The ideals and Reality of Participating in a MOOC
This - and the paper below - are part of a research project undertaken by Sui Fai John Mak, Roy Williams, and Jenny Mackness, based on CCK08. Unfortunately, I haven't had time to read both papers...but the flight home should permit plenty of time :). , , October 16, 2009 [Link] [Tags: none] [Comment]

Podcast for presentations at the PLEs & PLNs symposium
Nice thing about openness: people can do with content/conversations as they see necessary. Don't like what we've done with the course? No problem, change it. Don't like the formats we post? No problem, change it. That's exactly what David Jones has done here in describing how he grabs audio files from PLE/N conference. The elluminate format is a bit limiting, so the audio files that Stephen has posted are useful... David Jones, , October 16, 2009 [Link] [Tags: none] [Comment]
