This community has long been inactive!

Maybe we could do with some more experiments.

I will be posting here frequently. You are welcome to check things out!

Hi,
my name is Laura Vilardo, and I am a student of interaction and product design at the University of San Marino. 
The reason I am writing you is that I am currently conducting a research project aimed at investigating the user experience of MOOC, to fulfill the requirements for my graduation. 
To this aim I have prepared a brief online questionnaire that I am now kindly asking you to fill in. The survey is completely anonymous, and filling it in should not take you more than 5-10 minutes. In the survey I cover several topics, from the motivations for taking a MOOC to the issues faced in taking it. 
By participating in this research, you will help me understand better this new and fascinating world, identify common issues and reasons for failures in completing courses. I strongly believe, in fact, that in order to be able to design better courses, nothing can be more valuable than learning from experiences of real users. 
I hope you will be able to participate in the survey, and I thank you in advance for your kind support. 
Please click on the following link to go to the questionnaire: http://goo.gl/forms/U6Z3QFMPI0
Kindest regards,
Laura

+Fabio Krauss Stabel  : I find Concept Maps interesting. Could you describe how you use them and when we should use them?

Since we are talking about learning fast, my aim is to make this relevant to learning and doing things based on learning fast.

I do not think that making a concept map is possible in the beginning - unlike a mind map that captures just your consciousness and allows you to go meta.

So far along, we have had pretty good discussions on concept maps, mind maps and revision.

I guess we should share some pictures of our sketches as examples for the rest of the community. It's much of a boost if we know that others in the community are trying stuff out.

As we ourselves learn more from MOOCs, I'll try and keep getting examples from around the community. It's good motivation.

The Udacity CS101 Notes have been ported on to G Doc.

The simplest use of such a document is to use it within Hangouts AND to use it for taking custom notes using the Comments Option.

#Important - One needs to use the G Doc for a while to KNOW why it is so flexible and How it can help us in Learning Fast.
