On Varieties of MOOCs and Varieties of Implications for Learning

|

Submitted by syntaxfactory on January 31, 2015 - 6:44pm


"While xMOOCs “extend” the traditional, lecture-based classroom into virtual environments, cMOOCs have been quietly revolutionizing what we can do as learners and as educators. (If you’ve never done so, take a peek at ds106 for a really cool example.) I’m currently participating in the second networked learning opportunity coming out of Northwestern University’s Masters in Learning and Organizational Change program.

A&A Issue on the works of Jim Aune out at last... TOC and Editor's Intro attached.

We cannot post articles here, but I hope you will use your library (or your library's interlibrary loan service) to secure what you may want to read.

It's a nice mix of communication & writing scholars, senior and junior scholars, meditative reflections and highly analytic arguments.

Proud to work on it with my friend David.
