— Eli's inane rambling (@Eli_App_D) February 21, 2017
In conversations about our MOOCs many of us have expressed worry at the lack of community to study as the forums in our MOOCs seem to be void of conversation. I’m hoping my invitation to participate in a SECRET facebook group will resolve this. Yes SECRET!
The SECRET part was emphasised quite stupendously in the email from the course lecturer, I feel like a naughty kid getting to do something outrageous.
I have found though that the facebook group is very different from the actual MOOC discussion forums. There is a different type of student taking part there, seems to be more established students and those seeking feedback from their peers.
I now have 3 elements to draw from, RL, MOOC fora and facebook 🙂
