Feedback to the assignments of week 2

Dear learners, I’m very excited about your work with regard to the assignments 3,4,5. You got involved into the topic of week 2 and did a good job to develop concrete ideas for your future MOOC! When you are reading my feedback please keep in mind that it’s only the opinion of one person. Don’t take me too serious. If my thoughts are useful, implement them, if not forget them! And … Thomas and I as well didn’t fulfill all the requirements in this MOOC Camp 😉 Assignment 3 First I found it amazing that some of you wrote an introductory text for…

Rhythm in a MOOC

In week 2 we can perceive the rhythm in this MOOC, the waves of interaction and silence. Preparation On Sunday evening we publicized the new content of week 2. We scheduled the post of introduction for Monday morning. Silence ! On Monday there was silence, nothing happened – a challenge for us moderators! We run and check: do all the links work? Did we provide all necessary information? We met and discussed this silence and tried to put our minds at ease by making jokes. On Tuesday I decided to motivate learners with a new post. It was important that there are already…

Videochat in the MOOC Camp

The video chat was an amazing experience. As always the technique didn’t work at the beginning. Thomas opened the video chat half an hour before the actual time and we struggled with audio, start of the hangout … At least all the web cameras worked. Nearly all the problems were solved at 17:00 CET. And hopefully the learners didn’t perceive how we improvised and changed our well planned agenda 🙂 Nevertheless the hangout worked well and we are satisfied. The video chat gives the opportunity to connect with the learners – and of course I was happy about the positive…

Jutta and Thomas discuss week 2 and the importance of text in a MOOC

Time goes by very quickly and here we are, already in week 2 of our MOOC Camp – therefore Jutta and Thomas discussed in a short video chat, what to expect in week 2 and if text creation is still important and relevant in the age of video and animated content. Check it out – and sorry that my hair is messy, Thomas didn’t warn me. Week 2 contains one page of content: Week 2: About text in a MOOC and three assignments.
