I’m Taking an Open MOOC and I Like It.
An excellent opportunity to take a MOOC “Introduction to Open Education” (also available on the open web at #OpenEdMOOC) on the edX platform appeared on my radar over the summer. I was kicking around for months which platform to leverage for a reset of my #OpenFlip cMOOC which introduces learners to the four pillars of flipped learning with the Flipped Learning Network in collaboration with my institution the Tecnológico de Monterrey. When I landed at the edX page, it suggested this course for me.
The fact that this was led by David Wiley and George Siemens sealed the deal. Ever since I stumbled across their work a few years ago (more about that below) I have admired the work of both of these pioneers in open education.
You will also notice the ¨redundancy¨ of using Open in the title when it already says ¨MOOC¨. More below.
