mhawksey: @jojacob_uk hard to capture people auditing the course. Seeing who is catching up is a nice side effect of using badge submissions #ocTEL

  1. Dear Maren

    “Lurkers” vs “Silent participants”?

    Here are a few other terms that could be used:

    vicarious learners?
    silent participants?
    viewer?
    Non-public user?
    legitimate peripheral participator?
    eyeballers?
    virtual participant?
    marginal participant?
    onlooker?
    passive observer?
    cognitive apprentices?
    potential member?
    proximate member?
    sympathiser?
    supporter?
    listener?
    tacit member?

    See Let’s get more positive about the term ‘lurker’

    Which term best reflects the degree/ style/ of learning? If you read a book, but never talk about it, have you learned any less?

    Best wishes

    Charlotte
