Contributing MOOC reviews

Well it seems MOOCs are well underway – I can see the newest trend coming: separating the wheat from the chaff. Emerging MOOC platforms are numerous, so are the lessons provided. But are they all worth the trouble? Can they be made better? It remains to be seen.

I have contributed two personal reviews for http://moocnewsandreviews.com during the past two weeks and it has helped me reflect immensely what worked for me and what didn’t.

The Language of Hollywood Coursera / Wesleyan Course :A review

Today I am going to shamelessly use this space and promote the newly founded site of  http://moocnewsandreviews.com/ – It contains everything you need to know about MOOCs, reviews, suggestions, how -to’s and lots of interesting ideas.

It also features my first publication http://moocnewsandreviews.com/mooc-review-the-language-of-hollywood/ which I hope you ‘ll find insightful.

 

As always feedback, comments and shares are most welcome….Off to my Mooc studying now…..
