Spinning it up again for a mOOC on digital skills

I’m dusting off this Littoraly blog to participate in OERu’s “Digital literacies for online learning” (#LiDA101). I’m hoping to get some insights about digital literacy and digital fluency. Are these just different levels or different in kind? I’m actually interested in digital literacies beyond online learning, but on the other hand learning is lifewide, so the TLA watchword is not ABC but ABL: Always. Be. Learning.

This blog was moved from WordPress.com to Reclaim Hosting – those folks were very helpful in setting me up. Then it languished, I’m afraid. The look of the blog is quite similar to what I originally set up on WordPress.com.

I’m hoping that this course will help me fire up my enthusiasm again for exploring thoughts online and “learning out loud.”

  1. Hi Don,

    Great to see you hosting your blog on your own domain. This of itself is a significant digital competency we should be developing for educators (and citizens).

    You blog has been syndicated in the course feed – so that’s all working well.

    This first micro-course (LiDA101) aims to familiarize participants with “learning on the Internet” rather than learning via a single application like an LMS. The remaining micro-courses (LiDA102, LiDA103 & LiDA104) delve deeper into digital fluencies.

    Later in the mix – I’d be keen to compare notes on your thoughts around badging in this space. More later.

    Have a great weekend!

    • Thanks Wayne, the Domain of One’s Own (DoOO) thing is a great model and the Reclaim people made it pretty easy.. would love to explore open range badging with you!

  2. Hi I am just starting on the same course Р#lida101. Looking at other people’s blogs before I set up my own on WordPress. Are you still on the course?
