Digesting #EDCMOOC feedback | Teaching 'E-learning and Digital Cultures' The dust is settling and we are beginning to get a sense of the overall impressions left by the EDCMOOC experience. We’ve been extremely grateful for the time that participants have taken to reflect on the course, in the discussion forums and in their blogs. We’ve also got some feedback via a survey we released a couple of weeks ago, from a range of people – from those who never logged in to those who formally completed the course, and everything in between. We’ll aim to share more details of this survey and its results as soon as we can. Some very positive news for us is that a large majority (82.8%) of those survey respondents who actively participated in EDCMOOC said that overall their experience was good, very good or excellent.

The following feedback was pulled from blog and forum posts, and doesn’t yet include the survey response feedback. We’ll be continuing to work on drawing this together, but we wanted to get some of this information out as soon as possible. Content. Teaching. Museum Group | E-learning and Digital Cultures.

Why We Need Digital Vikings #edcmooc « Amy's MOOCs: Professional Digi-velopment.

This is a Viking. Photo Credit: the brownhorse via Compfight cc So is this. So am I, or at least I try to be. A Digital Viking. This week the ongoing debate over the concepts “digital native” and “digital immigrant” came up in #edcmooc. I’ve seen students change to some degree, but I would hesitate to make a generalization. I propose we identify, embrace, and encourage a new type of inhabitant in the digisphere – the Digital Viking. (added note: due to the unforeseen popularity of the #digitalviking notion, I’ve created a collection which you can add to- please fell free to post text, audio, vids, or images here: ) But how does one spot (or become) a Digital Viking? Go in the Know or just Go with the Flow. 1. Hoist the Sail- Embrace the Fail. 2.

Don’t Pout- Work it Out 3. Berserker or Worker? 4. Pathetic or Aesthetic? 5. Digital Vikings know that whatever you produce and post to the Internet will be public – will be part of your legacy. Like this: Edcmooc"
