Another MOOC – this time on Mobile Learning

Massive open online courses (MOOCs) are still a bit of an anomaly in education. However, the offers are growing rapidly – from Groom’s DS106 to the upcoming MobiMooc focused on mobile learning. As more educators join in, we have the pleasure of learning about alternative formats from each other. Each new course offers a new perspective on how to approach open courses, how to engage participants, the types of technologies that work best in different contexts, and so on. It’s still too early to determine if moocs have a future beyond experimentation. At minimum, this format gives educators a tool to tinker with how education can be changed to reflect the zeitgeist of collaboration, openness, and the internet in general.
