STUDENTS' project preferences for A MOOC aggregator
The article is devoted to the study of evaluation in the project preferences of University students of IT specialties to MOOC aggregators when organizing and providing search results for relevant training courses. The main purpose of this work is to describe the MOOC market, strategies of aggregators’ behavior in the national online education market. Today, their role has increased due to the mass transfer of distance learning based on the spread of COVID-19. The understanding of free niches in the MOOC market and possible directions of activity of Russian providers in the educational space are emphasized. To implement MOOCs in the educational process of universities, we need to answer the following questions: how effective is it to use MOOCs to completely or partially replace full-time courses, and will this practice lead to a decrease in students’ educational results? what skills do students need to successfully complete the MOOC? This paper presents the results of an online survey of 1st and 3rd year students of Moscow State University of Food Production. Based on the survey, a number of advantages and disadvantages of popular aggregators at the University were identified, which allows us to start developing a cumulative axiological system of requirements for modeling the preferred MOOC aggregator in a distance learning situation.
