MOOC Discussion #change11
dmaclean2011, dmaclean2011, Oct 09, 2011 Came across an interesting discussion (sorry, lost the original user on Twitter) about the connectivism MOOC, which raised many comments about the validity of moocs. Some people disagree with the concept, some are obviously entrenched academics with an axe to grind. The most useful comments (for me) came from those who have taken part in [...] Sun, 09 Oct 2011 16:48:26 +0000 [Comment]

Personal Objectives
dmaclean2011, dmaclean2011, Sept 15, 2011
Nosing about on Twitter this morning I noticed that some people have posted quite specific goals about their objectives for taking part in this course. I don’t want to make things too specific, mostly due to the fact that my expectations are quite fuzzy at this point. However, I do have some general aims: evaluate [...] Thu, 15 Sep 2011 21:26:11 +0000 [Comment]
