The MOOC will focus on connecting online for collaborative learning and teaching through Second Life. The live presentations will include the speakers’ reflective process on teaching and learning in fully online and blended learning formats.
Second Life MOOC will also include courses for beginners and advanced Second Life participants. The courses will be asynchronous (Moodle) and synchronous (WizIQ & Second Life) with recordings on WizIQ, Google Drive, YouTube, and Vimeo.
There will be three learning areas: WizIQ course area, Second Life, and Moodle for Teachers (M4T) Moodle website. The live online sessions and recordings, tutorials (courseware) and ongoing discussions (coursefeed) will be available in the WizIQ course area.
Unlike the traditional MOOCs that stress content and course delivery, Second Life MOOC will focus on active learning, reflection, sharing, and collaboration. The aim of the course is for the participants to learn through meaningful connections and social interactions. Participants who wish to receive a certificate of participation will be required to document their learning experiences by keeping a blog, wiki, website, or any other artifact that will include a description and reflection of the live sessions and/or recordings.
