n.paradoxa’s MOOC (mass open online course) on contemporary art (post-1970) and feminism is now open
The new wordpress site is:- http://nparadoxa.com
n.paradoxa’s MOOC is free and users just have to register their email to join it. Users can join anytime and continue at their own pace.
There are 10 lessons. In addition to the lessons, there are open forums for people to respond to the lessons and post their own ideas for discussion.
The model for the MOOC is connectivist. femtechnet describe this model of learning as a DOCC (rather than a MOOC) because the documents link to many resources online and the lessons are designed to be read anytime at the user’s own pace. (A DOCC= Distributed Open Collaborative Course – a feminist retooling of the popular genre of networked learning called MOOCs).
The MOOC uses many resources from the internet, among them those gathered for n.paradoxa: international feminist art journal‘s website at http://www.ktpress.co.uk.
The MOOC was written by the Katy Deepwell, editor of n.paradoxa: international feminist art journal. It is published independently by KT press and was supported by a grant from Innovate UK.
The print journal, n.paradoxa, is separate from this new MOOC.
Vol. 39 (Jan 2017) on Organising/Organisations is the latest edition.
