Looking for new Mooc
First I must apologize to mozilla.org as I did enjoy teachtheweb but after week 2 and a laptop issue, I found I could not get re-interested. I quess this is why I tell people, MOOC's are not for college students or at least not most of them. It takes a high level of self discipline and a passion for the subject matter. I quess I am not that passionate about coding. Shame really, teachtheweb explained it well in week 1 "The more you put in/invest the bigger the return". I could not get excited enough to invest much and it shows.
I loved mixing pages and boning up my html and css skills but missed not being able to make the weekly session due to logistics. Week three brought grouping and I came in late; no one replied to my Google Plus so there you have it.
I'm way to much of a connectivist to feel so alone and a little behind. Different from Etmooc, where I had no problem catching up if I lagged off. But the wierd thing is I finished all of my "assignments" from etmooc.org (though not a valid word for a MOOC I suppose). Everyweek and day, I looked at my google plus others blogs and had a blast. This is me. Not #teachtheweb, which is a total bummer as I really need PD hours after a year of working at the post-secondary level and doing social media. I have lost the focus I had for etmooc. But I'd like to try again.
Anyone of my fellow MOOCer's have a new MOOC or course to suggest? I need a new MOOC for the summer. I am a connectivist at heart and have become a strong believer in connectivism and rhizomatic learning. Thanks to Alec Couros and Dave Cormier for opening my eyes. :)
And to my followers, I missed you, I'll blog more, I promise, or better yet, I'll comment more!
