    Thank-you for sharing this information 🙂 I’m interested in the ways that MOOCs are assessed – could you give further details about what the homeworks/quizzes/assignments involved? Were they auto-graded (such as multiple choice quizzes) or did the course include peer graded assessments? Thanks!

      We used a combination of in video quizzes, non-scoring quizzes, scoring exams (with a range of options), programming assignments and a challenge that had community review – but it did not this time use the peer-grading mechanism as we had no experience of that. So essentially we used almost all of the Coursera platform assessment features except for peer grading this time.

    A report on “The pedagogy of the Massive Open Online Course: the UK view” has been prepared by Siân Bayne and Jen Ross of the University of Edinburgh School of Education for the UK Higher Education Academy (HEA) and published as a PDF document on 6th March 2014.

    This includes some commentary on the AI Planning MOOC course design and statistics from the 2013 session.
