“People are just as wonderful as sunsets if you let them be. When I look at a sunset, I don't find myself saying, "Soften the orange a bit on the right hand corner." I don't try to control a sunset. I watch with awe as it unfolds.” (Carl Rogers)

MOOC (Mobile Learning)

Uh? Minnie the Mooch? Nope: MOOC is a 'Massive Open Online Course' and Wikipedia tells me that it is "an educational online event with an agenda or a schedule, facilitated around a subject or topic. Students are invited to take an active role in the course in forming an active learning network" and that "A student or participant in a MOOC has to create a Personal Learning Network (PLN) and has to create an online presence in a blog or a website and has to stay connected."

Why am I telling you this? Because a new MOOC has been opened up - if you're interested in what's going on with Mobile Learning, then this might well be the place for you. Have a look round the wiki that houses the course and if you decide to join up via the Google Group, I'll see you online (because I just joined): mobiMOOC

Here's a video to explain it...







However, if you're not convinced, don't have the time or just don't care, here's Cab Calloway with Minnie the Moocher...
