Thank you once again for participating in the E-learning and Digital Cultures MOOC. It was a fantastic experience for us, and we hope you enjoyed being part of the community.

Having spent some time reflecting on this instance of the course, looking again at your inspiring digital artefacts, and digesting your useful feedback, we’ve been thinking some more about the significant role that our teacher bot played in the EDCMOOC. Many of you interacted with our bot on Twitter (@edcmooc), blogged about the experience, or recorded memorable moments, such as these (http://edcmooc.rocks/botty-moments/).

We would like to continue our teacher bot project (http://54.200.176.141/about/) by offering it as a free service to other educators. We want to make the bot available so that other teachers and course teams can easily customise bot responses –making them relevant to their own course content, and have the bot working through their own Twitter accounts and course hashtags. 

This email is about gauging interest from the EDCMOOC community before we begin the service. So, we’d like to know if anyone might be interested in having their own teacher bot; free to use, hosted by us, and fully customisable to your own course needs. The Teacher Bot service isn’t quite ready yet, but let us know if you’d be interested in the near future by emailing edcmooc@gmail.com

Regards
The EDCMOOC Team
OK..so we all know that this run of EDCMOOC is different from the previous runs of the program. And the difference is the Teacher Bot, introduced for the very first time on an experimental basis. T...

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, let us know via Twitter, or the discussion forums when the course starts.

I thought this week's hangout was thought-provocking and quite informative relating to the subjects and videos we saw this past week on the Mooc website. I especially enjoyed the Google article and the video "Gumdrops"

Thanks for signing up to E-learning and Digital Cultures (otherwise known as EDCMOOC). We’re really excited about starting the course on November 3rd 2014, and wanted to give you an early welcome. 

The Coursera site will open on the 3rd, and that will be the start of week 1. 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 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: http://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 two sessions 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

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!
