Top Free Classes's curator insight, February 26, 2013 4:43 AM

Why I think (OPEN) courses should be about content creation

Why I think (OPEN) courses should be about content creation | Designing MOOCs | Scoop.it

There are many good reasons for creating content when we are learning. It provides an excellent method of personal curation of ideas, of being able to keep track of your work. It allows for others (beyond an educator) to be able to see and respond to your work. For some it provides encouragement to work a little harder, to polish a little more. It could also provide an excellent opportunity to explore other skills around publishing in numerous formats. These are all quite nice… but not what I’m on about at all.
