I truly enjoyed Topic 2 more than that of Topic 1. This is probably because of we are getting used to the course’s system and got to know each other better in the group 6 as well as Alastair Creelman, a good facilitator. I spent much more time for this course than I thought I would be. However, it is getting fun and exciting beside its challenge.
I did not have any experiences at all on offering an online course and this topic gave me a great idea of what I should do with the scenario of Topic 2. I had a great chance to explore on the idea of Open Learning, MOOCs and open and closed tools as well as copy rights. I never knew copy right can be expired and become public domain.
Now, I would like to be more technical in saying a few words on sharing and openness. Openness servers as transition from traditional learning to virtual learning, and is an educational revolution. Nevertheless, before thinking of MOOCs, the institutes (universities and private sectors) should provide legal backgrounds, technical assistance, and all necessary learning tools provided to all employees.
