MOOCS! (Massive Open Online Courses)

-- PLEK12 (an open online course on personal learning environments) by Christopher Davis Sessums and Wendy Drexler  from the University of Florida ended last week. I was able to be lurking in this course and couldn’t be able to participate in all activities.  I couldn’t attend live sessions either because they were running at 2am (my time). Fortunately, all archive of Elluminate recordings are available for further access. 

-- CCK11 also just finished this week. The wrap up session of this 12-weeks course was held on Friday by the facilitators (George Siemens and Stephen Downes).  The discussion was mainly about the current situation and the future of connectivism and MOOCs.  Here is the recording of the session. Siemens created a Google Group to discuss how to plan, deliver, and research open online courses: " MetaMOOC" .

-- Another MOOC started this week about mobile learning: MobiMOOC. It will run from 2 April - 14 May 2011.
