MOOCS month!

January will be a busy month as I commence two MOOCS:

OLDS MOOC  Learning Design for a 21st Century Curriculum is a project based course

  • Running from Jan 10th – 13th March, for 9 weeks with a workload of 3-10 hours
  • Described on the website as “a semi-structured, highly interactive, constructive and collaborative learning experience. This means that we set the scene – but you determine the plot”
  • The plan is to redevelop ULT throughout the 9 week project

Coursera Fundamentals of Online Education- Planning & Application MOOC:  a real-world application of theory and practice

  • Commencing Jan 28th, for 6 weeks with a workload of 5-7 hours
  • An emphasis on planning and development of an online course
  • Website explains that I will investigate ” online learning pedagogy, online course design, privacy and copyright issues, online assessments, managing an online class, web tools and Learning Management Systems.”
  • I will apply this learning to the development of the ULT online learning environment

Exciting stuff, just loads of work in front of me!
