Title: Mindmap of Qs has turned into a Help resource!
Preview: Earlier this week in my MOOC-newbie panic I created a mindmap with an absolute swamp of questions. RetSam went in there and patiently supplied me with answers. Then I noticed many of my questions were also being asked by others so I repurposed the map as a Help resource.To view (or edit, if you so desire) the map go to http://www.mindmeister.com/113407876Some folks recommended other diagramming/.......

Title: Re: Add a New Channel to CMC11
Preview: Hi ilyse,I am sorry. We are only harvesting personal blog's feed. So your Ning feed will have to be held.There can be a lot of discussions ( or chit chats ) happen inside a Channel, which is great. And bringing in all those conversations in here might not be a great idea. I suppose that you can write some blog posts to summarize and reflect on the activities and experiences in the Channels. ....
