Finding Flow in #OpenEdMOOC

Whenever I begin a MOOC, it usually takes a few days to find flow – with #OpenEdMOOC, I’m getting there.  A bit of context, I am taking the course for credit (edX), but only enter to make sure I’m meeting course requirements.  I spend most of my time outside of edX because engagement feels more natural.

Here’s my current work flow:

  • Respond to any Twitter notifications related to the course.
  • Refer to static note in Evernote with a clipping of course readings, etc. (An Introduction to Open Education). This allows for easy access since I spend most of my day in Evernote.
  • Check Twitter hashtag feed and respond directly when inspired to do so (try to do this at least once per day). This includes retweets, favoriting, quoting, and replying.
  • Check Twitter hashtag feed of any blog posts that are of interest.
    • Using Evernote, will share selected text from blog posts, leave a remark, and post to Buffer account to schedule future tweet.
  • .Publish to blog any initial ideas based on weekly topics.
  • Enter edX to post any links and contribute to discussions as required.

So far, this is working for me, although still just in week one.  Will see how it goes…

I am curious how others manage work flows for #OpenEdMOOC.
