The Game MOOC game with so many bricks and layers and each layer easily isolated itself from the rest of the MOOC that I thought this was appropriate. One of my favorite things about this MOOC in comparison to others was that once you dove into a community of practice you could almost ignore the mainstream discussion in favor of sharing ideas with content specific co-educators.

Game MOOC on Hold

The Game MOOC is closing up shop for a couple weeks right now. As with past MOOCs lead by Kae Novak and other trustees of the Center4EduPunx I feel that there will continue to be conversations amongst those who really enjoyed the learning so do not feel you need to pause (in game or in learning) until things resume. Keep the conversations going! I know the little micro-GameMOOC group I have been spending time with will continue to share ideas for the next several weeks. Our conversations may move more onto the Edmodo Games group just to have a central area to share from but they will be ongoing!
