Recently I’ve been wondering if the ‘grass is greener’ in a cMOOC. From what I’ve heard so far from peers, there seems to be support and conversation with fellow participants and room for debate on the subject covered by the cMOOC. It seems less structured and more flexible in how participants interact with the course. I feel that I am the only participant on my xMOOC and the one way conversation with my onscreen tutor isn’t satisfying my urge to converse and discuss the new found information. Although, a whats app group chat of 250 people would frustrate me! I struggled to keep up with conversation on the first EDC17 Together tube. I suppose that’s why we are all doing mini- ethnographies as you can not comment on what you have not experienced.
