Resources for MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses) This Web page was originally created to support the poster "Re-defining Delivery and Credentialing of Scholarship in the 21st Century" at the Massey University 2012 Vice-Chancellor's Symposium on 30 October 2012. In June 2013 this page was restructured -- principally, Resources for Digital Badges was moved to its own resource page and many older and less-important MOOC resources were archived. Now (23 June 2013) the page has been updated and revised for the "Examining the Emerging MOOC (Massive Open Online Course) Model for Learning" presentation at the Future of Learning and The Digital Student conference in Auckland on 26-27 June 2013. This page offers a variety of resources in several categories and, unlike other resource pages, includes some commentary about the resource to help you determine whether to click through or not. At this point the page presentation is plain because I have spent so much time building it and maintaining it that I haven't had time to make it graphical.
The Right & Wrong Way To Use Technology For Learning So much in learning is subjective, which makes sense because so much in life itself is also subjective, and we learn in order to live. So it’s natural. Grey areas abound–the usefulness and quality of the Common Core Standards. The importance of curiosity in learning. The evaluation of technology in learning.

Background Information About UDL Do you want to learn more about UDL? By navigating through the following questions and resources, you can build background knowledge of the UDL framework, learn how to apply UDL to your instructional practice, and make connections between UDL and other frameworks or initiatives. Universal Design for Learning (UDL) is a framework for teaching and learning that includes proactive planning of curricula (goals, assessments, methods, and materials). Planning with UDL does not assume a one-size-fits-all approach; instead it takes into account the variability of all learners.
MOOCmania MOOCs, it seems, are driving us to distraction. The objects of so much current investment, fiscal and psychological, if MOOCs (massive open online courses) haven’t reached you yet, they are just a click away, coming to a screen near you soon. Cathy Davidson caused a stir last week by arguing that, if humanists are unable to convey compellingly to various publics what we do and why it is important, we will be replaced by a screen; she had MOOCs in mind. 99 Best Online College Resources on Open Courseware & MOOCs With the increasing popularity of online education has come a profusion of Massively Open Online Courses (MOOCs), Open Courseware (OCW), Open Educational Resources (OER), and other general educational resources that can be accessed online. MOOCs are usually full courses with actual assignments and a similar structure to a traditional college class, whereas OCW and OER are simply resources, such as textbooks, class rubrics, and other corollary materials that students can use to guide their independent learning. This collection isn’t intended as an ordered ranking comparing the quality of these sites, but a repository of great resources for anyone who wants to learn more about MOOCs and OCW. Many companies have set up platforms that anyone can use to create and promote MOOCs, and as the MOOC format gets more popular, there will doubtlessly be heavy competition to create the best course creation and hosting service.
