If you’ve ever actually taught an online course, the thought of teaching a MOOC sounds like an absolutely crazy idea. It’s hard to get past the idea that you might be multiplying all your “online student” headaches by a factor of 100 or 1000. Well, those were my first thoughts about it too. However, what I learned was that teaching a MOOC has been the purest and most fun form of teaching and learning that I’ve ever done. Teaching a MOOC is a complete paradigm shift from traditional education in terms of the design, the assessment requirements, and the diversity of students.

As the manager of courses for Canvas Network, we’ve learned a lot about how to design a good online course for students who struggle with English, span all the time zones in the world, and have very different learning goals. In this talk I will share my own teaching experiences and surprises and give you an in-depth tour of the Social Media course on Canvas Network (the course that I teach.) This course is publicly available, so you can play along and explore as I talk about the learning design decisions made in this course.

Efforts to instill students' sense of personal ownership and build a strong community in the online course experience may sometimes fall short due to the staid communicative prompts doled out by the teacher on the discussion board.

The cartoons—freely available for download and use through one-click download as well as live updates in the LMS through RSS technology—are accompanied with a set of questions to stimulate peer discussion. This OER resource, newly announced in 2012, is the cartoon Online U.
