A Course or a MOOC?

As we work to get our last few participants set up in our course, we would like you to think about how this course is different from others you may have “taken”.

This course is a tiny MOOC.  What does that mean?  We think Dave Cormier explains it really well.  For the full video, check out our OSSEMOOC site here.  For more information on kinds of MOOCs, an explanation can be found here.
