Open learning advance organisers

Remix. The course newsletter (The Daily) is an example of aggregation. Remix: Pick and choose from the content and find a way of recording/keeping track of this, e.g. using an online bookmark tracker such as Delicious, or create a blog, or take screenshots and post on Flickr or record yourself on video. Produce learning materials for other people to aggregate, remix, repurpose and feedforward, so starting the cycle again.

The Messiness of Rhizomatic Learning – Words Steal My Intent

Re-purposing, poetry and plagiarism

Jenny Connected

Is a poem written in this way an example of repurposing, or plagiarism, or both? it would be a great shame if, in our rush to lynch a couple of plagiarists and their misguided ideas of “patchwork”, “sampling” and “remixing”, we forget to remember why poetry needs experimentation.

cMOOCs and xMOOCs – key differences

Jenny Connected

Blogs, for example, are not a big feature of xMOOCs. Key activities in cMOOCs are remixing and repurposing , i.e. that content will be created, ideally co-created , through interaction with freely available open resources.

The reality of working with soft and hard technologies

Jenny Connected

The project is basically working with hard technologies, although it is making some concessions to ‘softness’, in that it is writing the training materials in such a way that users can add their own materials and to a very limited extent remix and repurpose them. So I see this as an example of a hard technology where the pedagogy is being bent to match the technology, which is being determined by cost. Jon Dron’s presentation to ChangeMOOC this week is very timely.

Alec talked about digital citizenship in terms of Cyber-safety (keeping safe and being able to discern truth from hoaxes and myths); Memes (value laden digital viruses); Copyright/copyleft (we used to consume information, now we produce, remix, share); Network Literacy; Identity (81% of children under the age of two have some form of digital footprint and some even have a footprint before birth); and Activism. Alec Couros was the speaker in Changemooc this week.

OER Issues at first hand

Jenny Connected

Evidently there are millions of pounds worth of educational resources languishing in government archives, while the powers that be decide who can have access to them and whether they can be remixed and repurposed. Will the University, which has been funded to do this project, accredit this training – for example – by allowing the modules to carry 10 or 20 credits? This week in Change Mooc - I have particularly enjoyed reading Rory McGreal’s rant.

In Rhizo14 is the community an example of territorialisation? One of the ways in which curriculum could be perceived is by the content generated by learners, and the diversity of content from poems to wordy blog posts and a lot of remixes in multimedia in Rhizo14.

The MOOC design philosophy is based on the principles of autonomy, diversity, openness and connectedness and on four types of activity – aggregate, remix, repurpose and feed forward. Tags can separate out spaces, so for example a ‘good for beginners’ tagged space could emerge.
