Event Description

Happy New Year everyone!

If you are receiving this email, you’ve signed up for #etmooc. We’re set to start very soon so this message is meant to serve as a reminder and to help you get oriented to the upcoming events and activities. If you are receiving this message in error, we apologize, and want to let you know that there are unsubscription options found below.

As we develop #etmooc, we will continue to add information to the website found athttp://www.etmooc.org. Keep on eye on it, or subscribe via RSS. If you don’t know what that means, we’ll be covering RSS during orientation week so don’t worry.

We’ve outlined various things we’d like you to do in prepation for #etmooc under the Orientation page found at http://etmooc.org/orientation. This is an important read as the learning environment is a truly networked space, and can feel quite complex and overwhelming at times. #etmooc is intentionally designed to help you better understand these complexities as we collectively explore emerging topics in educational technology & media.

So, as we head into the kickoff for #etmooc, here’s a short list of things that you can be doing:

Read through, and prepare yourself for #etmooc using the http://etmooc.org/orientation page.
Begin to tweet using the #etmooc hashtag. Connect with and support others, share resources, and start discussing some of the upcoming topics (it’s never too early). Many of the #etmooc participants on twitter can be found through this curated list.
If you can make it, be sure to come to one of the ‘T0S1:Welcome & Orientation’ sessions planned in the Orientation Week of #etmooc (see: http://etmooc.org/calendar). These sessions will mark our official kick-off and will present a good opportunity to get to know each other, ask questions, provide input, or receive clarification about the weeks ahead.
If you know of others who would be interested in this opportunity, please do extend an invitation. There’s plenty of time to sign-up, and no limit on registration numbers. The more the merrier! You can point others to the Registration page at: http://etmooc.org/register.

On behalf of the organizers, I want to say that we are tremendously excited to begin this journey. We are doing our best to create an experience where #etmooc is not just a course, but a starting point for a vibrant, energetic, and passionate community that supports its members and advances the wise use and thorough understanding of technology & media in teaching & learning.

Sincerely,

Alec (@courosa)

How employment is related to your coursework examples

When fresh out of college, chances are you have little to no work experience, which means your resume may look incomplete to some extent. To make it worse, questions like "what is your past work experience?" seems to be a common pertinent step in all job interviews. Although you may have…See More

Personalized learning network and social media

Hi All, My name is Shanshan Ma, I'm currently a doctoral student at University of North Texas. Nice to meet you all. This platform looks great, many future events could be found. Thanks for sharing. But a questions crossed my mind, how would you see the impact of social media such as Facebook, Twitter on those personal learning networks? Would you believe that members would actively participant in some discussions on social media other than the discussions here??See More
