I like this acronym - it's not complete, but it's a great start: "BAD is an acronym that captures what I think is missing from the institutional approach to university e-learning
- Bricolage – the LMS as Enteprise Systems doesn’t allow or cater for bricolage.
- Affordances – resulting in an inability to leverage the affordances of technology to improve learning and teaching.
- Distribution – the idea that knowledge about how to improve L&T is distributed and the implications that has for the institutional practice of e-learning."
This wasn't what we were trying to develop when we developed MOOCs, but if this had been the description of what we were trying, it wouldn't have been far off.
