Abstract

The paper describes an approach to the development of interactive practical exercises of the MOOCs on the basis of the standard design forms and technologies and the results of its application in the MOOC “Methods and algorithms of graph theory”, first run of which took place in 2015 on a National Platform of Open Education of the Russian Federation. The features and examples of standard design forms of applied practical exercises are given. The results of the application of the course, which confirms the efficiency of the proposed approach, are provided. Analysis of records of assignments in this course points to a tendency of reduction of time spent on exercises throughout the course. It was found that the reduction of time spent on exercise is significantly affected by situational awareness training that provided by the using of standard technologies and design forms to develop interactive practical exercises.
