This Week's Activity

This week we'll be talking to Tony Hirst from the Open University. I've been following Tony's work with the cloud and cloud-based data for a number of years now. Be prepared for fascinating! View the activity and add it to your calendar, and join us in the Activity Centre at noon (Eastern) Wednesday.


We have two tasks to choose from for this week:
  1. Subscribe to the course feeds - using the feed reader of your choice (here's a selection) use the course OPML file (here it is) to subscribe to the course feeds. To get a badge you'll need to show you've done this, maybe by writing a blog post).
  2. Create a task - using a blog or some other sort of online application, create a task for participants in this course. You can do this any time through to the end of the course, so be sure to specify which course module it applies to (if you are not providing a feed to be harvested, you can email the url to me (I'll be setting up a 'task submission form' soon).

Course Newsletter RSS

A course RSS feed is now available. Now you don't need to read the newsletter or even visit the website - you can take this course from the comfort of your own feed reader, WordPress, gRSShopper application, or whatever. Here it is: https://el30.mooc.ca/course_newsletter.xml
