Facebook: A Virtual Coffeehouse??? (Abdullah SAYKILI), CCK11 - Abdullah's Open Window, Feb 26, 2011
Hi again, I was thinking about what implications a social networking site such as Facebook could have when it is used with classmates in CCK11 MOOC. You know that we have created a Facebook group for CCK11 course and some conversation has been going on this group where everyone is an admin so that no one is superior to anyone, and the number of members is increasing each day. We are currently 121 experts, ameteurs, lurkers, creators, consumers, educators; we are all different people with ... 2011-02-26T21:44:00 [Comment]

Personal Learning Environments (PLE) (Abdullah SAYKILI), CCK11 - Abdullah's Open Window, Feb 26, 2011
I feel terrible because I missed yesterday's session on PLE and PLN. I would like to begin with how I would define PLE. To me PLE is collection of any kind of platform that an individual uses to collect, control, create, share and collaborate resources.  A PLE is also an environment where multiple experts, amateurs, resources and tools are brought together.

FACEBOOK as an LMS??? (Abdullah SAYKILI), CCK11 - Abdullah's Open Window, Feb 18, 2011
Can Facebook be an LMS? I am using FB to supplement my English as a Foreign Language (EFL) classes with my 25 Turkish students giving them a chance to go out to the open world, connect people from all over the world, and practise language skills learned at school which I beleive is an unnatural language learning environment. I need ideas from experts. Does that make FB an LMS? Can FB be used as an LMS? Here is Stephen's blog on Facebook as an LMS: 2011-02-18T18:35:00 [Comment]

First Connection (Abdullah SAYKILI), CCK11 - Abdullah's Open Window, Jan 21, 2011
This was the first time we connected on a live session. This is my second MOOC and sometimes I feel a bit lost about what to follow because there are so many things that people have been sharing about CCK11. Because the course itself is not a centralized one, and all the sources (let's say knowledge) is distributed accross a wide range of environments it's like jumping from one branch of a tree to another. However, I feel that this chaotic nature of this course shows the true ... 2011-01-21T14:27:00 [Comment]
