MOOC: Let’s Hoop, Hula Hoop

This week in CEP 811, we began exploring MOOC (Massive Open Online Course). To help us understand how to design these courses and how they could be helpful to our colleagues and students, we explored P2PU (Peer to Peer University). To assist in this understanding, we designed our own MOOC.

In my “Let’s Hoop, Hula Hoop” course my peers will master many hula hooping tricks by creating their own hula hoop dancing video and sharing their progress on twitter with their classmates and providing support and critiques of their classmates work.

****Disclaimer: Yes I have hula hooping on the brain from CEP 810’s Network Learning Project****
