full time students. The KRF’s e-learning program consists of paradigms: MOOC-like courses, course redesigns (series of videos, series of interactive lessons, self-evaluating tests, cross-evaluated tests, exercises, exercises with detailed solution).
