Change seeks being comfortable

photo:  genesconectados.com



My first movements on #change11 MOOC were modest, not anxious at all (not like in cck09 that on first week I learned about PLE and didn´t sleep till I designed my own).

 Now I´m looking for Spanish speakers. Not because I don´t want to share in English but because I want to explore participating in Spanish too, also sharing with language peers. I´m more intelligent in Spanish. At least, faster.

 Though being slow wasn´t bad at all in other open courses in English I participated (the English version of me is a words creator, and that is very similar to an ideas creator, fun!). Many Spanish speakers joined in a Facebook group in Spanish: #change11ES Come visit if you want: http://www.facebook.com/groups/change11es/

MOOCs tought me that I can be totally creative trying to be confortable. My personal way of learning is the best way.

 Thanks George Siemens, Stephen Downes, Dave Cormier and all participants for this new massive open online freedom game.

Honor code for Stanford online course students

At the end of the enrollment form for the artificial intelligence course, you can read this honor code and you need to accept it to finish the process


Honor Code

All students participating in this course must agree to abide by the following code of conduct:
- I will only register for one account. 
- My answers to graded homework and exam questions will be my own work.
- I will not post or discuss any information related to graded 
homework and exam questions until after the answers have been released by the instructors.
- I will not engage in any other activities that would dishonestly improve my results or improve or hurt the results of other students.

Any violation of the above terms will result in the permanent 
deletion of your account. Cheating will not be tolerated.


Two other things I haven´t experimented yet on MOOC:

  • they desing two tracks: basic and advance (you can switch later if you want) they say the did it that way because of the big amount of enrollments they received. 
  • they will extend a statement of accomplishment signed by both Peter Norvig and Sebastian Thrun upon completion of the course
