Editors
Apostolos Koutropoulos (University of Massachusetts Boston).


Call for Chapters & Illustrators 
Proposals Submission Deadline: November 15th, 2013
Full Chapters Due: April 15, 2014
Revision Submission Date: August 1st, 2014


Introduction 
This book will explore the various aspects of MOOCs (cMOOCs and xMOOCs). It will serve as a primer into the MOOC field for professionals in the field of education, including professors, instructional designers, educational technologists, project managers, and administrators. The idea for this book came in 2011 after I had completed my first few cMOOCs, and seeing the nascent state of the field, I wanted to facilitate an open access book on the topic.  The original proposal, which got some traction but I never pursued, can be seen here: http://bit.ly/147P574


Objective of the Book
This book will present chapters that revolve around the issues associated with the MOOCs in Higher Education, K-12, Corporate Learning, and other formal and informal learning environments.  Issues in this book can fall under the areas of Pedagogy, Design & Development, Institutional Policies, Alternative Credentialing, Teaching and learning and so on. The book aims to present chapters that are research based.  All chapters will be peer reviewed prior to acceptance to publication.


Target Audience
The anticipated audience includes researchers,  teachers, instructors, professors and senior managers in Higher Education, policy makers, open learning designers, instructional designers, open learning Universities, professional accrediting associations, and government qualification recognition bodies. 


Recommended topics include, but are not limited to, the following:
The following list is taken, as recommendation, from the initial Great Big MOOC Book Call. It should be noted that the term "MOOC" here is short hand for both cMOOC and xMOOC. The book aims to strike a balance between the two varieties of MOOCs. Chapters can include original research writing, researched position papers, articles describing the design and development of past MOOC, and lessons learned.  All chapters will be peer reviewed.

  • The History of MOOCs
  • Pedagogical Foundations of MOOCs
  • Theory and Practice of Connectivism
  • Learning Theories and MOOCs
  • MOOC Planning  and development
  • Learns Learning from MOOCs
  • Learner profiles in MOOCs
  • Learner Motivation in MOOCs
  • Learner Engagement in MOOCs
  • OCW, OER, OLI and MOOCs
  • Learner Assessment in MOOCs
  • Frameworks for MOOC Evaluation

  • How to design a MOOC
  • MOOCs and the Language Barrier
  • MOOCs and Designing for Learner Success
  • The realization of Openness in MOOCs
  • Digital Badges and alternative credentialing in MOOCs

Submission Procedure 
Chapter contributors are invited to submit on or before November 15, 2013, a 2-3 page manuscript proposal clearly describing and explaining the topic of the proposed chapter. The proposal should include the chapter summary, table of contents, and authors’ contact information. Authors of accepted proposals will be notified by December 30, 2013 about the status of their proposals and sent chapter organizational guidelines. Full chapters are expected to be submitted by April 15, 2014. All submitted chapters will be reviewed on a blind review basis. Contributors may also be requested to serve as reviewers for this project.

Publisher
This book is scheduled to be an Open Access, self-published book. Copies of the book will be hosted for free on scribdscholarworks (UMass Boston), and academia.edu. Contributing Authors and Illustrators are also invited to host the book on sites of their preference.  I am also planning on working with my University to sponsor the project so we can have University backing, we can get an ISBN and other resources to help expedite the publishing.

The Anticipated release of this book is December 2014 (sooner if I can ;-) )
