This entry marks a rebirth, of sorts, of this blog. Perhaps there’s some good to come of my painful learning experience of re-branding the original blog. This space will now become my learning journal for self-directed Open Education resources.
I recently signed on to the LearningSpace of The Open University after downloading some of their content through iTunes U. I have had a long-standing interest in the Open Education concept, particularly in light of the success of the OU in the UK. While newer approaches like MOOCs seem to have garnered a lot of attention, OU has quietly contained to evolve and mature.
So, I am going to take some of the writings, notes, and other findings from my disparate, disjointed, and eclectic studies, and place them here. Using this space as my learning journal I won’t be an “elearning guy”, but a Guy doing some e-learning in his ongoing professional development.
Thanks to the good folks at Instructables, who shared this list on maintaining creativity.
I’m very happy to share that I will be writing another guest blog for the good folks at OpenSesame.
This opportunity came about because of a Twitter exchange today. I saw a great list of recommendations for making your e-learning a “best seller”. The focus of the article was more about external efforts and I though that there was a good basis for similar recommendations for internally-developed resources.
Long story short, I’ll be putting my writing hat on and the good folks at OpenSesame will generously give me a space for my words yet again.
After attending a workshop by Harold Jarche, I decided to finally move my blog to WordPress. I may also do the domain thing too. I will have to post a new pointer for my twerps. Just have to tweak the theme the way I want it and then all will be good.
>I just had my blog commentary on the excellent video-based rapid e-learning approach article posted by the good folks at OpenSesame!
Nothing like a little additional exposure to motivate you!
(I’ll offer a small w00t!)
