moocs of their own

There are many sources of Open Educational Resources with Creative Commons licensing that permit their inclusion. A MOOC remix with localization comprised of OERs can be developed quickly and inexpensively.

There are some logistics – connecting with the intended audience, tracking registrations if necessary and providing learner support and feedback are key to the ultimate success of the MOOC. Local facilitation is a nice feature if that is practical.

These don’t have to be fancy high-tech productions. They just need to be appropriate for the intended purpose. If the need is great and the requirements are met, the learners and their communities stand to benefit enormously.

I viewed the recording of the live meeting last week.

Lots of interesting information as well as some great original work. The categorization of MOOCs into five types was most helpful. The terms for the open / not open variations highlight the differences and allow for more productive discussions. Thanks!
