OLDS MOOC Week 2: Introduction, outline & planning
Deadline: 17 January 2013
Cloud created by:

Use this cloud to help plan your participation in OLDS MOOC week 2.
- Watch the 3 minute video introduction (embedded below)
- Look at the design & learning outcomes (embedded below) for the week and consider how well these align with your goals
- Look through the activity outline (embedded below)
- Plan your own objectives and activity for the week (see course planner).
- Summarise your plans to your learning journal and comment on how you might measure achievement of your objectives (for an example see Week 2 Planning in my learning journal).
- Make a copy of, or your own activity outline or task list, share it with your team, cross things out as you do them, embed it in your learning journal...
- Make a copy of the week 2 calendar events. Adjust events, tasks and reminders to suit your timetable. If you are in a team share your calendar within the team.
The idea here is for you to adapt the plan for this week to your own objectives and to schedule and share these with potential collaborators (shared calendars and task lists may be useful).
You might want to make suggestions about other useful tools and strategies in the discussion around this cloud.
We want you to be thinking about (self and/or peer) assessment with respect to your own objectives throughout the course.
You may also be thinking about evaluation and the extent to which the learning designs used in this course help you achieve your objectives and the designers' objectives (or not). This is also something to reflect on in your learning journals.
Help: Probably the best place to ask for help with any of the activities is on the oldsmooc discussion forum, use the week and activity number for topic.
