More info on the course
The MobiMOOC course is a free, open, online course that is organized by
Inge Ignatia de Waard
(so no institutional affiliation), and features wonderful, mobile learning facilitators who kindly accepted to share their knowledge with anyone interested in the subject of mLearning. A great, warm applause for all facilitators: HOORAY!! And of course to all of you who make this an inspiring knowledge sharing event!
Dynamics of the course:
a MOOC is all about
dialogue, discussions and building upon each others experiences
. We all have lived long enough to know more of certain areas than others. In a MOOC we come together to enhance our knowledge on a certain field by entering dialogues, enhancing our networks and ... having fun while doing it. As such each of the resources given by the facilitators or guides-on-the-side are just possible stepping stones, not the universal truth. By gathering together each one of us will grow by communicating with each other. Looking forward to all our discussions and insights!
