Paul Signorelli’s archive of #oclmooc

In addition to his role as co-conspirator for #oclmooc and participation in almost all of the scheduled events (he even joined one Twitter chat from more than 37,000 feet in the air) Paul Signorelli wrote regular blog posts reflecting on his experiences in #oclmooc and how they interested with his experiences the Connected Courses Mooc. All of Paul’s #oclmooc posts can be viewed here – check them out if you haven’t already, they provide a great history of #oclmooc.


End of week 1

Wow, it’s been a great week of learning and connecting at #oclmooc! 91 participants have signed up from around the world, a number which I am sure will increase over the next few weeks.

This week participants have been introducing themselves in our Google+ community, and in their blogs, connecting and sharing learning resources on Twitter, and reflecting on their experiences in #oclmooc on their blogs. There are 38 blogs on our Blog Hub. If you haven’t added yours yet, it’s not too late. You can find out more about how to start a blog on this page, and add your blog to the Blog Hub by filling out this form.

We have also been finding out about cMoocs and connected learning. If you missed either of our synchronous events – cMooc Stories, or the webinar with Dave Cormier you can view the archives on the Archive page.

Tonight at 7pm mountain time Verena Roberts will be hosting a Twitter chat about connected learning, please join us in the #oclmooc Twitter feed. If you’ve never participated in a Twitter feed before, you can find out more here.

Tomorrow we move on to week 2 and our topic will be Digital Identity and Digital Citizenship. There is information, suggested activities and resources on the page for Week 2, and we’ll be sending an email to all registered participants with information about week 2 later today.

I look forward to more learning next week.



#oclmooc optional hangout scheduled this afternoon

This afternoon (September 28th) we have scheduled a hangout from 2-3pm mountain time. It is totally optional and we haven’t prepared an agenda. We’ve planned it as a place you could pop into to ask any questions you have, just to say hello, or as an opportunity to use Google Hangouts if you don’t have much experience with them. It will not be broadcast on air and it will not be archived.

You can pop in at any time between 2-3pm mountain time, there will be at least one person in the hangout the whole time, but you don’t have to stay for the whole hour. Click here to join the hangout. If you’ve never participated in a Google Hangout before you’ll probably find this tip sheet useful.
