The MOOC SA Project

The aim of Massive Open Online College South Africa is to increase the sharing of knowledge and promote (free) learning through massive open online courses. I place free in brackets because the nature of freeness has conditions, that is the site user will need to have some form of internet access and a device to access it. As the world taps into the MOOC phenomena, I hope to receive contributions from academics and free lance experts in the form of short and/or long online courses, that can be accessed for free by willing learners or knowledge seekers.

Educastor Podcasting Project

The aim of the Educastor: Podcasting 4 Open Learning Project is to increase the sharing of knowledge and promote (free) learning through podcasts donated by intellectuals from South Africa and around the world . I place free in brackets because the nature of freeness has conditions, that is the site user will need to have some form of internet access and a device to access it. In this digital age, podcast are useful in that they exist on ubiquitous platforms thus allowing learning to occur anywhere and at any time. Podcasts assist in knowledge retention in that they can be accessed and repeated at will by learners or knowledge seekers. For those making use of the flipped classroom, you will find this project to be extremely useful to you classroom structure.

ePeer Assisted Learning (ePal) Club

The aim of the ePal Club Project is to increase the sharing of knowledge and promote (free) learning through a peer assisted learning approach. I place free in brackets because the nature of freeness has conditions, that is the site user will need to have some form of internet access and a device to access it. ePal site connects students form all over the world and allows them to assist each other in either homework questions or on a “need to know” basis. In this digital age, we are all connected and it is time for us to use our connectednees to our advantage. Experts in subject areas can also use the ePal platform to assist learners in situations where peers fail  to assist each other. Join the Pal club and become an ePal and start assisting your fellow ePals. There is no better way of learning than through teaching others and reflecting on responses and criticism .
