On December 14, 2012, Sebastian Thrun, Cathy Davidson, Jesse Stommel, Sean Michael Morris, Petra Dierkes-Thrun, and a small group of educational thought leaders will gather in Palo Alto to discuss the future of MOOCs in online education. The approach of this one-day intensive summit brings Sean and Jesse back to the subject of MOOCs, and the imminent return of MOOC MOOC.

David Bramley's curator insight, December 11, 2012 3:45 PM

Don't let the reference to Games in the title put you off, this post is about course design through the lens of connectivism

 

e.g. "When designing a course with Connectivism in mind, an assumption is made that subject knowledge will change or evolve over time.  Therefore it is important to provide students with the ability to know where to seek answers beyond the confines of the class.  Learning should not end when the teacher quits talking. Plugging students into the flow of information is more important than the information itself."


True to form, the post includes lots of links to great resources to enable you to teach yourself...but will you find other's to share it with?

We’re witnessing the end of higher education as we know it. This transformation is being brought on by “MOOCs” — massive open online courses being offered for little or no cost.

 

Somewhat over-hyped I think!

Stanford MOOC Assignments and Disconnects

This blog post comes from Mark, who is engaged in a MOOC, and relates to a disconnection between assignments and the problems this can cause.

 

In my experience, disconnections between assignments are not limited to MOOCS and the suggestion that educators use a concise roadmap to link assignments and put them in context is one I find interesting.  What about you?
