My virtual ethnography: an IVF blog

For a better view, try clicking on the full screen icon. Methodology I have gained some insight into online ethnography through Hine’s article and I wanted to see what he means by connective ethnography particularly the notion of “getting there” rather than “being there”,  how to allow the subjects to judge what is authentic, and [...]

Stepping out of digital culture…

This is another piece of work, while taking stock of the few weeks into the EDEC course.  I started out unsure what culture was, and then the plethora of images and sounds from edcMooc and edec colleagues on eLearning and Digital Cultures presented each day helped build the picture.  Reading the core materials over the [...]

I am taking this weekend to think about what a digital culture means after starting this course. It is starting to dawn on me that I might find it easier to define the eLearning and Digital Culture by looking at things which are not.

Digital Artefact: The process

When given the task of making a summary of the edcMooc, I was in a little panic mode because it all seemed too ominous. I have to present a multimodal digital artefact along with it.  Both of these are skills which have gone a little rusty. So I started by browsing through the discussion forum, [...]

edcMooc artefact: Intersections

Intersections – the edcMooc community is made up of individuals with different needs and interests.  Here, in edcMOOC, their lives somehow intersect with each other, and create a vibrant community.  How the lines or sticks drop and pile up determine the strength of connectedness, and eventually, if the connections fuse with each other, it becomes [...]
