The actual title of this article is: "

George Siemens: ‘Students need to take ownership of their learning’

I focused on Siemens design of multiple pathways through a MOOC.  His description of the design as "oscillating between these two elements of the MOOC: structure and linear versus emergent and social." triggers some interest. 


Social engagement in any online class is a precious and memorable experience.

"A lot of what’s wrong with MOOCs stems from how they emulate traditional classrooms" - @gsiemens

Dual layered MOOC.  I do see the obvious benefits.

Mark Carty's insight:

I have been making a conscious effort over the last year to provide learning material which can be easily accessed on mobile devices. An awareness of universal design is crucial when supporting the online learner.

 

I have also been making an effort to aim for zero printing in my own TELTA studies. This is proving slightly more challenging than I anticipated, some forward planning is involved to ensure notes are available offline. I have been experimenting with highlighting and note-taking apps on Android, I find that a Google Drive, Adobe Reader, Evernote workflow works well.

Some perspectives that it's important to remember here; some learners need to use digital devices and there's an environment friendly consideration as well. I think the incorporation of mobile devices as part of classroom activities could be emphasised more though. Search engines and Google translate are mentioned but there are lots of other useful online applications such as polling software and many discipline specific online resources
