The very first task is about to reflect on our experience of e-Learning activities on creating a blog, and to get to know each other, and to use the online course environment (see ).
Our reflections could cover for example:
- Introduction of ourselves and reflections on what we would like to achieve by maintaining a blog to support our learning
- Reflections on the activity as such? Was it easy or hard?
- Share links to any additional resources we found useful in completing the tasks.
- Provide tips for future learners who will be completing this activity. If we were to set up a new blog again, what would we do differently?
- Add anything our readers may find interesting or useful
I am working at national and international level on Open Educational Resources (OER); Open Educational Practice (OEP), Creative Commons (CC), and MOOCs as well as on e-learning and especially on quality issues.
I earned my PhD 2012 from Oulu University in Finland and my Dissertation was about Benchmarking e-learning in higher education. Lessons learned from international projects
I am a board member in several national and international Associations on elearning, MOOCs, and OERs, Associations like EFQUEL, EDEN, LANETO, EADTU, SVERD (I am V President in SVERD the Swedish Association of Distance Education). I use to serve as a quality reviewer for certification on quality in e-learning with EFQUEL (UNIQUe and ECB check).
At the latest EDEN Annual Conference 10-13 June 2014 in Zagreb, Croatia, I was awarded the EDEN Fellow 2014.
I have done several MOOCs (some 30 in number) before. I also use to be a facilitator in MOOCs. My main concerns are quality issues and I use to be a consultant on those issues.
I am very curious to take part in this I think 5th time at the OCL4Ed
Would like to share a link to the Norwefgien MOOC Investigation, from the Government on MOOCs to Norway. I will share the link because I believe it will have consequenses in the Nordic countries
Concerning writing Blogpost I do that quite frequently. I will use my current Blog for this course as well. I took part as a bloger in the Spring Blog Festival an online course on WizIQ with Dr Nellie Dutsch.
But if I should create a new blog, I will have done it somewaht different, maybe more structured and more ineractive.
Will see if I can do something to update this one
