The E-Learning and Digital Cultures MOOC doesn’t begin for another week but there is already a lot of activity in the course. Many of the participants in this class have already set up several social media sites and have started tweeting about the class. This is the 3rd MOOC I’ve taken and the first hosted on Coursera.
Both of the other MOOCs I participated in were hosted on Blackboard’s Coursesites. The first was Curt Bonk’s “Instructional Ideas and Technology Tools for Online Success” and the 2nd was “Designing an Exemplary Course.” Unfortunately I didn’t complete either of these MOOCs. I’m a bit skeptical and wonder if MOOCs are just a passing fad but I hope to complete the EDC MOOC so I can get a better sense of the full MOOC experience.
Check out some of the activity about this course on Twitter #EDCMOOC. You can find me on Twitter @kkeairns.
