Lessons from an early MOOC

"In September 2008, Michele Martin, Tony Karrer and I hosted a 6-week open professional development program on social media. We did this for the eLearning Guildas a run-up to the annual DevLearn conference. It was an asynchronous (no time-scheduled activities) program. We developed all activities for three levels of participation:Spectator; Joiner; and Creator, with different requirements for each. The majority fell into the first category, but the Creators were able to take on the role of facilitating, which became important as we grew."

Results of qualitative and quantitative analyses were presented which seemed to suggest that blogs had much in its favour of Blog conversations. However, the implications for teaching is for varying format discussion within a course while understanding of the importance of learning communities affirms a sense of community in the students. Students are enaged purposeful reflection. This article encourages us  to examine our own online teaching practices to  help create effective pedagogy to enhance student learning.
