elearnspace › Google+ – fundamental misunderstanding of networks?

For some reason that I’m not fully clear on, I’m concerned that Google is more in the mode of gaming networks than in helping people connect to people that matter or are personally interesting. Is the intent to get early tech geek adopters to fall in love with G+ and feel invested because they have tremendous follower counts? If so, then there is some hope for G+. They just have to recommending by generic network/power law algorithms and start recommending by MY personal interest and existing network. If G+ isn’t recommending based on driving geek adoption, then I’m afraid Google doesn’t understand the distinction between networks as a mathematical entity and networks as a personal, lived, experience.

Ray Schroeder's post from July 8 presages discovery of whatever affordances there might be in Google+ for MOOC interaction. I suggest we join Jeff Lebow's Next Scheduled MOOCast: July 13 at 1400UTC, http://edumooc2011.blogspot.com/ . He has some ideas on the how we can use Google+ effectively, and mentioned some in this recorded event yesterday: http://learning2gether.posterous.com/vance-stevens-and-jeff-lebow-will-lead-a-disc

Dave Cormier worked with Neal Gillis to make his commoncraft style MOOC videos. This is Neal's blog on the experience: "As mentioned, I recently completed three videos about Massive Open Online Courses. The videos were part of a research project conducted by four very fine individuals, and, as I understand it, it’s been a success in the community." - yes it has! Thanks

Mary Rearick has been posting links to Facebook and this one hits on a post by Kelly Edmonds that comments on a report called Transforming American Education: Learning Powered by Technology (find the link to the 87 page pdf here). This short post gives some suggestions for researching the impact of the kind of learning being modeled in EduMOOC and similar efforts. A nice springboard for researchers here :-)

eduMOOC and when do we start to learn?

"It probably comes as no surprise that among the 2400 participants of the current massive open online course eduMOOC a sense of confusion has spread. Typical questions raised are “what are the learning objectives?", “what are MOOCs about?”, or “how do I master the abundant wealth of content?” In response help arrives from veteran MOOCers. This mostly comes in form of advice for un-learning: “forget normal course structures”, “forget catching up with all postings”, “set your own objectives”, etc.

Jose I. Icaza thinks that figure 1-16 in this paper "precisely models* ideal *learning in a MOOC: you have there selection of what to learn, gradually building mental models, self reflection, sharing, other people's learning and so on. Since the MOOC is very asynchronous and people participate at random times of various days, more delays would have to be inserted at several of the arrows."

In an EduMOOC googlegroup forum Karen Swan says she is "using the Community of Inquiry (CoI) survey to assess implementation issues. The CoI survey, which is based on what is perhaps the most used theory of online learning, collects student perceptions of learning processes in online courses -- namely, student perceptions of social, teaching, and cognitive presence." She then refers us to this link.
