Growing body of research into MOOCs

and the call for papers from the Journal of Computer Assisted Learning (JCal) which, ironically, although prestigious is a closed journal – Learning Analytics in Massively Multiuser Virtual Environments and Courses. Connectivism is the proposed learning theory that started off this MOOC ‘tsunami’ (as some have called it), although I wonder if all those who convene MOOCs know about connectivism.

The Changing Role of the Learning Facilitator

Jenny Connected

Facilitating a MOOC, for example, will be very different to facilitating a community of practice such as CPsquare, or to facilitating an online learning course. These books propose a very ‘hands-on’ approach to facilitation and were designed to help a teacher make the transition from working f2f to the online environment. I still find Gilly Salmon’s approach very useful for facilitating small, task-oriented online courses.

If Meetings Don't Work, Are Conversations the Answer?

Tony talks about the dysfunctional nature of many meetings in organizations, and proposes that the answer is to have "conversations" instead. " Tony does recognize this - per his last paragraph: " Of course, I am not arguing that an organization should throw out all of its agenda-driven process meetings and replace them with conversations.
