MOOC month one
Writing about web page http://change.mooc.ca/
So #change11 MOOC is now entering week five and as expected it's been tough to set aside as much time as I would have liked so really feeling no more than a lightweight engagement. However, MOOCs let you adapt your learning around the time that you have so I'm not too worried about this. This week I've also got the focus of a face to face meeting with colleagues from around the institution who share an interest in discussing MOOC topics, really looking forward to this!

Whilst I'm wrestling with the question "why have I signed up for another MOOC?" I guess readers of this blog are more likely to be a few steps back asking "MOOC? WTF?" don't worry readers Dave Cormier has put together a video just for you...
So now we have that bit out the way, why do I choose to MOOC?
Simply put, because it suits the way I like to learn and it's FREE.
MOOC "students" are introduced to course facilitatorsand an outline schedulesplit into one week segments. "Students" then choose how they interact with helpful guidelinesreplacing rules and regulations.
My personal challenge for #change11 MOOC is to share more, not just via online networks but through face to face meetings with interested colleagues at University of Warwick.
