About the #MMC13
It’s about time to talk about the German
MOOC Maker Course – #MMC13
starting 16th January to 22nd February 2013, thus running for 5 weeks.
The #MMC13 is an open Online course about how to design, implement and conduct an Open course.
The MOOC is designed for those
- considering to apply this teaching method
- wanting to collaboratively evaluate the MOOC experience
- interested in trends in Open Education
Here is a link to the #MMC13 course website. http://howtomooc.org/ The site is in German, but Google translation might help 😉 Hashtags at Twitter and Google+ are either #howtomooc or #mmc13. Even Stephen Downes and Georg Siemens, the forefathers of MOOC’s are involved. You can find a posting about the #MMC13 on Stephen’s blog.
So what’s the idea behind this course?
Dörte Giebel, Monika E. Koenig and Heinz Wittenbring developing right now a course design searching for project partners. The three deliberately decided to conduct that MOOC in German, to strengthen the discussion about MOOCs in the German-speaking area and to display already existing basic approaches and experiments here in Germany. They want to build a platform and network for experts (or those who want to become an expert like me 🙂 to collaborate and support each other.
