OLDS MOOC - Week 3

So I am getting ready for Week 3 of the OULDS MOOC, ambulance which I am leading on. The course has been designed to have a bit more structure than some MOOCS. It is based around the use of Google Apps. The main course has been created in Google Docs. There are discussion threads in Google Forum and a weekly synchronous session using Google Hangouts. Cloudworks is being used to enable participants to share their completed activities. It’s been a lot of work trying to get the structure right and in particular ensuring the structure is scalable in terms of the large number of participants. My focus in Week 3 is on a range of Conceptual Learning Designs – such as the Course Features, buy Course Map and Activity Profile. I have included a short introductory video and a Slidecaste on the 7Cs of Learning Design. There are also links to further resources and readings. Colleagues from the University of Wollongong (Lori Lockyer, Sue Bennett and Shirley Agostinho) have also included an activity based on their work. It will be interesting to see how the week goes and I hope to get feedback from participants on their experience of being involved. The site for the course is http://olds.ac.uk.
