Students that have registered to take the OpenEdMOOC will be given the opportunity to complete various assignments. Officially submitted assignments will go through a grading process. However, all course participants are welcome to add their worker to the course Learner Activity Hub. To have your work added, it first must be shared in a public blog. Then fill out the form below to have your blog added to the Learner Activity Hub. You can use either a blog dedicated solely to this course, or use an existing blog and create either a category or tag with the name “OpenEdMOOC” (you will need to have at least one blog post using that tag or category before filling out this form). Please note that the “tag” feature of a blogging website is different than using a hashtag in the post body or title.
There is now a Guide to Creating or Using a Blog for the Learner Hub now – please read before filling out the form below: http://linkresearchlab.org/openedmooc/instructions/
Some things to keep in mind:
- Typically, WordPress blogs work fine, but Blogger websites run into more troubles. Blogger websites use “labels” as “tags.”
- The theme that we are using requires a category image for each blog. We will use your avatar from either your blog or Twitter. If you have a preference – or even would rather use another image that is somewhere else online – please let us know in the “Comments or Concerns” field below. At this time, the plugin we use (FeedWordPress) does not support Featured Images per post, so we can’t pull that into the hub.
- This is not an automated process. OpenEdMOOC staff will have to manually add your blog to the hub, which will mean there will be a delay between when you fill out this form and when your blog appears in the hub (if there are no errors).
- Individual posts have to be added to the hub, so there could be a delay of up to one business day before your post is added. If you update older posts, those will have to be re-added as well.
- Content that is older than the start date of the course, or that do not relate to course work (like resumes looking for work), will not be pulled into the hub.
