I have signed up for more open courses and barely participated in all of them- but I am aiming to break my mold with just off the press bavadelicious announcement from Jim Groom that he would be leading an online and open course version of his ds106 Digital Storytelling course at University of Mary Washington.
Yes, I am a card carrying OCDU (Open Course Drop Out). For now.
You will find the new course being formed over the next few weeks at http://ds106.us/ and darned if there is not a sweet integration of MediaWiki with the same TwentyTen theme, I have been so accustomed to seeing butt ugly MediaWiki sites that I stopped using them myself.
So I registered my blog at ds106.us (easier than any other course registration I did in college) (yes, I recall walking around Arizona State University, standing in registration lines with a piece of paper to get in my courses). This is my test post, and by including a screen shot of the site, am setting up a barbershop mirror effect that may just burn down the internet (if WikiLeaks scuttle does not do it first).
So now I bow down to the east and honor The Bava for unleashing his creative madness on the world.
