    6. 6. “Especially disturbing is that none of the major MOOCproviders have hired anyone trained in instructional design,the learning sciences, educational technology, course design,or other educational specialties to help with the design oftheir courses. They are hiring a lot of programmers…” http://edtechdev.wordpress.com/2012/05/04/whats-the-problem-with-moocs/

    16. 16. cMOOCs:
    17. 17. Content is fragmented (not confined to a course)Knowledge is generativeCoherence is learner-formed, instructor guidedDistributed, multi-spaced interactionsFoster autonomous, self-regulated learners

    25. 25. 1. Topic & AudiencePick an area:- of personal interest and expertise- with appeal or demand for learning/discussion- what you already teach, just do it in the openWho are you targeting?- students?- academics/peers?- anyone with a pulse?
    26. 26. 2. Find someone to teach withNever teach aloneTry a colleague form a different country,different region, or with different viewsBring in guest speakers, video interviews
    27. 27. 3. Determine contentUse open articles if possibleUse multimedia resources (youtube, others)Search conference recordings/proceedingsUse: video, interactive presentations, text,simulationsLeave room for learners to create/shareTreat content as a starting point for learningconversations, not as the exclusive intent of thecourse.
    28. 28. 4. Plan spacesDistributed spaces (tags)Centralized (forums? Daily email?)Decentralized format (blogs, social media,wherever)
    29. 29. 5. Plan interactionsSynchronous (record so people in other timezones can view)AsynchronousTrails (Diigo)Tags
    30. 30. 6. Plan your continued presenceIn an open course, you are not the central node,but you remain an important nodeBe active in forums, blogs, twitter, email,whatever.Don’t try and dominate the conversation. But beactive.
    31. 31. 7. Learner creations and activitiesLearners should create stuff – i.e. artifacts ofsensemakingPromote the value of peer feedback
    32. 32. 8. Get the word out: promotion and sharingThe usual routine: your students, colleagues,listservs, etc.Get it out to your networks (Twitter, FB,conference presentations)
    33. 33. 9. Iterate and ImproveIf you’ve designed your course for fluidity, youwill add/change as you go.Listen to your course participants. They’ll let youknow what to improve.Blog your thoughts and reflections so others cantemper your thinking
    34. 34. Set your expectationsSize doesn’t matter. If you have 15+ people, you have acourse.It will take more time that you can possibly imagineIt will be extremely rewardingIt will change how you view teaching/learningYou’ll find yourself saying things in faculty meetings that willscare your peers and administrators (like “courses are dead”or “let’s open up all our teaching”)
