cMOOCs and xMOOCs – key differences

Jenny Connected

As xMOOCs become more successful and begin to experiment with pedagogies that go beyond the didactic video lecture approach, I have been trying to understand the essential differences between the original connectivist MOOCs such as CCK08 and the current xMOOCs such as those offered by Coursera.

James Dellow on User Adoption Strategies, "a great reference that covers all the major approaches that you should consider"

Michael Sampson - Currents

He does provide a user adoption model to follow that pulls these strategies into a manageable framework, but within this approach there is still room for these different options to be fitted together into what he later describes as the user adoption "jigsaw". ". I woke up in Sydney to James Dellow's review of my book, User Adoption Strategies. Two reviews in 2 days. very cool.

Working with cultural differences

Chris Corrigan

One of the things that folks in the rest of indigenous North America don’t realize about the cultures of the west coast is how radically different they are from the cultures of the plains, desert and forests of the rest of North America. Instead they will make broad pointers, refer to hypothetical people or talk indirectly about situations. I was faced with these two different cultural contexts in the last two weeks as I went about my work facilitating groups.

Diversity is hard

According to Downes, the only way to avoid information cascades is to ensure multiple viewpoints and alternative perspectives from observers with different sets of prior experiences, world views and interpretations. An abundance of difference is not a convenience, it is a necessity.

I’m not sure what Dr David Vaine would make of that, nor of Dave’s slighting reference to the “factory consulting&# model. The majority of B-schools went down a dangerous road at different levels: 1 - their conception of education. Either they write for their community (monks) or for different people. They have to write differently depending on the readership they target or they are bound to produce stuff that no one understands and takes into consideration.

Then I knew we were REALLY going to do something different.”) This is one of the reasons why one on one contact prior to the meeting helps. Organizing differently starts with how we organize ourselves to do the work.
