Vance Stevens's curator insight, January 18, 2014 5:02 AM

This article reports research on FSLT12 MOOC from Athabasca University which I could have used in the book chapter I appended to a report on SMALL here: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1GWVtAH2yfp5tL3bdMg58_M5Deq36Ot_jQ_w8rflsGuA/edit#heading=h.wwfgxw6e65fd

 

As it says in the abstract, "The research shows that small task-oriented MOOCs can effectively support professional development of open academic practice." I also like this quote "Learners new to MOOCs may find working across distributed platforms difficult and disorienting; experienced ‘MOOCers’ expect this (Waite et al., 2013)." The latter citation is 'in press'.

The next step is to install fonts such as, "OpenDyslexic" (http://opendyslexic.org/)  and customize the spacing for each reader (http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2012/06/120607105712.htm) on each e-reader!
