We have just sent away our brand new paper for HCI 2014 conference in Crete this summer.
Promoting distributed cognition at MOOC ecosystems
Kai Pata, Emanuele Bardone
Abstract. The paper proposes describing connectivist MOOCs as a learning ecosystem. We highlight two aspects of distributed cognition epistemic and collective that MOOCs promote and relate these with learning by chance-seeking and learning from ecological enculturation. Finally we outline some design aspects for supporting chance-seeking and learning from an encultured environment in connectivist MOOC ecosystems.
