Updates from Dr. Nellie Deutsch | Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) | Scoop.it

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

 

The annual Moodlemoot for 2012 (MMVC12) is over but you can access the conference by joining the free course I created on WiziQ for you to be able to access the content (PowerPoint, PDF, Video, Audio) and the recordings of the sessions.

 

You are also invited to get a free premium teacher account so you can teach online with WizIQ. I will be giving a course on how you can teach online using WizIQ. Here's the link for the course for MMVC12: http://www.wiziq.com/course/4365-moodlemoot-2012-mmvc12 and the course on how to use WizIQ for teaching: http://www.wiziq.com/course/4618-teaching-online

 

Finally, I would like to invite you to join the courses on IT4ALL: http://www.integrating-technology.org We are trying to keep them free but for now some of them cost $10 - $20 for the Moodle for Teacher (M4T) and other integrating technology courses for educators. The upcoming Moodle introductory course has just started and you are invited to join so you can teach with Moodle on your own or within your school: http://www.integrating-technology.org/course/view.php?id=409

 

You are also invited to help us raise money so we can keep the courses on IT4ALL free for everyone by sharing the following link with your colleagues and friends: http://www.indiegogo.com/free-online-courses

 

Looking forward to facilitating your learning.

 

Warm wishes,

 

Nellie Deutsch

The conversation with Michael Wesch was brilliant. I would like to thank the participants who came and kept the chatbox active and Michael for speaking so openly. It took me a few days of ongoing reflections to start blogging about it.

Michael Wesch: Conversation on WizIQ

Educational technology can go so far, but we can do even more by bringing ourselves into the equation. Here's a video recording of Michael Wesch and I in a conversation on WizIQ. This is a must watch because Michael went beyond teaching and learning. He focused on love and how we can enrich our lives by meditating on love before going to class: http://youtu.be/r-dzJr8bMgc

Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs): Why the Change? Online Class by Dr. Nellie Deutsch

Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs): Why the Change? Online Class by Dr. Nellie Deutsch | Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) | Scoop.it

Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) began with the idea of connecting for learning via personal learning environments (PLEs) using blogs, wikis, google groups, and Moodle. 
According to Wikipedia, the term MOOC is said to have started in 2008 by Dave Cormier and Bryan Alexander "in response to an open online course designed and lead by George Siemens and Stephen Downes" (wikipedia). 

However, MOOCs have changed from the idea of connecting with others for learning to the more traditional content delivery format as demonstrated by Khan's Academy, MIT's and Standford.

The presenter has participated in MOOCs since 2008. She will discuss the transition of the MOOC from having an active learning format to what they are today - content sharing and teaching to the masses.
