Interesting and informative. I came with a different agenda and perspective than others at the workshop, so I suspect I took back different learning. Look forward in particular to the final wrap-up session.

As a MOOC student, I was particularly curious about the cultural aspects of online learning from the instructor perspective, and this workshop definitely gave me some of that, as did a follow-on conversation with one of the attendees. In that sense, I was surprised not to hear more about reach as an aspect of online vs. brick-and-mortar learning, both the ability to achieve global reach and the ability to dramatically multiply the number of students reached. Similarly, I was intrigued that the issue of business models was not addressed. In all cases, I suspect this is about the fact that only so much can be crammed into a single introductory session. More mundanely, this is the first time I've seen real-time polling used this way, which was an interesting experience.

I'll be curious to see whether the issue of platform choice and assessment, and augmenting platform capabilities with social media, are addressed at some point. For example, the Translation MOOC (which I've taken) was launched on Coursera, which is actually a rather poor platform for building community compared with FutureLearn, and I've seen people deal with that by combining it with social media for both community and for projects.

Glad I attended. Although honestly, "It was great!" may be a bit of an over-reach.
