I’ve enrolled in 3 MOOCs this month:

MOODLE MOOC (Australia)

HOW TO TEACH ONLINE (Hawai)

PERSPECTIVES ON DISABILITY (USA)

I have created in this MOOC space 3 new webpages dedicated to each of them, therefore I’ll devote my time to update these webpages during this month.

Stephen Downes newsletter keeps me updated with connectivist MOOCs – http://mooc.ca/

    Hi Ida

    I’m just checking all the blogs enrolled in the How to teach online (Hawaii) as part of my preparation for my presentation on Intro to blogging and noticed you are currently participating in three separate MOOCs and had set up 3 pages for each MOOC.

    If you assign the category for the specific MOOC to a post when you publish it you can set up a custom menu so that posts are automatically feed to a different page and readers just have to click on a link in your top navigation to read the posts for that MOOC.

    This is slightly more advanced blogging skills but it is a good way to automate the process.

    We’ve set up a demo blog to show teachers how they can have all classes on the one class blog. It is the same principle you can use for your three MOOCs. If you go to http://menudemo.edublogs.org/ you’ll see links in the top navigation for each subject. If you click on Geography it takes you to all posts and course work published for the Geography class – http://menudemo.edublogs.org/category/geography/

    Feel free to contact me if you would like to do this on your blog and need help to set it up.

    Thanks
    Sue Waters

      Hi Sue,

      Thanks for your advice. I’ve been trying to create categories and decided to leave just as pages. But I’m watching some tutorials to try to fix it.
      Ida:-)
