I’ve decided to participate a MOOC on the future of higher education. The MOOC is being faciliated by George Siemens and Rory McGreal, and seems like it will be a vastly different experience than the MOOC on Mathematical Thinking I’m currently exploring being run by Keith Devlin. My primary objective will be to explore the difference in format between these two MOOCs and see which of them I think is a more productive learning environment, specifically focused on the needs of my students.

Hopefully I’ll also get a chance to meet some people who are involved in coordinating these types of learning experiences for their universities.
