AB's Learning Journal - Week 1
Cloud created by:

OK, getting started here (after several frustrated - and frustrating - attempts using IE9 , which didn't work - now on Chrome and all OK, so far!)
My learning objectives for this week are:
1). Familiarize myself with OLDS MOOC - layout, material, and so on.
(Progress - ongoing. Have looked , posted and encountered several technical difficulties which appear to be with the site/tools)
Uodate on 20/1/13 - I think this will always be 'ongoing' as new threads, sites and information grows exponentially. The MOOC certainly has a 'nature's excess' feel about it!
2) Identify project areas that I am particularly interested in and are relevant to my working context.
(Progress - ongoing. Checking Dreambazaar area on regular basis to identify areas of common interest and have now posted feedback on a few.)
Posted own project idea 'Unit 0'- this prompted some responses but then other commitments prevented quick follow-up so have decided to develop a Study Circle which includes and devlopes original idea with fellow colleague, instead.
Update 20/1/13 - Have now identified - and restricted myself to - a couple of areas of interest (including own joint Study Circle 'From Unit 0 to Publication') Think that will be more than enough to be involved in, in terms of available time. May also read (but not participate directly) in others of interest. Again, choices and decisions to be made.
3) Learn to create cloud/cloudscape in Cloudworks which I have not used to any extent before.
(Progress - ongoing. Finding system 'flaky', unusable with IE9 and still familarizing myself).
Update: 20/1/13 : This is ongoing - need to understand howCloudworks structure and hierarchy works more.
