On Friday, Jenny, Roy, and John presented their research paper on the Ideals and Reality of Participating in a Massively Open Online Course (.pdf). The paper was delivered at the Networked Learning Conference in May. The recording of the Elluminate session is available here (a few audio problems in the first few minutes). It was a great session – both the presentation and the discussion.
Following the event, Jenny posted a few thoughts on the difference between presenting in Elluminate vs. presenting at a traditional conference:
It’s ironic that I spent over £1000 of my own money getting myself to the Networked Learning Conference where we had just 20 minutes to present our paper, were allowed time for only one question, where the session was attended by less than half the people in yesterday’s Elluminate session and where there was no follow up discussion ….. and yet yesterday for the Elluminate session, I could sit in the comfort of my own home, with a cup of coffee, seated in a comfortable chair, incurring no additional expense and discuss our research with 40 people!
