Mélanie's Learning Journal
Cloud created by:
16 January 2013
Disclaimer: It is 4:37 am Eastern Standard Time. I am exhausted and not fully coherent. I have been trying to navigate Cloudworks, the google groups and various clouds for a few hours, well into the wee hours of the night. I have made some progress but I am still behind in the week's proposed schedule. Oh dear, I might not get a badge if I don't catch up! Only one day left before the study week is over. My intention was to be more of a lurker in this MOOC but I might actually try to go for the badge... if I can catch up.
I think the following email I sent to the Professors and Facilitators of this course could serve as a learning journal entry:
Dear Professors and Facilitators:
Thank you for following up with my question. I wrote to Professor
Yishay Mor a few hours ago and since then, I managed to create an
introduction. The explanation of core concepts (clouds, cloudsworks,
and cloudscape... I think) is helpful and the "right things, right
place" blog-explanation is also helpful. I am still trying to figure
it out the tasks sequentially. I think I have to create my own
workspace (was that the same as my introduction?) as well as a
dreambazaar and then form study circles and teams. I wonder if I will
manage this by the end of the study week. I am trying to understand
the different "spaces" for discussions and interaction. I think there
are the google groups and the various clouds... and my other "spaces"
or tools I am not ready to venture into because I am not sure of where
to start or how to establish order. I have twitter but I am not sure
how use hashtags.
Does my thinking-out-loud email give you a better understanding of my
attempt to navigate?
I am sure that if I keep exploring I will branch out properly.
Perhaps my thoughts here could have served as a learning journal?
In addition to this email correspondence, I will post a private exchange on FB. Please see below the following exchange in response to my FB post which started with a quote from this course. I loved the quote, it made me laugh out loud:
