  • What does this mean for VET? If you can imagine a VET course that gets delivered in most TAFEs or states of Australia. The delivery method is already standardised. why deliver seperate courses in seperate locations all across the country? At low cost or for free it could happen from one online outlet. - so the potential for scale and productivity to me seem obvious. Yet I haven't seen this happen.
  • Ian Goding does a similar exercise where he gets everyone in the room to stand and talk at the same time about a favourite subject. People selectively hear the other monologues that interest them.

  • Free Range?Battery?Independent brand?Supermarket brand?Free range and organic?Biodynamic…?
  • Always in media like McDonalds and CokeSome companies interested in GM remind me of predatory eLearning companies and MOOC providers.
  • Lots of similarities between x and c. both involve gardening, seed planting, watering, soil, sunshine etc

  • If research shows that around assessment most clicks go to the forums, rather than on the videos, why not start with the forums instead?

    6. WIKIPEDIA 2013 • A massive open online course (MOOC) is an online course aimed at unlimited participation and open access via the web. In addition to traditional course materials such as videos, readings and problem sets, MOOCs provide interactive user forums that help build a community for the students, professors, and teaching assistants (TAs). MOOCs are a recent development in distance education.[1] • Although early MOOCs often emphasized open access features, such as open licensing of content, open structure and learning goals and connectivism, to promote the reuse and remixing of resources, some notable newer MOOCs use closed licenses for their course materials, while maintaining free access for students
    7. WIKIPEDIA 2012 • a course where the participants are distributed and course materials are also dispersed across the web', adding that 'this is possible only if the course is open, and works significantly better if the course is large. The course is not a gathering, but rather a way of connecting distributed instructors and learners across a common topic or field of discourse
    8. ORIGIN • The term MOOC originated in Canada. Dave Cormier and Bryan Alexander coined the acronym to describe an open online course at the University of Manitoba designed by George Siemens and Stephen Downes. The course, Connectivism and Connective Knowledge, was presented to 25 fee-paying students on campus and 2,300 other students from the general public who took the online class free of charge
