Part2: the facilitators of the free mobile online course

Last week I posted the first post related to a free, open online course on the topic of mobile learning. The course starts to get into shape, and it will be running from 2nd April - 14 May 2011. I am waiting to release the name of the course ... building some kind of surprise (but I did see someone picked it up already).

This is the list of the facilitators and the dates (this can still change a bit, but the subjects stay the same):

First the simple one: Week 1: Saturday 2 April - 8 April 2011: Introduction to mLearning.
Facilitator: I (and I already got help from all the other facilitators to link to some mLearning content, thanks for that!).

The real and wonderful eLearning guru's take over after the first week. Now remember from the earlier post, much of a MOOC is about exchanging notes with peers, and constructing knowledge collaboratively, but you can be sure that with these facilitators you get your hands on great resources and your minds will be challenged by getting all of us in this together.

Week 2: Saturday 9 April – 15 April 2011: Planning an mLearning project;
Facilitator: Judy Brown

Week 3: Saturday 16 April – 22 April 2011: mobile for development (m4D);
Facilitators: Niall Winters and Yishay Mor

Week 4: Saturday 23 – 29 April 2011: Leading edge innovations in mLearning;
Facilitator: David Metcalf

Week 5: Saturday 30 – 6 May 2011: Interaction between mobile learning and a mobile connected society;
Facilitator: John Traxler

Week 6: Saturday 7 – 13 May 2011: mLearning in k12;
Facilitator: waiting confirmation.

So if you are interested, keep your agenda (a bit) free from 2 April - 14 May 2011.
