Why I didn't sign up for #oldsmooc

xxx I would like to have signed up for the OU's learning design MOOC, but I have a list of reasons why I didn't:
  • I'm trying to be sensible about the MOOCs I register for. Come next week I'll be participating in three and another one would be too much. Way too much.
  • 10th January to 13th March 2013 is very bad timing for me, my busiest time of year. I couldn't commit to anything that long and that structured (3-10 hours a week or 10 weeks) as I know I would not have any chance of actively participating in it.
  • I've tried to love learning design, really I have. But it just doesn't float my boat. I prefer teaching to designing teaching. Before you comment on that, it means I'm an action research kinda guy.
  • Cloudworks. I'm not resident there and I don't find it attractive. You may well feel differently but I don't have the time for another destination at present. If it ran in Google+ I wouldn't be able to stay away.

So y'all have fun now and let me know how it goes.


  1. You dont know what youre missing!

  2. See the intro (15 min) maybe that will change your mind?

    As for cloudworks, we wrapped it up in a google site for your delectation

  3. And it is growing out including into Google+
