Hi
 
 

 

 

 
 
hello ETT world
 
 

 

 

 
 
Doug!
 
 

 

 

 
 
Hi all!
 
 

 

 

 
 
 
 

 

 

 
 
No, just hanging out today while I correct. Listening is good!

Hey Peggy!
 
Hi, Peggy!

Hello all!

Hello Maria
Maria Colussa

 

 

 
 
thatΒ΄s the idea, to make our lives easier
Vanessa Vaile

 

 

 
 
I don’t have a video or sound
jefflebow

 

 

 
 
anyone else have audio/video issues?
Maria Colussa

 

 

 
 
Nop everything is fine in the Southern hemisphere
Vanessa Vaile

 

 

 
 
I can watch and listen on you tube but not here, https://edtechtalk.net/live/ihaq

 

 

 
 
everything is fine for me πŸ™‚
Maria Colussa

 

 

 
 
Hi Peggy!
jefflebow

 

 

 
 
Vanessa, have you tried refreshing https://edtechtalk.net/live/ihaq ?

 

 

 
 
I got the error message, refreshed and all is fine now.

 

 

 
 
Hello all … been so long I forgot how to get here

 

 

 
 
hello
Maria Colussa

 

 

 
 
Hello Carol!

 

 

 
 
ah, finally accepted me πŸ™‚

 

 

 
 
hooray Carol!!

 

 

 
 
Hi and thanks Peggy … for the url

 

 

 
 
can you track assignments/tasks on Schoology?
Vanessa Vaile

 

 

 
 
Jeff, refreshed several times
jefflebow

 

 

 
 
yes, Peggy. Sorry for the tech issues Vanessa.

 

 

 
 
still not seeing the chat window, Vanessa? I had the same problem with in a podcast last hour. but when I logged into this one it came up fine. Which browser are you using? I’m using Firefox which just had an update.

 

 

 
 
hahaha! solving problems is so easy here!!!

 

 

 
 
Hooray! Dave has sound connection

 

 

 
 
I think using Weebly for that is a great idea! simple, free, easy to use
Vanessa Vaile

 

 

 
 
Peggy, is fine. It’s the video. I opened YouTube to get it because it is not running here

 

 

 
 
the clients don’t need access to the entire course do they?

 

 

 
 
thanks
 
This was our first iteration … https://sites.google.com/site/oerforccr/
Maria Colussa

 

 

 
 
hahaha! Archaeaologistis! I am imagining them trying to figure out my things!!

 

 

 
 
I recognize the Drupal face πŸ™‚

 

 

 
 
I agree with Dave…. use Moodle πŸ™‚
Maria Colussa

 

 

 
 
Once I tried to use Moodle and I found it very difficult, should I try it again?

 

 

 
 
Yes, I a=gree about Moodle

 

 

 
 
No

 

 

 
 
I agree with Maria

 

 

 
 
I learned to use Moodle so that’s saying something… πŸ™‚ I like it!

 

 

 
 
not pretty, but simple
 
You guys (ladies) are awesome! I feel like this is a therapy session πŸ™‚

 

 

 
 
Not really that simple anymore, either. Enrollment methods alone confuse most of my teachers. And it’s really hard on the servers.

 

 

 
 
keep it simple Jen πŸ™‚ Moodle will do what you want πŸ™‚

 

 

 
 
πŸ™‚ therapy for all

 

 

 
 
great point about ability to track with Moodle!

 

 

 
 
You can make Moodle as complicated or simple as you want
Vanessa Vaile

 

 

 
 
I have a serious LMS allergy — prefer open indie arrangements like Lisa Lane’s for POTcert and Laura Gibbs’ http://anatomy.lauragibbs.net/
 
Me, too, Vanessa!!!
jefflebow

 

 

 
 
Me three.
Vanessa Vaile

 

 

 
 
but then I am de-institutionalized and running something less formal than courses
jefflebow

 

 

 
 
Lisa’s site is lovely
Vanessa Vaile

 

 

 
 
yes, and she’s been tweaking it for several years

 

 

 
 
I prefer indie, and not able to use Moodle anymore … but it is one way to go

 

 

 
 
I think that’s a compelling argument re need for funding in the future.
Vanessa Vaile

 

 

 
 
Carol and Jeff, take a look at Laura Gibbs’ too

 

 

 
 
Thanks, Vanessa … will do
Maria Colussa

 

 

 
 
Thanks Vanessa, IΒ΄ll check it out later
Maria Colussa

 

 

 
 
I have been using Blogger to blog, not to teach, and still I find trouble embedding badges for eg
Vanessa Vaile

 

 

 
 
Take a look at her http://oudigitools.blogspot.com/ too
Vanessa Vaile

 

 

 
 
Who else here is in Connected Courses?

 

 

 
 
is that Lisa’s site that you posted earlier? livingarchives?
jefflebow

 

 

 
 
Dave’s site circa 2007
Maria Colussa

 

 

 
 
I am doing a Coursera course on Online Teaching https://www.coursera.org/course/ltto
jefflebow

 

 

 
 
Maria, any consensus there about what to use?
Maria Colussa

 

 

 
 
nop, it really is up to the teachers what platform to choose, not many new things out there
Vanessa Vaile

 

 

 
 
Connected Courses, http://connectedcourses.net/

 

 

 
 
great summary Dave πŸ™‚ can’t wait to hear what she decides πŸ™‚
Vanessa Vaile

 

 

 
 
just not the same without Dave though

 

 

 
 
my vote is for Moodle πŸ™‚

 

 

 
 
Mine too, for now, anyway

 

 

 
 
report back Jen πŸ™‚

 

 

 
 
thanks Vanessa

 

 

 
 
Well, this was fun … as always πŸ™‚ thanks

 

 

 
 
yes EdTechBrainstorm!!!! bring it back!
jefflebow

 

 

 
 
Thanks very much all
Maria Colussa

 

 

 
 
thank you!
 
Thank you EVERYONE!! Seems the old issues / problems / needs never go away πŸ™‚

 

 

 
 
Thanks all!

 

 

 
 
do you have a question for next week?

Ethics of innovation … awesome topic!
 

 

 

 
 
A pseudonym is only so good at protecting your identity though. It’s more a false sense of security :/
 
@jason … yes … it screams “false” in my layers πŸ™

 

 

 
 
I was in Massive Teaching, it was definitely icky. I think what came from it was already known, it just made some things unignorable. Whether or not that’s good is anyone’s game
 
 
That is the cool thing about “transparency” … it reveals the “icky”

 

 

 
 
There is some literacy involved in scumbag detection
jefflebow

 

 

 
 
Love the scumbag detection literacy concept
jefflebow

 

 

 
 
Dave’s course description:
 
jefflebow

 

 

 
 
This course examines the integration of computers and other technologies into adult technology education curricula and in business and industry sectors.
jefflebow

 

 

 
 
It provides an overview of current computer-based technologies (e.g. various software and presentation programs, Internet, World Wide Web resources, CD-Roms, online communication, Computer Assisted Technology), and the effective use of other multimedia technology (e.g. video and overhead projectors). Students develop animation skills for instructional purposes and learn audio production processes.

 

 

 
 
For Dehaye and the did anything give off the ego tip, he posted a document after deleting the course material and he was talking about how his goal then was confusion, students, university, Coursera, and journalists, and how he was hoping to generate publicity
 

 

 

 
 
This is the description for Massive Teaching: 
“Teaching goes massive: new skills required
The course offers a review of (at least) the business, legal, pedagogical and technical aspects of MOOCs, destined to higher education professionals who might feel threatened by them in terms of job security.”

 

 

 
 
Here’s the quote from Dehaye I talked about: 
“In any case, comes Monday, I figure I will do the following: 
confuse everyone, including the university, coursera, the Twitter world, as many journalists as I can, and the course participants. The goal being to attract publicity.”

 

 

 
 
Just pace around in circles angrily.

 

 

 
 
Start with this: “Let’s do the wave “Goodbye to assessment~””
jefflebow

 

 

 
 
great idea πŸ™‚
 

 

 

 
 
Does it depend on what the grade construct means? 
I understand that in some places you aren’t able to get 100% because no one is perfect, etc

Thank you, Jason! You were an awesome “audience” / participant πŸ™‚

Sometimes it seem that a new tool or technique becomes the basis for a course development … and IMO, it is the tail wagging the dog … and not particularly useful .. what have your experiences been along these lines?

relates to blended learning (i.e. how to engage f2f learners in online activities?) or something like that
