Reflection of the creativity MOOC of Tina Seelig #xcc13

My footprint of the creativity MOOC 2013
My learning experience was great in this MOOC. I appreciated the open concept, the great learning platform of NovoEd which supported interaction, the transparency – every activity was open, I could look at all activities, read all discussions also the group discussions of other groups, I could browse through the assignments, could admire the great results of the other learners.
Therefore my footprint is an open one. I was challenged in this MOOC, there were so many ways to learn and discuss (mp = multi path in the scary zone). There were many many network activities (FIN), it was a very multimodal experience (XM).
Nearly all factors are in the zone of emergent learning – between 11 and 27. From my point of view there were no purely prescribed factors (<= 10), and we could also negotiate our outcomes a little bit (NegO).
I would never have assumed that a xMOOC could be that open – shame on me!
