Distributed cognition at MOOC ecosystems

February 10, 2014

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.
