Questions I’ll bring to #etmooc

Since I’ve participated before in connectivist MOOCs, the start of #etmooc has me thinking about why I’ve come back. Sure, I’m interested in the content of the course. The topics this course will explore come up daily in my work as an instructional coach, so I think this course will help me stay current on important, emerging themes in educational technology.…

Join the #etmooc bazaar


I like the way that #etmooc (Educational Technology  & Media Massive Open Online Course) organisers have opted for a "bazaar" model rather than a "cathedral" model to structure the experience. As explained on the orientation page:

Building ETMOOC Twitter Syndication/Archive

I’m growing more and more and more and more (more?) interested in building out more syndication architectures like we have done in ds106, at a range of scales from te 600 feeds we crunch for ds106 to the 40 or so we did for the Project Community Class down to the 2 I do for my own self syndication.…
