#fslt12 MOOC Distributed Learning Spaces

Over the weekend I prepared a video presentation to provide a brief overview of the learning spaces we will be working in during this MOOC. But on this MOOC we are expecting people who are not only new to learning and teaching in Higher Education, but might also never have done an online course, or might not have worked in distributed online spaces, like we will be doing for this course. Working across distributed spaces does require some self-organisation.

#PLENK2010 Assessment in distributed networks

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? Presumably these participants are not looking for their learning outcomes to be assessed.
