This MOOC requires significant navigation skills, because discussion is widely distributed. The team must already be exhausted – either that or they have a lot of people working on this MOOC to distribute the load, which of course raises the investment cost. The next stage is for people to team up and work on design projects together, which might be difficult for those who have entered the MOOC as individuals rather than as a team, or alongside colleagues.

Jenny Connected

I have been struggling to clearly identify the issues associated with assessment in PLEs/PLNs – which are probably similar to those in MOOCs or distributed networks. Is it desirable/possible to assess learners in course which takes place in a distributed network? Is it possible/desirable to accredit learning in course which takes place in a distributed network? Both assessment and accreditation are possible across distributed networks if the numbers are manageable.

Activation of collaborative communities is hampered by the communicative fragmentation that is at least partially caused by their distributed tool systems. We show how collaboration patterns can be used to design appropriate socio-technical solutions.

This process, though, is usually bounded by the learning objectives laid out at the beginning of the course of study by the designer/instructor. There is still, implicit in most widely held conceptions of learning that the instructor, designer, or at least the institution knows what a learner should get out of a given course. The other, the distributed model of community, i.e., multiple membership roles in multiple communities, offers far greater flexibility , though less control.
