MOOC Mentions

Someone mentioned me!

“I am so excited by the MOOC concept, that if properly designed could scale to world changing proportions”

I can still remember the intense rush I felt, when during my first ever MOOC, I was mentioned by name in the “day 1” review.

Learn about the World Wide Web

Oct 13, the Connected Courses MOOC unit titled “The World Wide Web – From Concept to Platform to Culture” starts. I hope you check it out.
