A MOOC is a Massive Online Open Course designed based on the learning theory connectivism. Since 2008, there have been a series of these free open online courses offered. This course is informed by their design and implementation.

VW MOOC – Virtual Worlds, Games and Education is divided into 2 parts.

The Prologue will take place on this wordpress site which is functioning as the Virtual Worlds, Games and Education Portal.

The second part, which is the actual MOOC, starts the week after the conference and runs for four weeks.  This portion will be held at P2P U. http://p2pu.org/en/

Program streams from the conference volunteered to continue the discussion started by VWBPE – so for VWMOOC here are the discussions

1) Virtual World Tours and Exploration

2) Machinima

3) World of Warcraft

4) Bleeding Edge

To optimize your experience, we suggest you do the readings, participate in discussions, field trips and the end of the week blog.
