The more I read chapter in Macro-Level Learning through Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs): Strategies and Predictions for the Future, the more I am starting to feel like Anton Ego from the animated movie Ratatouille ;-) It's not that I am aiming to write harsh reviews of the stuff I read, but I kind of feel like the anticipation I have for reading some published things about MOOCs just
Internationalizing social work via MOOCs
First week of the new semester! Last semester, with everything going on I decided to put off reviewing a book I told people I'd review, but for this semester I think I'll just forget ahead and get this done. So, back for another review of a chapter in the book titled Macro-Level Learning through Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs): Strategies and Predictions for the Future (an

Back for another review of a chapter in the book titled Macro-Level Learning through Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs): Strategies and Predictions for the Future (an IGI global title). This time I am reviewing (a little) chapter 3 and jumping off from there. The chapter title is "Professional Learning through MOOCs?: A Trans-Disciplinary Framework for Building Knowledge, Inquiry,

Happy Labor Day everyone!The other day I was going through my two Learning Solutions Magazine articles to see if there were any comments (Part 1 and Part 2 here) that I might be able to address. I think it's great when people engage with the reading material on the web in a constructive way, it helps everyone expand their knowledge a little. That said, the comments weren't that many, and they
Wow, our first citation!
A weird thing happened the other day. I was on my Google+ profile, looking to get the URL for my Google Reader Shared Items. By mistake I tapped on the URL for my google scholar profile and I noticed that one of my articles had a citation. A citation? A citation! For one of my co-authored articles? It seemed so! But who would cite us?Don't get me wrong, I believe that the quality of the work
mLearn 2011 conference proceedings now available!
I was reading Micheal's blog the other night and I realized that the Conference Proceedings for mLearn 2011 are now up! You can download them from the Conference website, or you can read them on Scribd (see bellow)In other news, it seems like the MobiMOOC research team is big in China :-) We were contacted yesterday by PhD students (under the direction of their advisor) to see if we would consent
Academic writing - collaborator or lone wolf?
One of the things I've been thinking about recently is the topic of research, writing, and publishing. If you want to be in academia research and publishing is a must while if you want to be in the private sector it may not be as important (I am guessing it's not - but if you are of differing opinion leave a comment!) In thinking of research and publishing one of the questions that comes to mind is
end of mobiMOOC, and other writing
MobiMOOC ended last week, but the list is still going, much to my surprise! Granted it's not as active as it was before when it was in session, but a bunch of us interested people do continue to contribute - as a matter of fact we're planning on co-authoring a collaborative paper on the whole thing! I don't really know what the progress of that will be since I am not the team leader on it, but

I was looking at the website of the journal (Human Architecture) in which I published an article last summer and I saw that it's out! The journal hasn't hit SocIndex or EBSCO yet, but I guess it's official :-)Check it out either at okcir.com (link above), or the copy I've placed on my Scribd account
A little light reading on Folksonomies
I came across this article on First Monday on Folksonomies a while back but I never really got around to reading it until now.It is an interesting article and if you have some time go and read it. It gives the uninitiated a brief look at organization of information in the past, and how folksonomies differ from what has come before them.It seems to me that the criticism of folksonomies are a little
