COOLCast#2 - Sept. 21 1400GMT


an open ended discussion about ‘Collaborative Open Online Learning’.
Wednesday, Sept. 21 1400GMT (global times)
Streamed at
Conversation taking place in Google+ Hangout or maybe the Change MOOC’s Big Blue Button (tbd)

The Change MOOC continues to gain momentum ahead of its first live session (a precious time in the life of MOOC), the CMC MOOC has already  had its first session, and there are discussions happening all over (blogs, Twitter, & Facebook).  I created my own little Change11 interface here, but as always, I find it impossible to do more than sip from a small selection of what comes through the firehose of MOOC and other COOL content.

I look forward to hearing what has grabbed people’s attention during this week’s COOLCast.   These are open-ended discussions and everyone is welcome to join in and bring up any topics related to specific MOOC’s or general ideas about open online learning.   If anyone would like to ‘reserve a spot’ or suggest a topic, please comment below or contact me

We’ll be streaming again at and possibly using the Change MOOC’s Big Blue Button (if not we’ll be using Google+ Hangout like before).

Look forward to connecting soon...
