EDCMOOC and My Digital Artifact

As we entered the fifth and last week of the University of Edinburgh’s Coursera MOOC – E-Learning and Digital Cultures, our assignment was to create a digital artifact for this learning experience.  I chose to explore Scoop.It as a way of curating resources from this course, and then to use Camtasia to record a short video that would add my face and voice to the Scoop.It links that I curated.  Nothing earth shattering in my comments, but what I was really about was experimenting with the mix of video, audio, and linked images in a package that could be embedded into a blog – this blog.

So, with no further adieu, here is my artifact for #EDCMOOC:

… and to link to the Scoop.It directly, go to http://www.scoop.it/t/my-edcmooc-resources.

I got this idea from one of my students, who used Scoop.It to curate resources aligned with David Weinberger’s book TO BIG TO KNOW – http://www.scoop.it/t/too-big-to-know

  1. Super artefact Britt! I like the way you have discussed the pulling together of content and resources, and Scoop.It is a nice way of doing this. I enjoyed how you reviewed the course whilst also commenting on your blog, and Scoop.It itself as a way of archiving your own journey. There is an interesting relationship, I think, between these artefacts themselves, and that produced when you added the video and audio to guide the viewer through them. It gets me thinking about the extent to which these web serves ‘curate’ and structure the posts and information that you add to them, compared to a synchronous discussion about, or guide through them.

    Glad you got a lot out of the course, your contributions were certainly valuable to myself and I’m sure to others.

    All the best

  2. It was nice to see and hear you as you shared your artifact with me! I have heard that the course will run again later in the year. Perhaps members of our VCE community will be able to participate in the next one.

    Your thoughts about seeking alternative viewpoints before coming to a conclusion are a very important reminder to consider reflection before opinion. So many of the individuals that I read about have a true distaste for Carr that may bias readers without time for true consideration.

    It was nice that Bud could “lurk” in on the GHOs. I’ve thorough enjoyed the time that I’ve spent chatting with my quadblog about the MOOC. So many have such wonderful things to say about their experience. In many ways, it resembled a religious revival!

    Thanks for the inspiration!
