THE MOOC MODEL FOR DIGITAL PRACTICE: Siemens, Cormier, et alia - http://www.elearnspace.org/Article...
What is a MOOC? An online phenomenon gathering momentum over the past two years or so, a MOOC integrates the connectivity of social networking, the facilitation of an acknowledged expert in a field of study, and a collection of freely accessible online resources. Perhaps most importantly, however, a MOOC builds on the active engagement of several hundred to several thousand “students” who self-organize their participation according to learning goals, prior knowledge and skills, and common interests. Although it may share in some of the conventions of an ordinary course, such as a predefined timeline and weekly topics for consideration, a MOOC generally carries no fees, no prerequisites other than Internet access and interest, no predefined expectations for participation, and no formal accreditation. - Jay Cross

Professor Leaves a MOOC in Mid-Course in Dispute Over Teaching - Wired Campus - The Chronicle of Higher Education - http://chronicle.com/blogs...
Professor Leaves a MOOC in Mid-Course in Dispute Over Teaching February 18, 2013, 4:56 am By Steve Kolowich Students regularly drop out of massive open online courses before they come to term. For a professor to drop out is less common. But that is what happened on Saturday in “Microeconomics for Managers,” a MOOC offered by the University of California at Irvine through Coursera. Richard A. McKenzie, an emeritus professor of enterprise and society at the university’s business school, sent a note to his students announcing that he would no longer be teaching the course, which was about to enter its fifth week. “Because of disagreements over how to best conduct this course, I’ve agreed to disengage from it, with regret,” Mr. McKenzie wrote. Mr. McKenzie’s departure marks the second debacle for Coursera this month. Another of the company’s courses, “Fundamentals of Online Education,” was suspended indefinitely after technical and design issues made it too dysfunctional to continue. That... - Jay Cross

Georgia Tech and Coursera Try to Recover From MOOC Stumble - Wired Campus - The Chronicle of Higher Education - http://chronicle.com/blogs...
Georgia Tech and Coursera Try to Recover From MOOC Stumble February 4, 2013, 3:49 pm By Steve Kolowich When Fatimah Wirth decided to teach a massive open online course about how to run a virtual classroom successfully, she did not expect it to turn into a case study for the opposite. But after a series of design flaws and technical glitches turned Ms. Wirth’s MOOC, “Fundamentals of Online Education: Planning and Application,” into an Internet punch line, the instructional designer and her colleagues at the Georgia Institute of Technology decided on Saturday to suspend the course. The course got off to a bad start - Jay Cross

WP Engine Support Garage » Disallowed Plugins - http://support.wpengine.com/disallo...
With over 16k plugins (currently) in the WordPress plugin repository, we only (at this time) forbid a few dozen. Those are pretty good odds that if you want to use a plugin on our infrastructure, you should feel free to use it! It’s your blog after all. But what about these disallowed plugins (AKA blacklisted)? Most of them, honestly, fall into a couple “classes” of plugins and we ban them because they collide with our necessary solutions that we put in place as part of our service offerings. - Jay Cross

Nobody Likes a Slow Website We built this Full Page Test tool to help you analyze the load speed of your websites and learn how to make them faster. It lets you identify what about a web page is fast, slow, too big, what best practices you’re not following, and so on. We have tried to make it useful both to experts and novices alike. In short, we wanted it to be a free, easy-to-use tool to help webmasters and web developers everywhere optimize the performance of their websites. - Jay Cross
