Seeing the development opportunity at #altc ...

Quick blog article in the space between sessions at ALT-C ... for the uninitiated that read this blog feed around the world. ALT-C is the academic conference of the UK based Association of Learning Technologies which takes place annually in the UK.

While there are many MOOC's, short courses and curated content - has anybody considered how we may create a MOOC equivalent via social media. I make no secret of the fact that I have been discussing at this conference and previously last year at Warwick the idea of teaching by twitter as a way of enhancing content. What about using twitter (or facebook/linkedin), a smattering of automation and plenty of human intervention to create a short course.

Lets stop and think - what would it be about? How long should it last? What depth should it take? Equally important, which is the best platform and could we explore some of the technologies and interventions described in this mornings keynote by @jonathan_worth.

Assuming that we could easily create this opportunity. What are your thoughts?
