Change11 - Week 26 in India

Just an update so people know what's happening with the course - Stephen is in India at the moment and not really able to organize things. George and Dave are on their way to India as well or soon to follow. This week's guest, Grainne Conole, is also in transit and will end up in India as well. We're all participating in the EdgeX conference in New Delhi.

The conference is being webcast live, there's a Google Group, and as well there's a ton of resources. This course, and connectivist courses in general, are among the topic of the conference. So for those of you in Change11 following along, we recommend you follow this conference as this week's theme - join the discussion, follow the Twitter list, and take part online.

As you explore EdgeX, reflect on how prepared you are to take advantage of an online event like this as a result of your participation in Change11.

MOOC and schools
T, lucidTranslucent
This week I answer to a survey of Liz, and the month of January I answered to another survey. Always will be hard to explain Mooc, because everyone wants answers that are similar to the responses of old research. The questions are also very similar to the known research.Today I'm reflecting with readings of my friends Mooc.  I read the Siemens  that people still fall within Change11 but few are writing.After the CCK11 felt immense freedom in letting go my thinking on the ....

Vast Lurker and No-lurker Participation in Open Online Courses: MOCCs and the AI Stanford like courses respectively.
brainysmurf, 343 - osvaldo rodriguez, March 6, 2012.

Thanks for this analysis, Osvaldo, it's making me sit back and think, which I appreciate. I have some trouble with using the stats on visits to a mooc home page as a basis for tracking participation. In #change11 or #cck12, for example, I rarely visit the course home page because my primary source of information comes to me by email in The Daily. Therefore, I don't *need* the course website unless I want to check out the course outline or something, which I might only do once a month. In my opinion, the phenomena of lurking and participating are particularly difficult to track when participants might be consuming and applying the knowledge in more private ways (e.g., internal websites or SharePoint at work, keeping written notes on paper, sending emails to friends, etc.) I think we also have to ask ourselves why tracking even matters and to whom it [Comment]

Wisdom of the Masses and Course Creation
brainysmurf, 106 - Multilitteratus Incognitus, March 6, 2012.

Thanks for this question, AK. As part of my instructional design role a few years ago, I was part of a working group responsible for test-driving an LMS to see if it would be a good fit for a large organization (over 25,000 users). Sadly, we did not have our business requirements fully fleshed out when we started. That would have been quite helpful. We learned that the LMS (Saba) could do just about anything we wanted it to do and could be customized and configured to the nth degree. It was quite overwhelming in terms of options. The knowledge and skills necessary for an instructional designer using and/or evaluating an LMS will vary, depending on the scope of the job and the system used. For example, is the designer developing content inside the LMS (I believe Desire2Learn does this) or is the content developed in other software (Word, PowerPoint, Captivate, other) and then loaded into the LMS? Is the designer or someone else doing the loading? A short list of knowledge .... [Comment]
