Follow these three steps to add your blog to the EDCMOOC News:

1. Find the RSS feed for your blog. 
RSS stands for "Really Simple Syndication", and it is a way of letting other sites (like EDCMOOC News) 'subscribe' to your blog and make a link to new posts that you make. Most blogs will have an RSS feed address. However, what it is depends on what blogging platform you are using. 

Your RSS feed address is usually your blog's web address, with some extra text on the end, for example '/feed' or '/rss'. 

For WordPress add '/feed', like this: http://www.example.wordpress.com/feed
For Blogger add '/feeds/posts/default?alt=rss', like this: http://example.blogspot.com/feeds/posts/default?alt=rss
For Tumblr add '/rss', like this: http://www.example.tumblr.com/rss

2. Add the RSS feed from your blog to this Google spreadsheet. (https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/viewform?formkey=dDFmMWhPbm5TYTc1SDl4QTdEMVVEZlE6MQ#gid=0)

3. Once you've added your RSS feed to the spreadsheet, whenever you want one of your blog posts to appear in the EDCMOOC News, add ‘#edcmooc’ somewhere in the title of the post.

If you are unsure how to get the RSS feed for whatever space you are blogging in, visit the troubleshooting clinic (https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1GLQrt8kMsbIPVLsjlvYru13OviZ7JOmzSpxHnMmfiqM/viewform) and we’ll do our best to help you out.

E-learning and Digital Cultures begins in less than two weeks!  

We’d like to welcome all new participants who may have joined us in the last couple of months.  If you haven’t signed up for the course yet, there is still time:
https://www.coursera.org/course/edc

We’ve been enjoying the pre-course activity, and we encourage you to continue to create new spaces and participate in collaborative projects around the course.  We wanted to highlight a couple of ideas that we found really inspiring.  Firstly, a Google map where participants of E-learning and Digital Cultures can share their location: 
https://maps.google.com/maps/ms?msid=200367259813652747543.0004ce913194a232d30d5&msa=0

We’re also really excited by the activity on Twitter under the #edcmooc hashtag, and recommend keeping an eye on this throughout the course.  It’s a great space for introductions, announcing those first blog posts, and sharing any interesting links and articles.  Participants have also set up a Facebook group, and we hear that some exciting conversations about the course are taking shape. https://www.facebook.com/login.php?next=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.facebook.com%2Fgroups%2Fedcmooc%2F

In this email, we wanted to give you some more details about the course, and suggest some ways that you can make sure you are ready to begin.  The E-learning and Digital Cultures Coursera site will open at midnight GMT on Sunday the 27th of January.  It’s a five week course, and it will officially end on Sunday the 3rd of March; however we welcome participant discussion and contact to continue beyond this date.

E-learning and Digital Cultures is divided into two blocks of content, and a final assessment.  In each two-week block we will consider a key theme emerging from popular and digital culture. First we will look at ‘utopias and dystopias’ and second, we will focus on ‘being human’ in a digital age. Throughout, we will be discussing how these broad themes relate to the ways in which we think about online education.  

In the final week, we will ask you to create a digital artefact that depicts or represents any of the themes you have encountered on the course, and submit it for peer assessment.  By digital artefact, we mean something that is designed to be experienced digitally, on the web.  It should therefore contain a mixture of text, image, sound, video, or links, and be easy to access and view online.  If working with digital media is something you don’t have a lot of experience with, we will recommend software that is suitable for those with any level of technical ability.  Technical prowess will not form part of the assessment criteria; rather we are looking for imaginative and rigorous ways of presenting your academic work digitally.

We think participant blogs will be a really valuable part of the course, and we’d like to bring your posts together each week as part of the course content.  If you’d like your blog to appear in the ‘EDC MOOC News’, please add the RSS feed from your blog to this Google spreadsheet, and remember to include ‘#edcmooc’ in any post you want to be included:
https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/viewform?formkey=dDFmMWhPbm5TYTc1SDl4QTdEMVVEZlE6MQ#gid=0

Getting the RSS feed for your blog is usually very simple, and involves adding some extra text to your blog URL.  Some guidelines for getting the RSS feed from different blog platforms can be found here:

Wordpress: http://en.support.wordpress.com/feeds/ 
Blogger: http://support.google.com/blogger/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=97933
Tumblr: http://www.ehow.com/how_8472950_tumblr-rss-feed-tumblr-profile.html

If you are unsure how to get the RSS feed for whatever space you are blogging in, send a tweet using #edcmooc and we’ll do our best to help you out.

All the best,
The EDC team

I want to tell you -- even though I didn't make it to many of these, seeing you folks live on here made you very real to me. The lectures at the beginning were a great intro, but could have been recorded long ago. But seeing you, all of you together, live on Google made me feel very connected to you and to the course. As did Hamish's responses to a couple of my posts. I don't feel like I was nameless in a faceless course. Thank you!

E-Learning and Digital Cultures opens again on November 4th!

We’re really excited about running the course again, and we’d like to welcome all new participants who may have joined us in the last couple of months.  If you haven’t signed up for the course yet, there is still time: https://www.coursera.org/course/edc

The Coursera site will open on November 4th, and that will be the start of week 1. In the meantime, we’d like to encourage those participating to try out the social media services we’re planning to use during the course.  Opening up some of our scholarly activities to the wider public web is an important part of EDCMOOC, and we hope that you’ll join us in signing up to and using these free services. 

The microblogging service Twitter is a great way to communicate and share resources, and we’re hoping to use it throughout the course for general chat, as well as specific tasks.  You can start now with the hashtag #edcmooc.  Sign up for a free account here: https://twitter.com/ . You’ll notice that there is a lot of activity there already – that’s because people are still using it from the last session of the MOOC. Feel free to dive in and join the conversation.

An important focus on E-Learning and Digital Cultures will be the role of visual and digital media for academic writing and communication.  You’ll be tasked with some exciting activities, both interpreting and creating images, and we’re planning to use the free photo sharing service Flickr.   Sign up for a Flickr account here: http://www.flickr.com/
  
Writing your own blog during the course is also highly recommended.  If you don’t have a blog already, you could try the free services Wordpress (http://wordpress.com/) or Blogger (http://www.blogger.com).  We think your own reflections on the course themes will be a crucial part of the course, and we will integrate them as much as possible.  Check out the EDCMOOC News (http://edcmooc.education.ed.ac.uk/wp/), featuring posts from previous participants.  We’ll be supplying instructions about how to add your own blog soon!    

If you’ve not done so already, we hope you’ll sign up to these services, start your blog, and introduce yourself on twitter before we begin formally in November.  Using the course hashtag with your social media activity will allow everyone participating to find your contributions easily, so please add #edcmooc to your blogs, images and communications.  We’ll be in touch again soon with more details about the course content.   
 
Looking forward to seeing you online soon!

All the best,
The EDCMOOC team

Jeremy Knox's remark about diversity of engagement in a MOOC brought me out of lurking ... we've been coming to terms with this in EVO (the electronic village online) for the past 10 years. A five week workshop which starts out with some 1200 EFL teacher participants, and ends up with around 30 still active at the end of the 5 weeks. YES - the lurkers DO gain a lot from the artifacts which remain available after the course has finished. Expecting people to "follow" the activities as in a traditional course is yet another aspect which requires a change in perspective from the course organisers:-) THANKS for all your work - more productive than you thought.
Amitiés from France

Welcome to E-Learning and Digital Cultures!

Sign up for the course here: https://www.coursera.org/course/edc

We’re really excited about starting the course on January 28th, and wanted to give you an early welcome.  

Our Coursera site is currently being developed, and we’re aiming to open a week or so before the course officially begins.  In the meantime, we’d like to encourage you all to try out the social media services we’re planning to use during the course.  Opening up some of our scholarly activities to the wider public web is an important part of E-Learning and Digital Cultures, and we hope that you’ll join us in signing up to and using these free services. 

The microblogging service Twitter is a great way to communicate and share resources, and we’re hoping to use it throughout the course for general chat, as well as specific tasks.  You can start now with the hashtag #edcmooc .  Sign up for a free account here: https://twitter.com/

An important focus on E-Learning and Digital Cultures will be the role of visuality and multimodality in academic practices.  You’ll be tasked with some exciting activities, both interpreting and creating images, and we’re planning to use the free photo sharing service Flickr.   Sign up for a Flickr account here: http://www.flickr.com/
  
We’ll also be using YouTube (http://www.youtube.com/), and we recommend that you sign up for a YouTube account (click the link top right to create a Google account).  This will allow you to upload your own videos if desired, as well as add your comments to existing videos.  We’re also recommending SynchTube (http://www.synchtube.com/) to engage in synchronous chat whilst watching videos.  It’s free and you don’t need to sign up for an account.

Writing your own blog during the course is also highly recommended.  If you don’t have a blog already, you could try the free services Wordpress (http://wordpress.com/) or Blogger (http://www.blogger.com).  We think your own reflections on the course themes will be a crucial part of the course, and we’re planning to share your posts and integrate them into EDC as much as possible.  

We also recommend Facebook (www.facebook.com) and MeetUp (http://www.meetup.com/Coursera/) for getting together more socially or organising studying groups.   

If you’ve not done so already, we hope you’ll sign up to these services, start your blog, and introduce yourself on twitter before we begin formally in January.  Using the course hashtag with your social media activity will allow everyone participating to find your contributions easily, so please add #edcmooc to your blogs, images and communications.  We’ll also make this welcome email public on our Google Plus page (https://plus.google.com/104505101854214069712/posts), and we’ll be in touch again soon with more details about the course content.   
 
Looking forward to seeing you online soon!

All the best,
The EDC team
