Manchester, Moocs and Media

Just getting started on preparing my course Manchester: Music, Media and Cultural Identity. This year it’s going on as a Mooc, and just getting the paperwork organised to put it on Canvas Network.

It used to be that you organise the course, write it then see what staff are needed. The difference now is that I need to organise copyright, methods of delivery, video content, OER materials, staffing, different assignments and the possibility of up to 2000 students. I’m hoping it gives me more than I give it.

Also, the development of an app for it to organise self-directed field trips, more about this in later posts…
