Just enrolled in a MOOC at Open Suny called Locating, Creating, Licensing and Utilizing OERs (OER-101). How could I resist after seeing the trailer below?
I have enrolled in one other MOOC via Udemy where my nephew Archie Abrams is Director of Growth (love that title).
Next week I am supposed to do a brief presentation on MOOCs for the faculty senate and one of the most interesting commentaries on MOOCs is (not surprisingly) from Clay Shirky in his blogpost, Napster, Udacity and the Academy where he talks about MOOCs pushing us to consider a new story about education, a new ”sense of the possible” if education becomes “unbundled.”
In all of my ePortfolio work I talk about using the blog as an engine for collecting evidence and tagging that evidence so that during the selection process it is easy to filter. But I never follow my own advice. So as of today (1/15/13) I am going to begin dumping things in here and see if I can train myself to get in the habit of posting something at least once a week.
