Tales from a MOOC, Part 1 | College Ready Writing @insidehighered | MOOCS | Scoop.it

"I’m currently taking a MOOC through Canvas on Blended Learning. I’ve been sitting on this particular piece for a while about my previous experience taking MOOCs. There are probably at least two or three more posts, but for this first one, let me reflect on the issue of course design. It’s fully online and not blended, but I think it reflects some thinking on designing the learner experience."

6 Sources of Data – and Inspiration – for Your Visual Content | MOOCS | Scoop.it

Six in ten of us are visual learners: people who learn best when information is delivered through the eyes; by looking at images or videos, or reading. That’s just one of the reasons why visual content is so important in today’s content marketing world.
