CCK08 Research Papers

We – Sui Fai John Mak, Roy Williams and I – have finally completed work on 2 research papers following our participation in CCK08.

  • Blogs and Forums as Communication and Learning Tools in a MOOC
  • The ideals and Reality of Participating in a MOOC

On November 13th we will submit these papers to the Networked Learning Conference Steering Committee and hope that they will accept them for their 2010 conference in Denmark. The last time I went to Denmark I was 22 years old, quite a few decades ago. It would be great to go again!

Although we have not yet submitted our papers, we have been in touch with a member of the Conference Steering Committee who has encouraged us to share our papers with CCK09 before we submit them for the conference. So we have posted them (having first asked George and Stephen if that would be OK) in a variety of places including:

CCK09 Moodle site in Week 4 and General Discussion forums

Nellie’s CCK09 Ning site

John’s CCK08 Ning site

Roy has also invited discussion in his Google Groups Research site and John has invited discussion on his blog.

There is already some discussion about the papers. We will welcome feedback and are ready to amend the papers if necessary before we submit them.  There is still so much to learn!

    Hi Jenny,
    Thanks for this wonderful post.
    I am looking forward to the 2010 Conference in Denmark too.
    Will we be meeting there (f2f or online)?

    Cheers.
    John

    Hi John – if the papers get accepted – I think we will need to go to Denmark. It would be great to meet you and Roy f2f after all this time. Let’s hope the papers get accepted!

    Jenny
