Excerpt from Show

Karen Fasimpaur, an independent consultant working in building online educational communities, working with P2PU School of Education, and one of the facilitators for this summer's MOOC, Making Learning Connected , on the MOOC:

In this MOOC, we'll be making things together and also reflecting on Connected Learning principles in the context of that making...The most exciting thing, to me, about CLMOOC is that people will be able to participate in it in any way that works for them. We're really encouraging them to address their own interests and find activities that work within their own time frame&mdaash;we know everybody's super busy during the summer. But there are a lot of different ways to participate and people are welcome to lurk, or to be more active and do a lot of posting and writing about their reflections."
