Don’t be Spooked by the MOOC – Handout 3: Talking about the new ALNE qualifications


say mooc

At some stage in my workshop next week I’d like to give people a chance to talk about the similarities and differences between the old and new versions of the ALNE qualifications. Or at least, I’d like just a chance to talk about how the new versions of the two qualifications that interest me might come together.

This relates to the MOOC riff that I’m starting with because I’m nearly 100% certain that delivery and assessment are going to be mainly online.

So the content below is similar to what I’ve already blogged, but I’m going to cut this down as a handout for the talk. Again, I’m pasting in below from the draft NZQA documents which are now out for consultation:

Questions to think about when you’re reading the info below:
