Cathy Davison made a significant contribution towards showing how MOOCs of the future should be run using connectivist principles - the curriculum was fluid and adaptable, you could break into smaller work-groups and use social media collaborative tools (eg Google hangouts). Some of the challenges were highlighted (having to operate in global timelines, the massive size of student groups etc). We were awarded a certificate not a badge for this course - we discussed the future of accreditation in the course!

This course is split into two components where the first 3 weeks are a look back at how we arrived at our current educational system/testing protocols and the second 3 weeks which are forward looking about innovative ways to improve how we teach students. The history was great and what I was interested in. The look forward wasn't very engaging to me individually. Workload was light and I could watch all the videos and take the quizzes from my phone. This courses is good for those who want to casually learn and have time to kill while commuting or traveling
