UC Berkeley, online education, RePost #learn9log

The Repost emails are still working out ok. Recently suggested for my learn9log blog is this news about a course on data.  

UC Berkeley School of Information launches first online Master of Information and Data Science degree. (PRNewsFoto/UC Berkeley School of Information)

This definitely fits with a blog about learning and ISO 9000 so the spiders are not wrong. Also it fits with my interest in MOOCs and FutureLearning. I still find the Guardian is not reporting this, or at least not with any balance, definitely not much enthusiasm.  

The Networked Learning conference is getting more active again ahead of a live event next year.  Last time as I remember there was a hotseat about analytics but not much at the  conference. The dark side got some attention of course, and there was mention of "fairy dust" . UK research will be much easier when actual courses are established somewhere else.
