View from my all flickr members have a nice day ..

January 25, 2009

A Sunday sunrise at about 6:50 AM, just before leaving for EduCon for the day.

Here's a great quote from Benjamin Franklin. I didn't fail the test, I just found 100 ways to do it wrong.

Bench at the EduCon build. The jokaydia Estate, Second Life.

(Version 3) My submission for the the 2013 Saylor Foundation Digital Education Conference.


My poster/meme is targeted at exposing the mixed bag of what people mean by the term Massive Open Online Course, or MOOC. As with many trending topics, many people and institutions have jumped on the MOOC bandwagon, but have little shared understanding of what they actually are, or what they are useful for. By adding prompts around the potential meaning of each letter, I wanted to represent visually the fuzziness of the concept, and the need to develop a better taxonomy of what it means to learn online.


Although I have represented this concept visually myself, I would not have come up with the idea without attending Educon in Philadelphia in January 2013. I borrowed the tagline from Jon Becker, Assistant Professor at VCU.

Glimpsed through the train window: one of the seven tiny lighthouses that still exist in the Hudson River.

#ds439 Today's theme is red. Red hot? Red paint? Or something else?


What else for a Fri Night! Take me home! It has been a long week and I am not at Educon! So yes, ruby slippers take me someplace!
