The Social Relevance of Public Writing
Huzza. Writing as a social practice. "In particular, I want to talk about how writing within my classroom has helped foster community amongst the students. In fact, the subtitle of this post could be, "How Wearing a Tie to Class Spurred Community Building."

What’s wrong with (M)OOCs?
Siemens sketches his concerns about MOOCs as they become more popular. MOOCs are a new paradigm and redefine design, practice, responsibility and other aspects. Means that it's going to be hard to fit them into current thinking and current interests.

Nixty Launches With Ambitions to Build Something Huge in eLearning
Two points here: Nixty social couse management software that leverages profs, and "the fact is that most people who can afford to go to college in the US want the experience of actually going to college. Those of us who would love to go back to college but don’t have the time to take off from careers or raising families, could use Nixty, but the problem is what I call the “Rosetta Stone dilemma.” I love Rosetta Stone’s software, and I think the approach to learning languages works – but the bottom line is there’s no short cut to the hours you need to put in to really learn a language fluently and I just don’t have those hours."

De inventione punctus | Bookfuturism
Little bib on changing punctuation conventions, some of the speculation resting too much on ... um ... speculation. Leaves out Crystal and Baron. "All signs suggest punctuation is in flux. In particular, our signs that mark grammatical (and sometimes semantic) distinctions are waning, while those denoting tone and voice are waxing."

VoiceThread - Group conversations around images, documents, and videos
Yet another social media exchange. Similar to a wiki page in that comments and layers are associated with the specific target. Unlike a wiki and more like a blog in that the target itself is not modified but layered. But the layering is interesting. It means that a target can have different sets of commentary and notes: a different story for the same diegesis, different emphases of the same ground ...

WikiResearch / Improving Academic Writing Skills
Thorough research with a diverse group of students. The reach the usual conclusions but wisely emphasize moderation of claims. Representative anecdotes. "Through collaboration and iteration, we were able to significantly increase and improve the effectiveness of our use of wikis in writing-intensive classes. We found that although the wikis were a compelling tool for teaching writing and although students improved their confidence in and ability to write, we could not attribute either of these effects directly to our use of wikis. Instead, wikis facilitated the methods of teaching writing we already practiced, such as multiple drafts, self and peer review, and writing for audiences other than the teacher. We found wikis most useful as a tool for student collaboration and were delighted by the community building effects of this collaboration.
