A Corporate Mini-MOOC on Digital Literacy Skills…An Idea Growing in My Head


I really like this idea of Helen’s, as a lot of you know I struggle with how to utilise 3rd party mooc’s as part of a corporate learning stratagey, however in concept of inhouse style mooc’s I think is a good one.

For a while now, I’ve been teasing out an idea in my mind about rolling out a mini-MOOC in our organisation. After reading Ignatia de Waard’s eBook MOOC Yourself , watching the Google Hangout with Jay Cross and Dave Cormier and completing various MOOCs,  I thought that it was high time to start applying this in the corporate context.

For those who have been reading my blog, you may have noticed my fascination for the MOOC but in particularly, eagerly awaiting if any Australian corporate has created their own for their staff and/or customers.

I want our organisation to be the first – but here’s the rub.  Not an xMOOC but a cMOOCI want the experience to be transformative.  

Read on, all will be revealed.

The thought has been playing in my head for months now.  My first experience of an xMOOC was Professor Kevin WerbachGamification Course through Coursera.
