Reflection on #oldsmooc-w1 Helen Whitehead

It's been a very confusing week compounded by four days sick with gastrric flu - and I don't think I've yet recovered.

I think I've learned a lot about how NOT to organise a MOOC!  I have used Cloudworks before and I don't find it easy, and I don't find it does what I want - I want to add cloudscapes to my cloudscapes....  If I want to add learning journals to a team cloudscape I can't because they are in themselves cloudscapes.

I can't figure out the difference between a team and a study circle and no-one is interested in my project and I feel that the girl who's picked last at rounders.  Which is why I created Team Lost - which is a team associated with other teams - which thinking about it I guess makes a study circle...  Do I get my badge?

Anyway I hope Team Lost can help each other out!

I have seen a few projects I'm interested in and I'd be interested in bringing my project alongside theirs, but I can't join a team if a team is several people working on the same project because I am already heavily committed to my own projects and have no time for other people's except hapopy to be a critical friend and to give feedback on their ideas.  Not sure how that fits with this MOOC :(  Can we be in more than one team and more than one study circle?

Helen, I'd be happy to share with you - not the project but any info and thoughts. I dont see why we couldn't be in as many groups as we can manage! I left out most of week 1 but managed week 2 because every usual thing was called off because of the snow. But now that everything is back to normal (plus a poorly child) I'm not  sure how I will manage week 3 - Cherry-pick, I think!
