Post Title: Enemies of Creativity
By cyeager, Feed Name: CMC11
Preview: Nike ran an ad campaign some time ago and the tag line became a buzz word .. "just do it". It sounds so simple, so easy ... just do it, whatever "it" may be.Our parents/elders, for the most part, exhorted us to "think before you act", in a well meaning attempt to keep us out of danger. Again, sounds simple, but then, how many of us think beyond opportunities that then pass us by?What does one ....

Title: Enemies of Creativity
Preview: Guess sometime just doing it works out though the slogan suggests a level of mindlessness in practice that would hardly pay off in anything useful. Applied to the purchase of expensive shoes we might want a more complete theory of action that runs like "just pay for the shoes first and THEN do it to your foolish heart's content." Great article on the enemy of creativity. I'm not sure .......

Title: x MOOCs
Preview: The image BIG ED taking on the role of pirates to the fat richness of the MOOC fleet seems odd. Kind of a role reversal don't you think? Imagine their surprise when cannon balls rebound off the rafted herd of air filled cow skins that constitute structure in a MOOC ...

Title: Re: What is a MOOC? And what direction would you like to see it go?
Preview: Thank you, Vanessa, for your thoughtful (as always) response here. I have engaged with several xMOOCs myself. I must admit the first two were a bit of a challenge to get past the first few "modules/weeks" as they seemed to be packaged reruns of classroom fare. They were definitely not my cup o tea and I dropped out completely by the 4th session/module. Next, I tried one of the MIT courses and ....

Title: Re: What is a MOOC? And what direction would you like to see it go?
Preview: Not much discussion of this I notice. This announcement caught my eye when it appeared in the Sept 23 Daily. For some reason, I couldn't stop to comment at the time but then I lost track of it and had to hunt it down, which turned out to be more of a nuisance than expected. And I count myself a fair dab at finding things online. The Announcements list, upper left, takes you to the current ....
