I am so fortunate to find this course as my first MOOC experience. The materials for the course are all provided within the syllabus and anyone with an interest in poetry can immediately start a great adventure with Al and the gang. The videos are round table discussion style and are filmed in a style that allows the viewer to feel a sense of location. I have sat here in Kentucky with my laptop and felt transported right to the Kelly Writers House and there seems to be a chair at the table for anyone. Discussions are open and all opinions are welcomed as long as you do the work to support the opinion. Quizzes are teaching tools and the real meat of the course is the discussion groups. Such a wealth of knowledge and creative energy in the discussions--that is what truly gives the energy and the scope of this new way of learning. I wanted to know more about poetry, I got to know more about the world.
