An experimental MOOC on learning about the non-technical aspects of photography
“Message of the Image” is an experimental MOOC offered by eVeltio, running simultaneously on Facebook as well as our CPW Site. The purpose of this initiative is to describe an approach to implementing a MOOC and evaluating Facebook as a potential platform for delivering a MOOC, given its popularity. Since connectivism forms the mainstay of a MOOC, we are evaluating how the popularity of Facebok may be used as an advantage and identify if it promotes connectivism.
On the CPW site, we are understanding how a simple blogging platform (WordPress & BuddyPress) can be used by organisations to deliver a MOOC without making large investments in infrastructure as well as understanding the reaction of participants on the efficacy of the model.
