Yes, life gets curse-like interesting when after mocking something you end up using it. But here we go, the edX hosted mOOC (medium sized Open Online Course) I’ve been working on is getting its first visits. The making of this remains to be blogged (can everything ever be all blogged?), but I assembled a short […]
Sometimes your own blogging can turn around and nip at ya. One of my favorite tags of posts has been moocmocking. Now I’m riding the train, gimme an “M”… That’s right, now my current project is helping eCampus Ontario run a new round of the Ontario Extend project, starting January 2019… as a mOOC (medium […]
I’m not a MOOC completer. I am zero for life. My longest duration has been maybe 2 weeks, and more typically, much less. I am not denying that others get value of them and develop rich connective experiences. But I find the recipe structure and the activity behind a login as lifeless as the job […]

I am but a weak imitation, but over lunch could not rest (and actually forgot to eat lunch) to spin out some MOOC FiCTION “What does the future of education look […]
This is for @pumpkiny, trapped in an edupreneur conference full of MOOC hustlers… I could go for that, so who is going to be the 2000-teens version of Anita Bryant? “He’s not a talking bird, he’s a thinking bird. He thinks MOOC” Sorry, MOOC mocking helps me stay sane.
UPDATE APR 18, 2013: The archive lives! Watch the insanity!
A bit of shtick I used in today’s TCC World Online Conference keynote was an idea that settled in my noggin and would not shake loose.
I’m bored of cows as a MOOCy metaphor; I found a new one: Isn’t he cute? The inspiration comes from a wise one — Neil Young — in The Donkey and Digital Music: The Full Dive Into Media Interview. Neil was on his stump, in grand ripping form, about how the digital music format that […]
I cannot think of a more fitting MOOC-a-phor. “It’s no Big Deal” reports David Carl Spackler Wiley. DOODIE!
It’s the MOOc Mocking Channel! All Cows. All Mocking. All The Time.
