BLECH! If it isn't immediately obvious to you that this class is devoid of original thought after spending 10-25 minutes viewing the first week videos, this review can not help you. It has slick (though not hard to create) production values to make you think you might be getting a quality learning experience. Instead, you learn about what some group trying to standardize what is not academically researched (at least by them)... how learning online approaches can be effective or not. Instead we get banal slides (with "cool" sound effects or background music) that might as well have been: In this course you are going to read * Words * Sentences * Paragraphs * And Sections! And then you get an in-video quiz asking you bullet point words you just saw. In one slide I learned we can read some material about blended and online learning usage outside the US. In a report from 2006!!! How about tell us what happened in the stone age? And here ... BLECH!

In a report from 2006!!! How about tell us what happened in the stone age? And here is some groundbreaking information I'm sure every teacher will want to learn from this MOOC (from one of their slides with a happy, vacuous face on it): A teacher INTRODUCES Content ASSESSES Regularly ADJUSTS Instruction FACILITATES Communication and Collaboration PROVIDES Feedback The only thing worse would have been if they had made some absurd acronym out of that slide and tested us on what words made up that acronym. THIS IS AWFUL: No wonder I never heard of Kennesaw State. The UC Irvine education MOOCs have been bad enough. I'm not wasting another minute in this MOOC. I suggest you do likewise.
