Now that I am back from vacation (was off to Spain, but spent a little time in Istanbul on the way to and from), it's time to catch up a bit on EDDE 806. On the day that I was flying out to begin my vacation Alec Couros was presenting....D'oh! I missed the opportunity to be live in that 806. Not only was Alec on, but there was also a fellow EDDE student who is also Greek. It would

Εύρηκα! (eureka)There is nothing like a deadline to get you going - that's all I have to say! A while back, like last January or something, a colleague asked me if I would be interested in presenting at an IALLT webinar on a topic of my choosing - it just had to do with technology and education. I generally don't have a problem with coming up with topic to talk about, but this particular

What does that spell? elp-ss-ss ;-) OK...well that sounded more funny in my head...Anyway! Week 5 of NRC01PL (last week! All caught up! yay!) was about Learning Performance Support Systems. My first introduction to LPSS (a brief one at that) was in an instructional design course almost 10 years ago (if my memory works). The funny thing is that we did talk about LPSS (without using
PLE, the Learner, Open Learning, and...Academia

Moving right along with #NRC01PL - this is a (hopefully) short post on Personal Learning Environments, which was the topic of week 4 of NRC01PL. Maybe this week I can actually catch up to this week's discussion (although twitter has been surprisingly quiet in this cMOOC). In any case, I love discussing PLEs because in order to meaningfully discuss PLEs we need to discuss the context in
Can students opt out if you teach in Open Learning?

Siemens, 2014It seems like Connected Courses is the cMOOC that keeps on adding while we are in the process of conducting the course. I think, based on my own personal experience, that this (the addition of "features" as the course is in progress) is a hallmark of cMOOCs ;-).Anyway, Discussion forums have been added to Connected Courses, and a discussion cropped up on whether students can

The cone of silence ;-)In most cMOOCs I attempt to go back and respond to fellow participant's posts after something has provoked some thoughts. If I am less busy, I tend to blog more, if I am more busy, I tend to leave more comments. I guess this semester I am sort of in-between ;-)In any case, from week 1 of the #rhizo14 MOOC here are some things that have piqued my interest:From Jenny
SPOCs are illogical

Angry Spock (Star Trek reboot)OK, OK... the title was easy pickings but this article is quite serious. I've chosen to ignore, for the most part, the whole idiocy of the term SPOC (small private online course). SPOCs are really just "regular" online courses, as I've written in my one other post about SPOCs. It bothers me that there is so much revisionist history around the topic of "traditional"
Week 7 - Evaluation (OLDSMOOC)

It's week 7 in OLDSMOOC, and as we are windowing down we are tackling the topic of Evaluation. I will be switching tracks again, from the Blended Mobile Learning course (that I've been working on for a while), and going back to the idea of offering the course as a cMOOC. Going through OLDSMOOC I've gotten some good ideas about how to implement my own cMOOC. I've been thinking a lot about the
