…of yet another connectivist #MOOC that is
Open Learning 2019 because I have to post to have a feed to complete sign-up. This procedure guarantees that I will have written at least one blog post for Open Learning 2019, which puts me ahead of Open Learning 2017, although at least I came away from it with a Hypothesis account and another MOOC feed in my reader.
I've participated in MOOCs since 2010, including the occasional x-version. The past few years, participation has not matched intentions, and I've been on an extended blogging hiatus as well. When I missed most of Open Learning 2017, I told myself next year but missed that too.
So here I am following #openlearning19 tweets, reading blog posts and collecting links. And if it helps kick starts a return to blogging? Lagniappe.

Almost a month ago, I posted this update newsletter to drafts by email but didn't get around to editing and publishing. Usually an update will be too stale to use by then. This one is not, especially for those who haven't read the preliminary documents before the media wars tsunami hit. Democrats are divided -- resist or go along to minimize effect on midterms elections. Republicans tentatively predict confirmation around October 1st.
There's time to catch up and make your own decision instead of succumbing to political PR and Kabuki theater. After you've caught up with the basics, then check out more recent stories and discussions.

Monday I spent some of the day loafing, some setting up April writing, Camp NaNoWriMo. I'll let you know how that's going next Tuesday.
Today, was catching on curation backlog and general blog-keeping. I re-purposed (or would that up cycling?) one, deleted three blogs too long out of use and pains and hard to format the way I want for what I need -- still have too many blogs though.
