We begin by introducing this week's guest, Zoraini Wati Abas, who will be talking about Mobile Learning at Open University Malaysia. As you can see in the newsletter today, he has shared an overview of his topic, his blog, and three articles. We also have a live event scheduled for Wednesday in our new conferencing environment.

All readings, video and other resources for this week are available on the Week 2 course page. You'll find the link to this page on the left hand side of most course pages. As new resources related to the topic are added through the week, they will be listed on this page. #week2 [Comment]

Live Meeting Facility

We have set up our online conferencing environment, an open source application called Big Blue Button, and integrated it into gRSShopper. This means that anyone who has a #change11 userid and who is logged in can go to the Live Meetings page and create their own meeting.

This is a greate opportunity to try out the conferencing environment before the scheduled session. When you go to the Live Meetings page you will see a list of meetings in progress. Enter any of them and test your audio and video. The rooms are still in the experimental stage, so we would appreciate your feedback. [Comment]

My virtual ears are already ringing...
Yukonsyl, eXplorations
I reviewed all the good advice provided by our newsletter, and posted by other MOOCrs and I got partway. But then my monitoring devices started to twang; my Diigo group posted some interesting stuff, the RSS feed pages in the blog started displaying some thought-provoking statements, my Google search and Youtube search started yielding some videos I put aside to watch when I had time. I'm already finding that I'm getting scattered.Hopefully today I can do what George .... [Link] Sun, 18 Sep 2011 20:27:00 +0000 [Comment]

Creately  is a pretty-good online drawing tool but I'm not sure how far I can push my free account so I'm experimenting with embedding graphics to make the map more ....

#CHANGE11 : MOOCs and Other Animals
gbl55, Connection not Content
Having decided some time ago to register for Change11 I find I’ve done very little by way of preparation and may become a Lurker. This contrasts with CCK11, my first MOOC, where I did some initial reading before the course began and had a reasonably clear idea about my learning objectives and expectations. But one [...] [Link] Mon, 19 Sep 2011 09:00:14 +0000 [Comment]
