Post Title: Stories to TEL: MOOCs, what about them?
By VanessaVaile, Feed Name: MOOC Madness
Preview: That about nails it. Enough said, but there’s still more worth reading, so please do. MOOCs have caught the public eye and not just those of education professionals. The reason is that potentially they change the game of higher education. Not just because some claim they will…but also because many fear or predict they will. So, [...]

Post Title: Google Hangout
By wolfinthenight13, Feed Name: wolfinthenight13

Preview: Why niot go back to the three videos supplied at the start ... the ones by Dave Cormier on how to navigate through a MOOC.  They are very helpful.  Also, it is quite normal to be confused and feel overwhelmed for the first few weeks ... almost everyone does.  Once you find your bearings and flow with what interests you, it does become more interesting and the learning becomes ....
