#change 11 / 12 ibooks
coachcarole, Baranduda Blog, Jan 22, 2012 I visited here and realised that the edudemic has begun. Popular educational publishers are now getting the marketing edge by providing books in iBook format for the iPad savvy juniors in schools in Victoria. Now we will definitely need to be ready for a change in the way elearners will expect their reference content [...] Sun, 22 Jan 2012 12:03:04 +0000 [Comment]

Blended elearning: new or old #change11

#change11 – ‘Stealth Mentoring’
coachcarole, Baranduda Blog, Dec 07, 2011
I am listening to Clark Quinn who is speaking to the gathered Moocers in Change11 via Blackboard Collaborate and creating this blog post at the same time. This is a bit of a ‘change’ for me – trying out my new model of ‘change by stealth’ on myself. Clark asks ‘how do we actually learn’? [...] Thu, 08 Dec 2011 04:09:40 +0000 [Comment]

Contrary to former rumours, Moodle LMS is alive and well! #change11
coachcarole, Baranduda Blog, Dec 02, 2011
There is a new surge of interest in the use of the Moodle 2.0 Learning Management System in my neck of the woods. Several requests for helping others get Moodling have come across my desk in recent months and I’m focussing on methods on doing that better. Even the larger TAFE organisations are migrating their [...] Fri, 02 Dec 2011 05:04:56 +0000 [Comment]

Reflective writing posted in HootCourse as an Essay – goes directly to your blog. Now that’s cool.
coachcarole, Baranduda Blog, Nov 19, 2011
#change11 – Tweets to Hoots! I believe we all agree that it is both fashionable and educational to keep up-to-date with trends in social networking using our favourite tools. Then we end up with several places to visit online and leave our digital trail. For a new person to e-learning this can be confusing and [...] Sat, 19 Nov 2011 20:47:19 +0000 [Comment]

#change11 Listening to Nancy #socialartist
coachcarole, Baranduda Blog, Nov 05, 2011
It’s Saturday and I have had time to visit the recording of Nancy White’s stimulating, inspiring and artistic session for #change11, generously moderated by Dave Cormier and George Siemens. I was inspired! Giving myself the entire hour to listen, absorb, observe, notate and think whilst Nancy provided one of her ‘outlier’ sessions. This is what [...] Sat, 05 Nov 2011 04:51:10 +0000 [Comment]

#change11 How has e-learning changed my life?
coachcarole, Baranduda Blog, Oct 30, 2011
My thinking of late has turned to an old thorny question buzzing in the back of my brain! Maybe its result of the transition from one project(s) to another and the fact that I’m seeking true meaning for what I do online? Perhaps its my other self providing me with a ‘map’ to where I [...] Sun, 30 Oct 2011 04:03:21 +0000 [Comment]

Collective learning for #change11
coachcarole, Baranduda Blog, Oct 11, 2011
As researchers, we need to fully understand collective learning processes, the factors that affect these, and the emergent nature of collective learning. As practitioners, we have to face the challenges around whether collective learning can be planned, structured, and managed. As learners, we have to understand the inter-relationships between individual and the collective. My recent [...] Tue, 11 Oct 2011 06:30:39 +0000 [Comment]

Reflections on #change11 MOOC
coachcarole, Baranduda Blog, Sept 19, 2011
I like the idea of a regular Daily Newsletter from Steve, George and Dave for the CHANGE11 MOOC and eagerly await them. As I am fairly disciplied when it comes to ‘dealing with’ content of emails immediately, I find it best to ‘just do it’ then and there. So this morning as I looked through [...] Tue, 20 Sep 2011 00:00:35 +0000 [Comment]
