How to MOOC? – A pedagogical guideline for practitioners

How to MOOC? – A pedagogical guideline for practitioners | Education | Scoop.it

Massive Open Online Courses, shortly MOOCs, are a trending phenomenon in online education. Neither distance education nor online courses are new, but especially in the field of technology enhanced learning, MOOCs have been gathering enormous attention by the public. Thus, following the main idea of bringing education to a broad range of people, two universities in Graz developed an xMOOC platform for the German speaking area, mostly addressing people in Austria. Before the first courses started the authors reflected on how such a MOOC should be carried out and which key factors (didactical, technical and administrative) have to be considered.
This research study strongly concentrates on developing a checklist for practitioners who would like to do an xMOOC in the future by examining different xMOOCs and reflecting first experiences gathered through daily work on MOOCs.
It can be concluded that doing a Massive Open Online Course is much more challenging as maybe expected at first sight. Nevertheless the proposed checklist will help to overcome first barriers and provide solid steps towards one’s first online course.

Nine maps that show how climate change is already affecting the US

Nine maps that show how climate change is already affecting the US | Education | Scoop.it

Climate change isn't just a problem for future generations — it's already affecting broad swaths of the United States.

That's the upshot of the National Climate Assessment, a massive new US government report detailing the current and future impacts of global warming around the country. The report is particularly useful in detailing how specific regions and sectors will be affected — and outlining some possible ways we could adapt.

There's a lot of information in the report, but find nine highlights at the link.

A friend of mine posted this on Facebook. I got an 11/14--not too shabby. Localization and translation are a big deal in content strategy and technical writing, and even Ray Gallon has recommended that technical communicators should have at least 2 other languages other than their native language in their skill sets. Read this article, and take the quiz!
