OLDSMOOC Design

Jenny Connected

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. As Helen Whitehead (@helenwhd) has tweeted: No idea how to “form a team” in #oldsmooc.

Past incarnations however were perhaps so subtle and housed within a particular use case scenario or application context, that we never really thought about how the model could be leveraged in a very broad and compelling manner. Social network sites ( defined by boyd and Ellison for consumer sites in 2007 and extended by myself (while at Burton Group) to apply to enterprise sites in 2008 ), were instrumental in making follow models more prominent.

Poor Mental Models fail teams before they even start?

The Bumble Bee

One of the most powerful team exercises is to explore team leaders and team members "mental models" of teams, networks and groups. Mental models are the, often invisible, dictators of what actually happens in a team as opposed to what team leaders would like to happen.
