WHAT IS A P2PU COURSE?•Anatomy of a P2PU Course•Example: Curating Our Digital Lives•Overview of Challenges•Example: Webmaking 101•What are Badges?•The Future! Uniﬁcation•How to Get Started
WHAT IS A P2PU COURSE?• Tasks with threaded discussions• Often weekly-- learners complete the tasks in a close timeframe• Courses usually have a facilitator
P2PU COURSE EXAMPLE:CURATING OUR DIGITAL LIVES• Tasks prompt conversation and build social presence, i.e. “What is Curation?”• Courses feel like small communities of learners• Often used in a “book club” format--readings and discussions
WHAT IS A P2PU CHALLENGE? • A crisper user interface • No facilitator: learners can work at their own pace • Offer badges as an assessment mechanism • Generally more project-based--users submit evidence of their learning
P2PU CHALLENGE EXAMPLE:WEBMAKING 101 • Each task is a discrete project • Badges recognize both projects and 21st century skills
WHAT ARE BADGES? Require 1 •3 types of badges Require evidence of peer vote project... Skill •Inﬂuenced Badges Community Gauge Badges Often used “how well” a peer has Peers assess on a rubric for traits (“Team by a gamefulaccomplished Player”) a task Stealth theory of Badges motivation Awarded automatically by the system
FUTURE PLANS: COURSESFTW!• Unifying Challenges + Courses into 1 learning experience• Supporting 2 types of experiences is confusing, not sustainable• We’ll bring together the best of the Challenge UI and the “social” features of Courses
