Open learning advance organisers

Jenny Connected

We can come and go as we want – but Stephen suggested that we take part in 4 activities: Aggregate. Remix. Aggregate: gather content using Google reader (www.google.com/reader). The course newsletter (The Daily) is an example of aggregation. Produce learning materials for other people to aggregate, remix, repurpose and feedforward, so starting the cycle again.

The Messiness of Rhizomatic Learning – Words Steal My Intent

Jenny Connected

Kevin invited us to ‘Steal his poem’ and remix it. Week 2 of Dave Cormier’s open online course - Rhizomatic Learning – the community is the curriculum – is at end, and what a messy week it has been. Helen Crump has called it chaotic.

Is structure counter to cMOOC philosophy?

Jenny Connected

Once you’ve submitted your blog, please include the course tag (oped12) in your posts and they will be aggregated into a daily newsletter. I don’t see that the principles of connectivism – autonomy, diversity, openness and interaction across distributed platforms, or the key activities of cMOOCs – aggregate, remix, repurpose, feedforward, necessarily militate against structure or a curriculum.

Questions about rhizomatic learning

This is an open letter to Keith Hamon. Since it is open anyone is welcome to respond, but the thoughts here have been prompted by contact with Keith. (For For source of image – see References).

Information overload and connectivity

Jenny Connected

On one side we are urged to increase our connectivity – we are told that all learning starts with a connection, to learn we need to be well connected, to keep up in a fast moving digital age we need to know how to filter, select, aggregate, remix, repurpose, feed forward.

A New MOOC for May/June – First Steps into Teaching in FE/HE

Jenny Connected

What technologies/platforms will we use/promote and how will our choices affect our and participants’ abilities to aggregate, remix, re-purpose, feed/forward? I have been invited to work with the Oxford Centre for Staff and Learning Development to develop a short MOOC (4-6 weeks) for Educational Developers and all those interested in teaching and learning in Further and Higher Education.

Constraints drive creativity?

Jenny Connected

Aggregation (collecting information and making connections). Remixing (organizing information and connections to suit yourself). Reading through the wealth of ideas that Jon Dron has presented us with this week, the idea that constraints drive creativity caught my attention. See this post of Jon’s with reference to the quote by Stavinsky – “The more constraints one imposes, the more one frees one’s self. ….”.

Assessment of discussion forum posts in ModPo

Jenny Connected

I have already accepted that ModPo is not completely open, simply because it is tied to the Coursera platform and therefore does not have ‘open’ resources in the original cMOOC sense of participants being able to aggregate, remix, repurpose and feed forward resources at will. Today I am disappointed in ModPo for the first time. Because, I realize that it has fallen into the trap of believing that requiring posts to a discussion forum can in some way measure the success of learning.

The philosophy of MOOCs

Jenny Connected

It is also based on the activities of aggregation, remixing, repurposing and feeding forward the resources and learning that are part of the MOOC experience. There are currently lots of blog posts around, asking yet again ‘What is a MOOC?’ and about the different types of MOOCs – see for example. Osvaldo Rodriguez blog. George Siemens’ Elearnspace blog. Stephen Downes’ Half and Hour site. John Mak’s Blog.

What poets can tell us about ‘openness’ and ‘sharing’

Jenny Connected

Resources would also be openly shared with the possibility of aggregation, remixing, repurposing and feeding forward. The ModPo MOOC ( Modern and Contemporary American Poetry ) is surprising me in many ways, but mostly because in the poems we have studying in Weeks 1 and 2, there seem to be so many connections with my research into online teaching and learning.

The MOOC Bandwagon

Jenny Connected

This would, through the aggregation, remixing, repurposing and feeding forward of resources shared and created, enrich the learning experience. As others have noted – most recently Bon Stewart in her Inside Higher Ed article – everyone seems to be jumping on the MOOC bandwagon at an alarming rate. Most recently (this week) the JISC ( Joint Information Systems Committee , UK ) has jumped on it with a webinar entitled. What is a MOOC – JISC Webinar 11-07-12.

Making Sense of the Rhizome Metaphor for Teaching and Learning

Jenny Connected

There was also the understanding that the activities would be those of a CCK08 type of cMOOC – aggregation, remixing, repurposing and feeding forward, and these activities were in abundance.

Open courses in January 2011

Jenny Connected

It is fun just to look at the assignments that have already been submitted – a wonderful example of the talent and creativity that can be tapped into on the net and also a wonderful example of the four key activities of connectivist teaching and learning in action, i.e. aggregation, remixing, repurposing and feed forward. The net seems awash with open courses at the moment. Three have captured my attention are: Learning and Knowledge Analytics (LAK11).

45 provocative propositions about using social technology

Social Reporter

It should be a great warm-up for the book, which we hope will also end up on a wiki with a creative commons license to allow remixing. Proposition 38: don’t centralise, aggregate. Don’t centralise, aggregate. Over the past few months I’ve been working on and off with co-authors Andy Gibson , Amy Sample Ward , and Clive Holtham and Nigel Courtney of Cass Business School , on a book about how we can use social technologies for social benefit.
