NaNoWriMo & the MOOC Relationship
Rolin Moe, All MOOCs, All The Time, Nov 01, 2012
National Novel Writing Month, known colloquially as NaNoWriMo, starts today and runs through the month of November, encouraging participants to write 50,000 words toward a novel.  This is the 14th year of NaNoWriMo, and the number of registered participants has grown from 21 “overcaffeinated yahoos” to more than a quarter of a million in 2011.  And [...] Thu, 01 Nov 2012 18:14:20 +0000 [Comment]

MOOCs and the Teaching Profession
Rolin Moe, All MOOCs, All The Time, Oct 30, 2012
Months ago I had a conversation with a friend of mine who works for an organization with strong ties to the charter school movement.  I respect him and a mutual friend of ours, and because I have a visceral problem with the charter school movement, I wonder how he and this other friend could have [...] Tue, 30 Oct 2012 18:29:23 +0000 [Comment]

Connectivism Applied: The Toddler Test
Rolin Moe, All MOOCs, All The Time, Oct 25, 2012
Recently I posted about my current research into connectivism and my belief that it is more pedagogial than theoretical.  I noted that my understanding of connectivism (something I consider integral to the discussions in #cfhe12) remains limited, and continued field use of the term would help me gain a broader understanding and perhaps come to [...] Thu, 25 Oct 2012 06:26:56 +0000 [Comment]

Predicting the Future = Knowing the Past
Rolin Moe, All MOOCs, All The Time, Oct 19, 2012
I made a comment during the first week of reading in the Current/Future State of Higher Education (#cfhe12), lamenting the lack of readings that withstood academic rigor, most notably through the journal process.  Academic journals are a source of contention and fight in open access circles (#oped12), and there are a number of journals that [...] Fri, 19 Oct 2012 03:54:23 +0000 [Comment]

Finishing Up #CFHE12 Week 1 – Economics, Ed Futures, & Bucking Tradition
Rolin Moe, All MOOCs, All The Time, Oct 18, 2012
Finishing up the readings from #cfhe12 Week 1. The Siege of Academe:  A piece on the edtech startups dotting the Silicon Valley landscape, and what they mean (or don’t mean) to the future of higher education as we know it.  The piece comes from the perspective of the innovators (stereotyped here as twentysomethings straight out [...] Thu, 18 Oct 2012 22:15:17 +0000 [Comment]

Paywalls, the Open Movement, and DMCA
Rolin Moe, All MOOCs, All The Time, Oct 15, 2012
Just last week I discussed potential problems with having an academic, rigorous reading list in an open access course such as a cMOOC.  My main contention was peer-review, empirical research (or the lack thereof) in the cMOOCs, as academic research is most often published in academic journals, journals that exist as a checkpoint to determine [...] Mon, 15 Oct 2012 16:57:04 +0000 [Comment]

Pedagogy – You Keep Using That Word…I Do Not Think It Means What You Think It Means.
Rolin Moe, All MOOCs, All The Time, Oct 12, 2012
In his reflection on the first week of #cfhe12, Bryan Alexander looks at the continued fervor behind MOOCs, as well as the focus of economics in the initial discussions coming from #cfhe12.  Bryan somewhat laments the lack of discussion on other elements, such as technology.  Looking at his perspective, I came to grips with frustration about [...] Fri, 12 Oct 2012 14:49:46 +0000 [Comment]

More from Week 1 of #CFHE12 – The Invisible College, Eroding Teachers, etc.
Rolin Moe, All MOOCs, All The Time, Oct 09, 2012
Continuing through my lit review log (which I plan to follow later in the week with some attempt at synthesis) of the first week of Current/Future State of Higher Education cMOOC: Three Reasons Why India Will Lead EdTech in the 21st Century – Dr. Joshua Kim flags India as the prime sector for educational technology [...] Tue, 09 Oct 2012 18:51:06 +0000 [Comment]

Future of Higher Education (#cfhe12) Readings – Week 1 (part 1)
Rolin Moe, All MOOCs, All The Time, Oct 09, 2012
The link between MOOCs and the future of education is pretty blatant, so I enrolled in the Siemens & Downes cMOOC The Current/Future State of Higher Education, running over the next few weeks.  The first week is dedicated to what is driving change throughout higher education. UNESCO Report on Trends in Global Education (2009) – What [...] Mon, 08 Oct 2012 20:26:03 +0000 [Comment]
