Transcript of Sentimental campus: Dublin February 19

University space: MOOCs, distance education and the sentimental campus Sian Bayne, School of Education, The University of Edinburgh I want to question the ‘sedentarist’ assumptions which have been, and continue to be, dominant within the academy. These ‘treat as normal stability…and place, and treat as abnormal distance…and placelessness’.
(Sheller and Urry, 2006: 208). I want to think again about university space. 'We may take such spaces for granted...but a mobilities analysis would examine the ways in which such spaces are enacted and become sedimented across time.'

"I have been inundated with Facebook posts since I joined this class. It sounds like there are oceans of tweets and other discussions out on cyberspace as well. Maybe I'm too old for this, but I need more of a road map... I'm feeling like I have been thrown into an abyss and have to figure out for myself how to navigate! Is this how a MOOC works? No structure at all?"
(discussion board post) I really enjoyed and was so impressed with/by all that posting, contact, discussing... I have not managed to keep up with it all - but I have felt part of a vibrant community - I have felt engaged - and I have felt joy.

Bill Miller (blog) "Transliteracy happens in the places where different things meet, mix, and rub together. It is an interstitial space teeming with diverse life–forms, some on the rise, some in decline, expressed in many languages in many voices, many kinds of scripts and media. It is a world where print has a place, but not the only place."
Thomas (2001) 1 Course space 3 Overwhelming space 4 Transliterate space 2 Learner-made space made by Cathleen Nardi made by Angela Towndrow made by Cathie Gillespie made by Kathy Maielli Where are the professors?
"as far as I can see, this course is some kind of reading , viewing videos and interpreting things about digital culture... but somehow I feel like doing this all on my own without any assistance or guidance from professors and being really "in" the course... where is my teacher? I think I could do this any time on my own, but where is the guideline, where is my teacher?"
(discussion forum) 5 Un-tutored space "Who needs professors? The majority of the students in this course are capable enough to guide participants through the course. We call this social constructivism."
(discussion forum) "It is time to consider carefully what difference a teacher’s material body can make. This means pushing beyond simplistic notions of the human need for social interaction on a ‘real’ campus, by coming to grips with some fundamental epistemological concerns about corporeality, knowing and pedagogy."
McWilliam, E. and Jones, A. (1996) Pedagogy, technology and the body. New York: Peter Lang. “Thank you Diick Vestdijk for posting the link to the google hangout, i knew it was happening but missed it and didnt know that we could watch it after transmission, THERE was the humananity in the the MOOC for me, it absolutely transforms the course experience."

un-tutored space The university, like any ‘object’ is always enacted across multiple topologies, ‘dependent for [its] constancy on the intersection of different spaces’ (Law, 2002: 98).
An argument for more nuanced academic geographies is strengthened by the scale and creative maelstrom of the MOOC. To conclude 60% female; 40% male
36% aged 25-34 years
60% employed in education
61% have a PG degree http://edcmoocteam.wordpress.com/ sian.bayne@ed.ac.uk
