From TLT Group World Headquarters
Late breaking news on the March 15th session with "the app guys."
Join a collective discussion with Amy Woodgate on what we have learned in the #EDCMOOC today at 2:00 PM ET register here, The "app guys," Stephen Kaufman [and a new 3rd partner because Tim has a conflict] Aaron Carpenter from Ashland University, are back by popular demand (March 15th). Here's how popular the demand is, there are already 250+ people registered. Unfortunately we just learned we will probably not be able to expand our Adobe Room capacity (100 logins) for this event we will give TLT Group members priority.
If your institution has an institutional subscription, everyone affiliated is eligible for a one-year free individual membership, but you must activate that membership online individually.
As you probably know, FridayLive! is offered free to anyone who registers in advance, and the digital recordings of the sessions are routinely made available shortly after the events for free, but only to members of the TLT Group.
Since there is so little time before March 15, we urge that you join as a member right away. If you can't do that, or if you prefer to initiate or renew your institution's annual subscription, we will treat registrants for FridayLive! March 15 as members if you send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org RIGHT AWAY pledging your intention to have your institution subscribe.
If more than 100 members want to login, we'll make sure that any members who are excluded will have access to the digital archive within a few days. Non-members will have to wait for the next Ap Guys
session unless we create some other alternative. As usual, we will make available at no fee fully public copies of the chat text transcript and other info from the session via our blog at tlt.gs/blog and links to URLs via our DIIGO Repository at tlt.gs/diigo..

If you can't walk the walk, is it OK to limp the limp and talk the talk? Or better to do/say nothing?

sMOOChers Debrief with Amy Woodgate
March 8, 2013 2:00-3:00 pm Eastern Time - free to all. register here,
Amy Woodgate, University of Edinburgh MOOC project director, joins "sMOOChers" who participated in THE INTENTIONALLY EXPERIMENTAL #EDCMOOC "eLearning and Digital Cultures," https://www.coursera.org/course/edc. They will discuss their experiences, lessons learned, recommendations, druthers, things to avoid. This is one of six MOOCs being offered by the University of Edinburgh. Edinburgh was offering this "course" both as a MOOC and as a more traditional course simultaneously, so Amy can also compare and contrast the two approaches and how they might fit together. We will also explore ways in which faculty can integrate MOOCs (entirely or by selecting modules) hosted by other colleges and universities in their own undergraduate courses. For the last 15 minutes, participants will be invited to discuss emerging plans for the TLT Group to offer a MOOC-ish experience based on John Sener's recent book "Seven Futures of American Education: Improving Teaching and Learningin a Screen Captured World."

We have been participating in the EDCMOOC, eLearning & Digital Cultures MOOC sponsored by the University of Edinburgh. The MOOC has concluded but the learning continues. I want to share some of the amazing digital artifacts that were created by my VoiceThread friends. If you explore these examples you will see amazing creative examples using different technologies.
