Last year I had an idea that a number of motivated individuals would be interested in getting together and creating a "Great Big MOOC Book". It is a tentative title and I used it because I thought it would be catchy.

I publicized it a bit, but it didn't really catch on. I am still hoping that we can get enough people together to author some evidence-based and research-based chapters for Massive Online Open Courses (connectivist courses like this one, not courses like Corsera or Udacity - although those may be later chapters).

I have made some chapter suggestions, but if you have more ideas feel free to jot them down, add your name and contact info in chapters you are interested in participating and maybe we can get enough people interested in doing this (and actually doing it!). My thought was that we could have it free online, but if we produce something of good quality we can get it published through some arrangement with Athabasca U.

Have you thought about using LiveBinders? It could be a good way to organize sites and references...and it is in the form of a Big Book so a friendly interface.

I just got an interesting email from Learning Solutions Magazine today with an article on building a mooc using readily available resources.

"In Part 1 of this series, we set up the core of an open, online course by using Google groups (for discussing content) and a course wiki (course resources, syllabus and timing). Part 2 covered how to select and add meaningful social media tools. This time (part 3) , we’ll go through the steps to incorporate all the course locations into a one-page, real-time, Web-based course dashboard"

Direct Link to Learning Solutions article

Also in the same email this article "Google+ Hangouts in Online Education: A Capable, Low-Cost Solution"

Thanks for posting the links :)
Inge and I are in the same research collaboration team so I know that she posts to Learning Solutions. I had submitted an article last month to Bill Brandon for LSM on Being Successful in a MOOC. I haven't heard back yet. :-/
