Multi(ple): literacies, tasking, connecting, networking #MOOC/s

Would that be multimoocquing (or however spelled)? I favor qu for the hard c. Getting ahead of myself (we can do that here), I came across "Reframing Information Literacy as a Metaliteracy" in CMC1l readings for week. The article struck me as Multiliteracies  relevant even if it uses the word "collaboration" too often. Call it coollaporation and let it be, let it be ...

Not the only thing I am doing out of order. In the interest of practicing an economy of scale, efficient multi-tasking and navigating chaos and especially to retain a modicum of sanity in this busy season, I've been thinking about how to connect, mentally relate, different but intersecting MOOCs. Currently in progress or about to start, these are the Program for Online Teaching, MultiliteraciesCreativity & Multicultural Communication and Change 2011. A more complete list includes previous ones. Participants remain connected on Google Reader, in personal networks and through sporadic posts on respective Facebook (& other) groups. Obviously, I'm going to need a mind map but not today.

Network the distributed networks: MOOC+ or the landscape of a quondam, moocque futurus. This very distributed network or series of distributed networks connects differently for each of us depending on individual purposes. They also connect with our outside (personal, professional, creative, community and other) lives even more idiosyncratically ... but that's another post.
