The OERu is offering a mOOC (micro Open Online Course), although I see it as more of a ‘Connected Course‘, and cringe a little at being associated with MOOCs as envisioned by the likes of EdX, Coursera, and the like.
The course, linked above, is called Digital Skills for Collaborative OER Development and you too can register and take the course for free! Alternately, you can hitch yourself to the social media tag #DS4OER on Twitter, Google+, or wikieducator and just follow the flow.
My first task for the course is to provide a declaration of my intent to participate. That declaration is to include an image, so, in the spirit of two birds with one stone…
I’m looking forward to this course as I am acutely interested in designing open courses, and specifically doing so in WordPress. You can see the course that I have recently developed at the TRU WP course site. Also, having recently completed my M.Ed., I’m interested in connecting more deeply with the OER community as I consider options for future study.
Feel free to explore my site, which like a good blog, is forever in beta.
