My introduction video for the newly launched ETMOOC – something I might be lukewarm about were it not something that Alec Couros was fostering. His own network connectivity, not the linking for the same of linking, is something you want to be part of- witness over 1000 people who signed up, 200 of them fitting in a Collaborate room last night for an introduction.
This is the kind of “M” in MOOC I can get behind.
For lack of being creative in doing something novel with media, I filmed myself on my iphone, obviously not having a clear sense of what I wanted to say. This is from my home in Strawberry Arizona, (yes that is a real place).
Apologies it is taking me longer to get everyone’s blogs subscribed; to do it well, I end up checking about 80% of the URLs. Actually this has been a fantastic way to quickly scan this new community- there are people from many points of the globe, a lot of people doing a blog for the first time. This is not the usual gathering of the same edtech crowd, a lot of on the ground teachers, adminsitrators, tech folks, at all levels.
