Hello and Welcome to the Learning Differences MOOC-Ed!
Unit 1 is now open. To access your course, visit http://www.mooc-ed.org. Click “Login” at the upper right corner of the screen, and log in using the same method you used when you registered. After you’ve logged in, you can access all of your courses from the “My Courses” option in the menu bar. If you’re using a mobile device, these options can be accessed by clicking on the menu in the upper right corner.
The first unit establishes a purpose for this course and challenges you to "design to the edges" in your own context.
Our approach to building these online experiences is to create online environments that are (1) self-directed, (2) peer-supported, (3) job-connected, and (4) bring in multiple voices. So feel empowered to go at your own pace and use what is most useful to you and your role. Each week we will open a new unit but know that the units (and discussions) will remain open if you haven’t had time to finish or would like to continue to engage. Throughout each unit we have built in a variety of perspectives and provide opportunities for you to engage with others, build your professional learning network, and expand your own professional toolkit.Finally, we are on twitter! As you learn, be sure to share using the hashtag #all_learn.
Questions? Technical support for MOOC-Ed courses is available by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you - we will see you in the discussion forums!
