Day 1 #BoxTag SOOC

Today is the first day of the small open online course (SOOC), Introduction to Box’Tag.

The course is the outcome of a long journey made by Allan Hahn and Paul Perkins.

This is their welcome to the course.

Adam Brimo from OpenLearning has made it possible for the course to be open and online.

Box’Tag SOOC

IMG_0682I have spent much of today working with Paul Perkins, Allan Hahn and Daniel Perkins.

We have been finalising the content for a new Small Open Online Course (SOOC): An Introduction to Box’Tag.

We are using the OpenLearning platform for the course.

It is a five-week course. We have a sequence of content to present:

  • Start Here (Week 1)
  • Competition (Week 2)
  • Training (Week 3)
  • Planning (Week 4)
  • Technical Training and Physical Preparation (Week 5)

IMG_0647We spent the day in the University of Canberra’s Teaching Commons. By the end of the day we had a substantial part of the content mapped out with week 1 fully uploaded.

There is a Manual for the course and we have allocated a Creative Commons 3.0 license to it.

It is available here Box’Tag Information Guide 2.1 for download.

I have found the opportunity to work on a collaborative project very instructive. Paul and Allan’s energy has inspired me.

There is an Open Access paper about the technological origins of Box’Tag. It is available here.
