Further thoughts about our presentation: 10th Networked Learning Conference 2016

Jenny Connected

This week Jutta Pauschenwein and I presented a paper Visualising Structure and Agency in a MOOC using the Footprints of Emergence Framework at the 10th Networked Learning Conference in Lancaster, UK. For our work ‘structure’ means how a learning design balances openness and structure and how this balance is implemented in relation to the interactivity it enables. Like him, we believe that a holistic view is needed to understand the learning experience in MOOCs.
