學習計劃方便中學生接觸世界知名大學的 MOOCs。通過計劃,學生可以根據自己的興趣獲得國際化學習經驗,培養對國際的理解能力。在工作坊中,我們將討論計劃是如何推行並影響學生和學校。
在 2020 年暑假,有一所學校的 95 名中三學生完成了 210 個MOOCs,包括 :
1. 完成外語學習MOOCs。學生們自主修讀了昆士蘭大學、延世大學和早稻田大學的課程,學習英語(IELTS)、韓語和日語。
2. 完成知名大學 (如哈佛大學、清華大學) 的MOOCs。香港中學難以提供近似課程。
3. 完成音樂學院、非營利組織和科技公司的 MOOCs。這些經歷對學生來說非常珍貴

Workshop Objective

From the workshop:

1. Students can gain global learning experiences through MOOC learning.

2. Students with average language proficiency could complete MOOC in areas that they are fond of.

3. Students learn to identify relevant MOOC for him/herself.

Workshop Description

Nowadays, people have to thrive in a fast-paced world full of volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity and have to respond to emerging and development needs of the community. Therefore, global citizens with generic skills (e.g. critical thinking, communications, creativity) and attitudes (e.g. global citizenship, lifelong learning, self-directed learning) are in huge demand today. There are need to help students to develop these skills and attitudes in an experiential manner. Although extracurricular activities and service learning in the K12 curriculum can facilitate students learning of these skills, we believe there are limited opportunities in local secondary schools in Hong Kong for students to enrich further. 


The programme allows students to join the MOOCs offered by the world's top universities. In the 2020 summer semester, 95 out of 101 secondary school Form 3 students in a school have completed 210 MOOCs:

  1. Students completed MOOCs that could develop their foreign language skills. For example, they enrolled MOOCs from the University of Queensland (Australia), Yonsei University (South Korea) and Waseda University (Japan) to learn English (IELTS), Korean and Japanese, respectively. Students can enjoy low-cost language learning courses through MOOC.

  2. Students took MOOCs from global (e.g., Harvard University) and regional (e.g., Tsinghua University) well-renowned universities on STEM or humanities topics, which are difficult to be provided in schools.S

  3. Students also took MOOCs from musical schools (e.g., Berklee College of Music), non-profit organizations (e.g., SmithsonianX) and companies (e.g., IBM, Microsoft). These courses offer students a chance to know more about global issues on a particular topic. These experiences are rare and valuable to students.

T​he workshop will cover

1. Introduction to MOOC 

2. Hands-On MOOC Experience - Participants will be given time to explore 3600 MOOCs offered by Coursera under the supervision of the instructor.
