MOOCs or Massive Open Online Courses

I recently listened to Stephen Downes, who talked about connectivism and teaching/learning online with  MOOCs. He stated that the core elements in a learning society are:

  • Knowledge
  • Learning
  • Community

As I move through my first MOOC, I am beginning to understand the importance of community in online learning. I have taken several online courses in the past and I always cringed when we had to go “group” projects. I preferred to work alone and be assured that the task was completed correctly an on time. Now I realize, I can learn so much more in a course from my group members. I might study something I am unfamiliar with, because I know I have the support of others in the group. We can all work together to bring about a project.

Establishing and working in an online group community can be challenging but with the online tools we have, it is much easier than it was in the past. Online group work is becoming less scary for me.

Jing and Screencast

Teachers and Students both should learn how to use Jung and Screencast with Powerpoint. All three tools prove to be invaluable in asking question and showing how to do something, We are all visual learners to some extent and seeing how something is done can explain so much!

Engage on the World Stage

I am progressing through the Moodle Course and hopefully have been able to add the link to my blog, for RSS Feed. I found the Engage on the World Stage by Jason R. Levine, quite motivating and I thought I would share!

this follows the fact that I recently watched the movie Waiting for Superman,” which is a reflection of America’s Public Education system. Engagement of the students (and the teacher) is key to student learning. A teacher needs to draw the students into the learning.
