“Lovely to see you here on this forum” comments at 4.31.
It is language like this why we did all those IDEL readings on the body in cyberspace, metaphors and location and whatnot. Whilst you say they cannot see you earlier in the video you. At 3.11 you talk about going “there” to the Standford MOOC, yet in physical terms you did not. It is hard to leave our bodies behind. It creeps back in our language and how we think about things. Hence the Stanford staff writing things like “lovely to see you”.

By using a don like jacket and locating the video in a book lined study you give yourself an air of academic authority which, in turn, gives what you are saying legitimacy by proxy. I suspect this is a parody of the way elite universities use their academic authority to give xMOOCs legitimacy in the minds of potential students/users/customers (delete as appropriate according to your mindset).

re – what is my ism
I think paragraph 3 in this post relates here http://ift.tt/1sBS590
working on your own ism is probably best. Although once it is worked out you shouldn’t go around touting it as an answer for students apparently.

Interestingly now that I have read one of the block 2 course readings (http://ift.tt/17Od6Vg) I am seeing additional links to that Stewart’s paper rather than the cybercultures block.
Stewart proposed that all MOOCs had inherent potential to expose people to the digital literacies ethos. Student’s would produce knowledge in a way that was unpredictable and gradually subvert the institutional authority of the teacher. Your work does this in the sense that no one could have predicted you would create a twitter teaser trail that led to a corporate -courtesy-speak laden email that led on to a dreamy, queasy youtube clip. On top of that by choosing to make your artefact inaccessible to some you subvert the conditions of the task to your own needs thereby reducing the hierarchy between teacher and student.

Sorry Dirk, testing for my IFTTT feed but have to say I really enjoyed your video summary of the week. Made me feel that my week was quite dull in comparison. I had thought about trying some video but was a bit scared that I wouldn’t manage in time 🙂
