Week 1 MOOC I
Week 1 Overview
Please start by taking our little survey entitled
"What is your Name - What is your Quest?"
(Popular culture reference here).
Please use it to help introduce yourself in the forum, your interest in games-based learning and what you hope to get out of this MOOC. You can also take a look at your guild officers (MOOC facilitators.)
After that please take a look at the reading and resources - skim the material to get a basic understanding; then pick what you find interesting, intriguing or contentious to look at further. Then please tell us what you think and what you'd like to discuss further. Post in the forum or write it up on your own blog and post in discussions.
