Post Title: Multi(ple): literacies, tasking, connecting, networking #MOOC/s
By Vanessa, Feed Name: Computers, Language, Writing
Preview: Would that be multimoocquing (or however spelled)? I favor qu for the hard c. Getting ahead of myself (we can do that here), I came across "Reframing Information Literacy as a Metaliteracy" in CMC1l readings for week.

Post Title: New CMC11 MOOC channel: Creative Play in Education
By ilyse kazar, Feed Name: ilyse kazar's blog
Preview: We saw resounding success in using an arts approach to Unlikely Voters' first workshop series, and, thus, one area of study for me in continuing the evolution of uV will be integration of creative play into projects for younger children. (Heck, maybe even for older kids, and why not adults, too!) So I have started a "channel" (a sort of special-interest group that gets together to ....

Post Title: Connectionist approach, Neural Networks and MOOC (CMC11)
By RetSam Zhang, Feed Name: retsamesl
Preview: While MOOCing around CMC11, I encounter the term "connectionist approach". After a few tries on Google, I found the complicated descriptions and some diagrams. But I still didn't understand how it works and how it relates to a MOOC. Luckily I found some videos on Youtube that helped me get the ideas much more easily. Neural networks are by far the most commonly used connectionist ....

Post Title: MOOC Muddle ... cmc11 and beyond
By cyeager, Feed Name: CMC11
Preview: So, my challenge: How do I find the time to also participate in two other MOOCs and still be active here? I have been lurking in and am fascinated with the number of really interesting posts to follow ... into connectivist oblivion. It really takes supreme effort to make the "who to follow", "where to go" and "what to say" decisions. I think I'll continue to lurk for a ....

Title: Re: Introducing Yourself
Preview: My name is Jennifer Pichardo, I am a student at Empire State College and a first time MOOCer! Honestly, I feel nervous and shy about this and have been "lurking" around this week to get an idea of how this works. I have watched and re-watched the informational videos, links, reading materials and posts that fellow MOOCers have posted. Now, I've come to the realization that this is a ....

Preview: Thanks, John.  I would love to learn more about the Popplets ... maybe someone in CMC11 will investigate and post one here.  I did follow some of your chains of thought with eduMOOC ...  I had to drop out after a bit to concentrate my waning energies in development here :-)  I sure have enjoyed your stimulating and thought provoking initiatives! Just watched one of the "....

Title: interculturalism from a home-perspective (if this makes sense)
Preview: Hi Betty,Also, it might be useful to consider interculturalism from a home-perspective when living in a multicultural society. How can we not just respect and accept individuality and difference but also use them to enrich our lives and society. Are there any strategies that can help enable interculturalism? And how can we turn negativity around? As we know we can't change anybody who doesn&....
