Later this week I'll be chairing a (free) webinar on Learning Analytics for Assessment and Feeback. Featuring work from three projects in the current Jisc Assessment and Feedback Programme. I'm really looking forward to hearing first hand about the different approaches being developed across the programme.

Despite the hype around it, getting started with learning analytics can be a challenge for most everyday lecturers. What can you actually do with data once you get it? As more "everyday" systems (in particular online assessment tools) are able to provide data and/or customised reports, it is getting easier to start applying and [...]

So #edcmooc is now over, our digital artefacts have been submitted and reviewed and we all now move on.
I thought it would be useful to reflect on the final submission and peer review process as I have questioned how that would actually work in a couple of earlier posts. The final submission for the [...]

Week 5 in #oldsmooc has been all about prototyping. Now I've not quite got to the stage of having a design to prototype so I've gone back to some of my earlier thoughts around the potential for Cloudworks to be more useful to learners and show alternative views of community, content and activities. I [...]

It had to happen at some time, and not sure if it was karmic retribution or chaos theory, or plain old sod's law that this week the first high profile MOOC collapse occurred with the pulling of Georgia Tech's Fundamentals of Online EducationCoursera MOOC.
As many have already commented the route of the problem [...]

Stage two of my "adventures in MOOC-land" started this week as the e-Learning and Digital Cultures course started this week. I have signed up for Coursera courses before but for various reasons, I haven't got very far. However I have a lot more motivation for sticking with this course. For the past [...]

It's half way through week three of #oldsmooc, and once again I have been distracted from the actual course by the possiblities (and opportunities) that a bit of tweaking to Cloudworks could offer. One of the comments Tony Hirst made last week about the practicalities of including some of the network visualisation experiments he [...]

Well I have survived week 1 of #oldsmooc and collected my first online badge for doing so -#awesome. My last post ended with a few musings about networks and visualisation.
I'm also now wondering if a network diagram of cloudscape (showing the interconnectedness between clouds, cloudscapes and people) would be helpful ? Both [...]

So my 2013 mooc adventures have started with #oldsmooc, the OU (UK) open course on learning design. As this mooc has evolved from a number or projeccts in the JISC Currriculum Design programme (notably OULDI) and has benefitted from a small additional amount JISC funding to get it up and running.
As with [...]

Late last month the Larnaca Declaration on Learning Design was published. Being "that time of year" I didn't get round to blogging about it at the time. However as it's the new year and as the OLDS mooc is starting this week, I thought it would be timely to have a quick review of [...]
