Hello Marvin Weinbaum here, I'm the Dean of Golden Gate University's online learning division - CyberCampus. I know very little about online gaming - but that's my Quest, that's why I'm here! I look forward to learning, and am enjoying the first weeks' materials.

(more answers: Blue & An African or a European swallow?)



Glad to see you and I like that avatar, it seems like the future really is in online learning, you don't need to know about online gaming, but everything you ever wanted to know about it should be on this MOOC, it is amazing, if I do say so myself since it is my home college, but you might even like going back to the MOOC I and the MOOC II (last summer and fall) just to see what we were doing in the "old days." Technology moves so fast sometimes I feel like the Red Queen I found this interesting little blog about the syndrome. What do you think? The Red Queen Syndrome

Red Queen indeed! That is definitely what it feels like sometimes. Thank you for the link to that grasshopper - I may need to pass it along to some colleagues.

Greetings all. I'm a Course Designer and LMS Admin in my day job and like to play games in my off time. That includes sports, board games and video games.

What's my quest? That's a good question. I started with GamesMOOC I, but got busy and fizzled out. So, I figured I would try it again. Expect me to be a lurker most of the time though. I figure it's a more realistic expectation for myself. That being said, hopefully, I'll get in more this time around.



Don't feel bad about that fizz out. I started following/participating in a MOOC during winter break and just got too busy. That happens. Lurkers are good! I also us games in my off time. Welcome to the MOOC. Maybe you can also be part of the one in the summer.

Hi guildmembers

Thank you for letting me into your guild. I’m joining this MOOC because I am interested in combining my interest in games with my vocation in leadership studies. I work with upper division undergraduates and graduate students and already try to use immersive experiential education.
I like to goof around with geocaches and I have tried to write a “cart” for Whereigo http://www.wherigo.com using their scripting language and have looked into Earwigo as well. I am very interested in doing more with this. If you are not familiar with Whereigo, it is a way of using a hand held GPS to write stories, challenges or adventures. When you enter a particular area, text or images may come up on your GPS adding information (real or imaginary) to the setting you are in. It’s buggy and undersupported, but it’s a fun idea.
I don’t do much online gaming, though back in the 90’s I did spend quite a bit of time on MUD’s. I believe that the temptation is too great for me to resist and I would have all of my free time sucked away. I do, however, play lots of console games solo or with my kids.
I don’t have a clear picture of what I am hoping to come away with after this course. I sense opportunities and I’m just keeping an open mind. I don't tweet, but I FB.


Welcome and I can actually lose time too (sucked in) in games. Now if we can only use that interest to treally teach. I like the idea of Earwigo. Open mind is good. Welcome to the MOOC!
