  • 9. What exactly is a MOOC ?
  • 10. The  mind  is  not  a  vessel  to  be  filled but  a  fire  to  be  kindled ~Plutarch
  • 11. Other trends of note…
  • 12. #etmooc  is  a  ‘Connectivist’  MOOC   (‘cMOOC)  that  is  designed  around  a  few   key  principles: The  course  is  developed  with  a  weak  ‘centre’.  While  etmooc.org  will  provide  a  level  of  aggregation,  detail,  and  direction,  the  majority  of  interactions  are  likely  to  occur  within  groups  &  networks,  facilitated  through  various  online  spaces  &  services. Participants  are  strongly  encouraged  to  develop  their  own  reflective,  learning  spaces.  We’re  hoping  that  every  learner  in  #etmooc  creates  and  maintains  their  own  blog  for  continuous  reflection,  creativity,  and  resource  sharing. Sharing  and  network  participation  are  essential  for  the  success  of  all  learners  in  #etmooc.  Thus,  we’ll  be  needing  you  to  share  your  knowledge,  to  support  and  encourage  others,  and  to  participate  in  meaningful  conversations. Together,  we”ll  make  #etmooc  a  valuable  learning  experience  for  all  participants.
  • 13. If  we  teach  today  the  way  we  were  taught  yesterday we  aren’t  preparing  students  for  today  or  tomorrow. ~  John  Dewey
