I am often frustrated with the characterization of all MOOCs as amazing, or more often, terrible. In my opinion, that’s kind of like saying all books are amazing or terrible — there is too much variation to make that kind of blanket generalization.
I’ve been fortunate to participate in several MOOCs that are both truly open and engagingly participative. One of those is CLMOOC, which is returning for its third year this summer starting on June 18.
Whether you are intrigued by MOOCs or don’t really get what they’re about, whether you’re a Connected Learning or maker ed expert or these are new concepts to you, whether you have a lot of time and energy to devote to learning this summer or you don’t, CLMOOC is a valuable and fun collaboration to check out. You can sign up for more info here, join our G+ community, and/or follow us on Twitter.
And this year, we are again expanding the CLMOOC Make Bank so join us there too! Lots of great ideas you can borrow or steal and maybe even add some of your own!
