Teachers and students can collaborate through social networks like Twitter, Facebook, Google, Instagram, LinkedIn, and Massive Open Online Courses. Technology and the Internet provide opportunities to collaborate for learning.

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.
Professional development webinars with Dr. Nellie Deutsch, an educator and experienced technology expert on how to teach with technology in face-to-face, blended, and fully online courses every Friday at 5 PM EST on WizIQ.
The goal of this session is to think beyond the Learning Management System (LMS) structure for course delivery, to include creating virtual spaces that support personal development and lifelong learning for both students and the educators who teach...
Moodle MOOC 2 on WizIQ will start on October 1, 2013. Join this class to learn more about the MOOC. Participants will learn about the course areas, the workload and tasks for the course, and about the certificates of participation.
