MultiMOOC applies connectivist and multiliteracies approaches to exploring recent developments and issues in open learning, and how these might apply to more conventional settings. The session is paced on Cormier’s 5 stages of MOOC participation: orient, declare, network, cluster, focus. Participants declare their personal goals for the course and trace their progress through eportfolios, or simply tagging blog posts and other online artifacts, and finally are awarded badges. Any reasonable level of participation earns a badge in the course. Co-moderators for 2014 were Vance Stevens, James Buckingham, and Ali Bostangioglu.

This presentation was presented Apr 27 at the 7th VRT conference, http://www.virtual-round-table.com/events/multimooc

  • 1. Vance Stevens 7th Virtual Round Table Online Conference EVO Symposium April 27, 2014
  • 2. This slide intentionally left blank • This slide presentation is available at http://slideshare.net/vances • I have noticed that hyperlinks for URLs at Slideshare.net do not function in the first two or three slides – Therefore it’s a good idea to have slides at beginning with no URLs – But if you are viewing this at Slideshare.net you don’t mind if the URL above doesn’t work Vance Stevens: MultiMOOC EVO Session 7th Virtual Round Table, Apr 27, 2014
  • 3. What is MultiMOOC? • It’s a community • It’s an EVO session • It emulates a cMOOC (not an xMOOC) • It’s NOT a MOOC Vance Stevens: MultiMOOC EVO Session 7th Virtual Round Table, Apr 27, 2014
  • 4. So why call it MultiMOOC? MultiMOOC derives from a succession of EVO sessions (co-) moderated by Vance Stevens • Webheads in Action (2002 ongoing) • Various intervening sessions; e.g. Webpresence (2005-2006) http://www.tinyurl.com/4j8kb • Multiliteracies (2009-2012) • MultiMOOC (2013-14) http://goodbyegutenberg.pbworks.com Vance Stevens: MultiMOOC EVO Session 7th Virtual Round Table, Apr 27, 2014
  • 5. More Precursors to MultiMOOC • English for Webheads 1998 – 2002 (link at URL below) • Webheads in Action 2002 ongoing - http://webheads.info • Webheads in Action Online Convergences 2005, 2007, 2009 • Learning2gether 2010 ongoing http://learning2gether.net/about/ • Multiliteracies 2004 to 2012 (archive at URL below) • MultiMOOC 2013-2014 http://goodbyebutenberg.pbworks.com Vance Stevens: MultiMOOC EVO Session 7th Virtual Round Table, Apr 27, 2014
  • 6. Underlying Philosophy – To give participants an alternative perspective on what it means to teach and learn – To form and perpetuate communities and networks • Appreciated by like-minded Coolaid aficionados Vance Stevens: MultiMOOC EVO Session 7th Virtual Round Table, Apr 27, 2014 • Experimental • Reliant on chaos • Designed or not designed MultiMOOC and its precursors have always been
  • 7. What’s in the Coolaid? Over this time Vance has been sipping frequently from the Coolaid of Connectivism • Siemens, 2004 http://www.elearnspace.org/Articles /connectivism.htm • CCK 2008, 2009, 2011 Vance Stevens: MultiMOOC EVO Session 7th Virtual Round Table, Apr 27, 2014 • Siemens and Rheingold, chaos in learning https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VMfipxhT_Co • Siemens 2013 would point students to Coursera for content and use his course for in depth discussion https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PGh4Xvp--iY https://sites.google.com/site/themoocguide/home
  • 8. How does this work in MultiMOOC? • Five-week course patterned on Cormier’s 5 steps for success in MOOCs http://youtu.be/r8avYQ5ZqM0 • Week 1. Orient 2. Declare 3. Network 4. Cluster 5. Focus Vance Stevens: MultiMOOC EVO Session 7th Virtual Round Table, Apr 27, 2014
  • 9. Week 3: Networking Past two years we have worked as follows: • Week 1, Orient (the usual) • Week 2, Declare (introductions out of the way) • Week 3, Network, now let’s join a MOOC – 2013 Alec Couros’s MOOC http://etmooc.org/ – 2014 Rhizo14 The Community is Curriculum https://p2pu.org/en/courses/882/rhizomatic- learning-the-community-is-the-curriculum/ Crafting the ePerfect Textbook http://ebookevo.pbworks.com/w/page/70262228/ Welcome Vance Stevens: MultiMOOC EVO Session 7th Virtual Round Table, Apr 27, 2014
  • 10. How is this working out? • What doesn’t appear to work – Nature of chaos is lack of structure (cat herding) • Not well understood by co-moderators • Not well understood by participants • Not well managed by lead moderator • What appears to work – Jim Buckingham managed to implement BADGES (using Credly) – In 2014, participants disappeared into Rhizo14 • Therefore the approach works ?? • Fulfillment of a dream  Vance Stevens: MultiMOOC EVO Session 7th Virtual Round Table, Apr 27, 2014
  • 11. MultiMOOC as fulfillment of a dream EVO has long needed an “umbrella” “course” • Where participants in other sessions can aggregate knowledge in a central space • cMOOCs show us ways of aggregating that knowledge – GrssHopper and “Daily” aggregation of content http://grsshopper.downes.ca/ – I have a question @eduquestion #eduquestion Vance Stevens: MultiMOOC EVO Session 7th Virtual Round Table, Apr 27, 2014
  • 12. Whither MultiMOOC? Options for next year • Stop it already! Learn from someone else for a change  or join some other team • Formally funnel weeks 3-5 into an existing MOOC – Would mean planning for weeks 1-2 • Orientation in MOOCs • How to aggregate so content returns to EVO center – Dissipation in Week 3 with reliance thereafter on community discussion of content aggregation • Restructure with co-moderators engaged in weekly planning Vance Stevens: MultiMOOC EVO Session 7th Virtual Round Table, Apr 27, 2014
