  1. Chalkstar to Rockstar #05 – ds106 Is The 5th Dimension of Teaching and Learning

    chalkstarIn this podcast ds106 open participant Brian Bennett interviews Jim Groom and Alan Levine: Chalkstar to Rockstar #05
    Have you ever taken an online course and wondered if you were really doing work that was worth the effort? How much did you interact with other people in your class? Did you feel alone? Unfortunately, that’s how a lot of online courses tend to be. But not this one. Meet Jim Groom and Alan Levine, two of the minds behind what is now known simply as ds106. In this episode, I talk with Alan and Jim about how ds106 is different from anything you’ve ever heard about. We’ve got open learning platforms, criticisms of MOOCs, and shameless self promotion. You won’t be disappointed.
