What I expect from #MobiMOOC as organizer and guide on the side

A couple of MobiMOOC participants have started blogging on their expectations of MobiMOOC (see a list of the blogposts below this post). And reading all of their thoughts, plans and views, I thought it would be nice to share my hopes for MobiMOOC, as the one initiating the course and partly facilitating it.

What are my expectations of MobiMOOC:
  • To learn in a comfortable setting, with peers that have mutual interests (mLearning)
  • To get a better understanding of all the factors making up 21st century, open learning
  • To have fun within a learner community
  • To create an efficient, informal yet fun learning environment that adapts to the learner demands (within my own capacities and technological options)
  • Getting in touch with wonderful friends and colleagues talking about a common topic
  • Becoming more understanding as I meet diverse people
  • And … chaos, lots of chaos especially me trying to keep up with all the discussions, all the good ideas, keeping all locations up and running...
