Connectivism in Practice — How to Organize a MOOC | peeragogy.org

Connectivism in Practice — How to Organize a MOOC | peeragogy.org | Temporary holding topic | Scoop.it

"Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) are online learning events that can take place synchronously and asynchronously for months. Participants assemble to hear, see, and participate in backchannel communication during live lectures. They read the same texts at the same time, according to a calendar. Learning takes place through self-organized networks of participants, and is almost completely decentralized: individuals and groups create blogs or wikis around their own interpretations of the texts and lectures, and comment on each other’s work; each individual and group publicises their RSS feed, which are automatically aggregated by a special (freely available) tool, gRSShopper. Every day, an email goes out to all participants, aggregating activity streams from all the blogs and wikis that engage that week’s material. MOOCs are a practical application of a learning theory known as “connectivism” that situates learning in the networks of connections made between individuals and between texts."

 

Comment: This is an excellent description of how a cMOOC works, you know, the connectivist kind that tends to be forgotten in all the brouha about about xMOOCs. But the resource doesn't stop here, it also gives rather good guidelines for those who want to dip their feet into setting up a cMOOC themselves (peter sloep, @pbsloep)

Why Facebook Is Not the Cure For Bad Comments

Why Facebook Is Not the Cure For Bad Comments | Temporary holding topic | Scoop.it

Facebook logins are not a cure for bad comments, real names or no real names. The only cure is something that takes a lot more effort than implementing a plugin, and that is being active in those comments.
