  1. I've done several online courses ,both in the early years of 2000. The first was a programming course that worked out very well because it was basically a one on one.
    The second was a history course where the instructor grouped us up. This was a total failure first because wee could never meet as a group, and also there is always one alfa student that wants to control the show so your input was never well received if it did not fall into the thinking of the leader. This format created a conflict with a person you never saw or had no one on one personal interaction with.

  2. I just came across this article on twitter. http://www.insidehighered.com/views/2012/11/29/essay-challenges-posed-moocs-liberal-arts-colleges#.ULpYNkb6YnI.twitter
