  • Transforms participants into community Mashup – Facilitatied Leadership Experiential Learning
  • Front Range Community College Kae Novak, Chris Luchs Advisory Board Design Delivery Marketing Connected Educator Moving to the present the Games MOOC has been more formulated into something that has rubrics and requirements, I hate to phrase it with a certain “standard” but its reached a point where arranging and organizing events has become second nature to the Organizers. A couple of notable changes are the switch from P2PU to the shivtar portal guild site, the introduction of badges and the weekly Twitter chats/Google hangouts. Most of the major changes were from our secret Advisory Board meetings where we all sat down (in Google Hangouts) and really got down to brass tacks about what was doing well in the Games MOOC and what needed to be changed. Changing the learning management system (lms) was probably the hardest thing for all of us to admit needed to happen, but we were hesitant as well. Kae was probably thinking it was for the better though Chris hasn’t complained about it too badly, collecting quantitative data is about the same. This decision came about from having a semi-more focus on the game WoW being our prime example and being able to show Gamification and teambuilding through easier means, pretty much all the organizers have at least a level 1 or up to level 20 character on the Sisters of Elune server in the starting area for when we first start out (even going so far as to reaching the new level 90 cap). Shivtar was originally intended to be a Guild (the in-game groups/clubs in WoW) database with forum and badge capabilities through Mozilla Backback core standards, this has also expanded into the real world forming bonds with other educators such as the Inevitable Betrayal Guild on the Horde side on the aforementioned server which was formed over two years ago with people who already saw the learning potential of games before we did. After a presentation by the great James Paul Gee about gamification, the idea acted as resurgence through the educational community like wild fire. We too were looking to incorporate game design into the Games MOOC back in the P2PU rendition, but the site didn’t offer that sort of thing adding another positive chalk mark on Shivtr. Even though it was a hard decision it was made for the better as we switched to the more Game-friendly lms, Shivtr. The last major change was the rough requirement of having to attend or comment on or during the live sessions that were scheduled once or twice a week in the evenings. Back in the P2PU we met frequently in SL at Front Range to do introductions before speeding off into other programs. True, SL was a great place to meet, but more and more participants became weary (I would think) of doing the whole SL program and then going into multiple programs soon after when they were just getting situated in SL became such a task in it of itself. So we still do give that option now, but we live stream the Google Hangouts in the Diner on ISTE for those that want to, but between Youtube and Twitter the competition is clear to see which people lean to. Anyways, the weekly meetings have topics that they revolve around and most of the readings, links to other pages of interest and additional resources are located on the Shivtr site while the bulk of the discussion happens live with easily twenty or more attending. In its current episode, it’s seeing over 500 participants with an astonishing growing number of 1700 and beyond. Having regulated meetings at predictable dates and times was a must. On P2PU, it was practically a free-for-all trying to schedule meetings so multiple people could come on different days; sure it was the summer, but a line needed to be drawn. From myself going by a head first volunteer of moderating and facilitating to a reserved Advisory Board member, seeing the Games MOOC evolve and change really does make me happy to have been and to continue to be a part of something so profound as the Games MOOC no words can express my gratitude to my fellow educators who are trying to make that difference that everyone talks about but rarely follows through with it.
