HadaLitim

9/24/2014 20:03

@SueAnnan I just finished an online course with IH and not so many familiar 'faces' there. Why would you say that was? #ELTchat

SueAnnan

9/24/2014 20:03

I suppose its great that some of us are happy to do CPD- but why cant we interest fresh blood in doing the same? #ELTchat

@MarjorieRosenbe Hi Marjorie! How to engage more colleagues on Moodles & MOOCs & general CPD #ELTchat

SueAnnan

9/24/2014 20:05

@MarjorieRosenbe Hi Marj. Why do we see the usual suspects when we do online things and not interest new peeps #ELTchat

9/24/2014 20:07

@Hada could it be because the IH ones are expensive? #ELTchat

MarjorieRosenbe

9/24/2014 20:07

Not sure always same people. Get wide variety for iatefl webinars. #eltchat

HadaLitim

9/24/2014 20:07

Could it have to do with learning style? #ELTchat

Marisa_C

9/24/2014 20:07

So why do people register and give up - first question #ELTchat

klgree

9/24/2014 20:07

Hi all, thank you for the warm welcome. The most frequent question I'm asked when encouraging CPD is "What's the benefit for me?"#eltchat

HadaLitim

9/24/2014 20:08

@SueAnnan @Hada Yes, could be. And more involved too. Longer? #ELTchat

ChristineMulla

Hi all. First #eltchat of the season for me. May have to cut it short, Master's is taking over! Great to be here and great topic.

@SueAnnan @Marisa_C A bit I think, also think so busy stm forget. #ELTchat

@Marisa_C @klgree Or money = commitment #ELTchat

MarjorieRosenbe

9/24/2014 20:09

@HadaLitim good question. Not sure which style isxattracted to online courses. #eltchat maybe feel too impersonal for some learners?

klgree

9/24/2014 20:09

@Marisa_C Money and/or certificates. #eltchat

ChristineMulla

9/24/2014 20:09

@Marisa_C @klgree Or recognition or sth for CV or free stuff? #ELTchat

HadaLitim

@MarjorieRosenbe I don't think it's totally that but I feel there may be a link there #ELTchat

@SueAnnan Yes, I agree! It's not always a winning argument, but I offer it. #eltchat

SueAnnan

9/24/2014 20:10

Perhaps there is a bit of 'WEbinar Fatigue@ #ELTchat

Marisa_C

9/24/2014 20:10

Much fuss made on FB today by someone who attended a MOOC and was displaying a Certificate of Completion on their profile - #ELTchat

MarjorieRosenbe

9/24/2014 20:11

Not sure why I haven't taken part in one. Felt too much like another commitment & I have enough of those. #eltchat

@klgree its fantastic for keeping up to date and challenging my methods of teaching, I'd be lost without Twitter chats. Great CPD. #ELTchat

@SueAnnan And it's not sth an employer wld look well upon, I think. That's 4 @LinkedIn & interview #ELTchat

9/24/2014 20:14

@KateLloyd05 @Marisa_C good point about choice. How do you decide if it is useful or not? Maybe people sign up for wrong course #ELTchat

@Shaunwilden @KateLloyd05 @Marisa_C @SueAnnan Dig'em out, please #ELTchat

edchatirl

9/24/2014 20:14

@Marisa_C  it's because it's a competitive environment when trying to get work. Self promotion can help get a job. E.g. LinkedIn #eltchat

KateLloyd05

9/24/2014 20:15

@Shaunwilden @Marisa_C @SueAnnan yeah, what's the overarching message? #ELTchat

ChristineMulla

9/24/2014 20:15

@HadaLitim @Marisa_C @klgree In Ireland, most definitely. Really hard to get people engaged. Mostly Irish Ts abroad at mo it seems. #ELTchat

9/24/2014 20:15

@KateLloyd05 @muranava Is it the same? #ELTchat

Marisa_C

9/24/2014 20:15

@josipa74 @MarjorieRosenbe F2F certainly ideal but not necessary. Good OL design includes sync session with monitored disc board. #eltchat

josipa74

9/24/2014 20:57

@Marisa_C @Ven_VVE I would pay for a MOOC if it was really good! And easy to pay - one click/ paypal/ low cost. Price elasticity!  #ELTchat

Marisa_C

9/24/2014 20:57

Personally I believe that a lot of ppl who start MOOCs or Moodle courses do not have the habit of organising own learning #ELTchat

@josipa74 @HadaLitim @Ven_VVE @Marisa_C I think a low cost would work the same way as free i.e. not give motivation #ELTchat
