What are they?
Well, they are the massive open online courses that we can find in the ciber space.
I got an invitation from a friend to participate in a Coursera course. I oppened the link and my mind was blown away with the fact that a free online course was offered, at the Edimburgh University, and the professors (5) called themselves instructors.
I was introduced to concepts like:
- digital culture
- digital natives and digital immigrants
- utopia and dystopia
- digital artefacts
- many more
One firs step is with questions or statements that we can reflect on or discuss, so here are a couple:
- Is technology a tool that drives changes and creates society or is it the other way around?
- How hard could it be to be "human" in a world ruled by technology?
