Week 1: OK, cloudscape and cloud set up - I think! I have used Cloudworks before so I am resonably familar with it, but still lots to learn. Onwards and upwards...

My personal learning objectives this week: become more familiar with the OLDSMOOC and Cloudworks, identify issues to explore across the duration of the MOOC I am particularly interested in.

Week 1, complete. I met my objectives - becoming more familiar with the OLDSMOOC generally and Cloudworks, and identifying issues I am interested in (social media/twitter). After some time and effort I think I have found a team to work with, focusing on social media/twitter. I had to post in Cloudworks, Google discussion board, and on Twitter to find a group - I can't help but wonder if lots of different options actually makes things more difficult rather than less... Next steps, I hope, are learning more about learning design! So far I feel I have spent more time learning Cloudworks.

Review & revise your understanding of learner context and it's relevance to learning design.
Increase your awareness of approaches to context for learning design.

Week 2:  my aims for week two are to review and revise my understanding of learner context and its relevance to learning design, and to increase my awareness of approaches to context for learning design. I have focused on two main aims, because of time constraints.
