In week 12 we do look backwards to see where we are going. I do like this look-backward-event, it connects with a blog about feedback and feedforward: https://connectiv.wordpress.com/2013/10/14/potcert-teaching-online-and-feedback/ .
Did some participants leave the course? In the first weeks I do read more participant comments.
I do use full URL in this blog because I want to be clear where I am pointing at.
Week 1 https://connectiv.wordpress.com/2013/09/03/e-leren-en-bloggen-ou-en-potcert/ In this blogpost I write about the other e-learning course I wanted to do. Well I did some weeks and did not like it at all, because of content and the way it was organized. It was in a very closed platform and it was online colleges most of time. https://connectiv.wordpress.com/2013/09/02/potcert-week-1/ My introduction was at the introduction page. A bit short introduction, that could be better. https://sites.google.com/site/potcertclass13/discussions/hellointroduceyourself Started blogging and commenting.
week 2 https://connectiv.wordpress.com/2013/09/08/reading-ko-rossen/ Did write some comments on the book in this blogpost. The book is not the most attractive part of potcert. It is a practical guide and I do sometimes look into the book for information in my professional activities.
week 3 https://connectiv.wordpress.com/2013/11/14/potcert-week-3/ In this post I connect my work in a new MOOC to potcert. In potcert I learn to appreciate differences in participants, because these differences do cause thinking and creativity.
https://connectiv.wordpress.com/2013/09/05/early-mooc-and-teaching-online-ko-rossen/ Discovered Ko and Rossen do not continue their work on the website about the book. I did read some background literature Ko & Rossen added to their book in http://www.aupress.ca/books/120146/ebook/02_Anderson_2008-Theory_and_Practice_of_Online_Learning.pdf In Towards a theory of Online Learning of Terry Anderson is an overview of theories. Here I did learn the source of the word ‘heutagogy’
week 5 https://connectiv.wordpress.com/2013/10/03/e-learning-instructor-and-octopus-potcert/ Did write on teacher roles. And wrote a comment in week 5 potcertclass about social media. I do believe social media could help connect participants in an online course. I do not use a platform (with chat and communication build in) for courses and education .
week 6 https://connectiv.wordpress.com/2013/10/07/learning-is-connectiv-potcert/ Use a video of Bonny Steward and Dave Cormier, about openness and connectedness and try to connect these terms to Bloom and Romiszowski. Learned to appreciate Romiszowski.
week 7 https://connectiv.wordpress.com/2013/10/14/potcert-teaching-online-and-feedback/ about feedback and feedforward. Did learn about feedforward as a teacher tool from Laura Paciorek.
week 8 https://connectiv.wordpress.com/2012/01/16/mooc-a-heaven-for-introverts-change11/ Wanted to point at differences among participants. Silence is not always the same as not participating. When somebody is talking, listening is needed.
week 9 no blogging. Have to catch up.
week 10 https://connectiv.wordpress.com/2013/01/26/copyright-or-wrong/ en https://connectiv.wordpress.com/2012/10/08/bronnen-voor-auteursrecht-sources-for-copyright/ In my country this copyright is different from copyright in Canada and USA and other countries. I did not try to understand USA copyright problems for teachers, but did some private investigation in free rights and creative commons.
week 11 20 nov http://www.educreations.com/lesson/view/blogging-is-important-for-online-courses/13532399/?ref=app Thanks to a reminder of Lisa I did start to participate on higher level in potcert. Glad you did that.
The rubric for evaluating my work for potcert.
About Quantity op posts: I did post most of the weeks and some weeks I did post more than one post. Could post more on my blog.
Content of posts: Most posts have an image, and links. Did reflect and did post questions. Did learn to make video and like it.
Length of posts: My posts do consist of more than one paragraph. I do like short blogposts, maybe a number of short posts equals a long post?
Completing readings: Did read the book. It is still on my desk. The book did give some help in producing our Mooc on Privacy in the Netherlands
Viewing sticky posts: I did see read most of them. I need them to get introduced to the theme of the week.
Time spend, 3 – 4 hours a week average. (English is not my native language)
Commenting, I did come back to read comments on comments. Thanks Lisa for your reminder. Could take some more time to comment. I have to get used to comment in Potcert pages and not on the blogs of participants. Or to copy my comments from blogs to potcert pages.
Extending participation, I did lurk the Facebook group, did use twitter and diigo. I sometimes did comment on blogs of participants instead of putting comments in potcert pages. I could be more participating in Facebook. I did not attend synchronous sessions, because of the different time zones.
In the weeks between now and februari 2014 I will think about the way I want to go with potcert.
