It’s been a year and I miss blogging. Writing takes much more time and energy than it used to, but I’m still determined to publish on my site again. I’m coming to terms with the fact that I need to start walking before I run, as is evident since I’m producing way too many unfinished posts. 🙃 They just always become too large and complicated for me to finish and publish. I’d like to tackle those post again, but for now I need to start small.
I’m doing great! Especially all things considered. We can have virtual coffee if you want to talk more.
I’ve been working on ways faculty can host MOOC-like courses per some grant requirements. We are a Canvas school so I’m approaching this challenge from that point of view. From 6 possible approaches, I’ve narrowed down 3 feasible options that fit our situation:
Canvas Catalog – EX: Baylor.catalog.instructure.com Canvas Network Courses – canvas.net Open Enrollment OU Canvas Course
- Host Moodle through OU Create – Likely too much work.
- Develop a course Website through OU Create – Also likely a lot of work, but a solid fallback option.
- Use “Free for Teachers” version of Canvas. – RECOMMENDED.
I have more notes and thoughts on this if you are interested. Would love to have virtual coffee!
I’ve also been thinking a lot about the below twitter conversation from my friend John and future projects related to goblin.education:
@sarahlw6 @KeeganSLW What if we had groups at multiple colleges each playing GOBLIN as fac dev at the same time this summer? Each group is playing a different but interrelated story. Only through cooperation across schools can the overall campaign be successful.
