Returning to the roots
Posted Oktober 12, 2011on:
As I cannot find content of week 5 (?? maybe I’m overworked…) I returned to my perception of the MOOC itself.
And discovered Stephen’s MOOC guide in Google Sites. It is interesting to read about the past MOOCs – one only lasted 6 weeks, another was run in Moodle (would be a much too closed environment for me), and there is a MOOC room in SL as well.
Furthermore I found his Keynote about „MOOC 2011: The Massive Open Online Course in Theory and in Practice“ September 6, 2011, delivered to IV Innovar para Transcendar Simposio de la COMINAIC, Guadalajara, Mexico. – The slides contain incredible beautiful pictures.
Nevertheless my participation could be higher (it’s wednesday evening and the first time that I enter the MOOC in week 5) – but it’s impossible at the start of the semester. On the other hand I’m preparing a new class for new adult learners and I’m using materials found in the MOOC 🙂
