Another MOOC – was it the right decision?

Posted on: September 12, 2012

Some minutes ago I logged in for my second MOOC – openess in education – as I’m so motivated of MOOCs at the moment  and I love learning in MOOCs – being at the GMW 2012 conference to speak about my experience of the Change11 MOOC!

But – was it the right decision?

  • A MOOC needs time – and in October the new semester will start.
  • Is the topic interesting enough with respect to my  narrow timescale?
  • Will I be brave enough to skip modules and / or eventually become a drop-out? (I have no competences to drop-out!)

So, what would be my minimum requirements?

  • To follow the MOOC in 5 modules (out of 7)
  • To become active in 4 modules  (blog, tweet, diigo-group – after my reflection in the last blog contribution I will not join the forum)

Ok, so I will try it and start soon 🙂
