Open educational practices of MOOC designers: embodiment and epistemic locationAdam, T. - 2020 - Distance Education, 41(2), 171–185

Addressing Injustices through MOOCs: A study among peri-urban, marginalised, South African youth [Thesis, University of Cambridge]Adam, T. - 2020

In striving for justice-oriented online education models, this study analyses to what extent Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs),...

They are prompted to reflect on such topics, whether in agreement or with scepticism. Provoked by one interviewee’s comment that ‘you could decolonise and still have an enormous amount of injustice’, this paper investigates how South African MOOC designers conceptualise (in)justice, and how...
