Core elements of an Open Course

Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) are more than filmed lectures or static e-learning resources. They make use of online video in new ways and combine it with interactive elements as well as a social layer that encourages peer-to-peer learning.

Video

Online video instruction is the core of open course teaching. These videos break down the content of an hour-long lecture into individual concepts that can be explained in short videos that are just a few minutes long.

Feedback

Answering a few multiple-choice questions allows students to check for themselves whether they grasped the key concepts. Such interactive elements keep students engaged, ensure that they stay on track from week to week and provide immediate feedback to the instructor.

P2P

Students can post, browse and respond to other students’ questions in the context of a student forum. They can upvote questions and answers that they found particularly helpful so that the best content bubbles to the top.

Nonprofits can take advantage of the prevelance of social media to connect with stakeholders. No question that social media is influential, powerful and here to stay!

You see why if you don't have an online presence then you are part of a dying breed...

Content Curation - Best Practices

 

Content curation has become a hot topic in 2012.

 

Corrine Weisgerber, an associate professor at St. Edwards University, has an excellent presentation on content curation.

 

She differentiates content curation from content aggregation--content aggregation can be automated but content curation requires the human touch for finding, evaluating and contextualizing information.

I supposed twitter can be used or any tool can be used for anything,but some tools are made with certain intended affordance by the creator that would make the tool less effective for certain functions. curation in a way is capturing things void of time (i probably drawing too much from museum), while twitter is fast pace timeline of interactive (or one way) discourse.... they seems to be inherently different.

i'm just automatically sceptical when 'one tool can be use for all' theme appear. but it is an interesting suggestion.

Many people learn one tool and then move on to others. I like to analyze each and use the best features of that particular 2.0 project. I use twitter as a push tool to share info for the most part.
