Jim Groom, Martha Burtis and Alan LevineHow Do You Assess a Community of
Learning? The Case of DS106
Jim Groom, Martha Burtis and Alan Levine, University of Mary Washington
Tuesday 27th, 13:00-13:30


This presentation will frame the challenges and possibilities of assessing
an open, online community course, using the example of the digital
storytelling course ds106 <> . 


We will focus on how we approach assessment in an open, online course, and
define the strategies we use to frame a community around the desire to share
and learn rather than the often fruitless pursuit of a grade. The idea of
qualitatively assessing thousands of people in a course is absurd, but the
idea of using thousands of people to better help you assess 25-30 students
is nothing short of brilliant ;)













Join  <> 'How Do You Assess a Community of Learning? The
