We held an open google hangout session, to discuss and reflect on the first week of the MOOC at Tuesday, 15 Jan, 12:00 GMT
The recording lasts for 1 hour.
This video is a record of the convergence session that took place as part of the OLDS MOOC http://olds.ac.uk on Tuesday 15th January 2013.
The session involved Yishay Mor, Simon Walker, Peter Bryant and Josh Underwood from the OLDS MOOC team and chaired by Patrick McAndrew with Anna Page handling the questions. We were delighted to have Ronald McIntyre join us from the OLDS MOOC learners and many others posted their questions online.
Some of the themes that were discussed: the challenge of forming teams and study circles and some participant initiatives (see: http://wallwisher.com/wall/kn2n9f60l5), open vs. closed platforms for MOOCs, the role of OER (wait for week 6!), non-HE MOOCs (see: https://www.canvas.net/ and http://www.iversity.org/) the role of narrative in learning design (coming up next!) and camping in New Zealand (http://www.flickr.com/photos/penbentley/sets/72157632460579364/).
