Peter B. Sloep's curator insight, March 10, 5:21 AM

Don’t expect a thorough report, this is just a one page overview ticking off such items as maximum class size,  the availability of custom analytics, and the ability to host yourself. The platforms are edX, moodle, course sites, udemy and versal. Each one is briefly discussed. The value of the list is that it allows adventurous teachers to try out a MOOC course of their own making. Institutions will want a more extensive list. Finally, ‘free’ here means ‘gratis’ (no money changes hands), not ‘open’ (as in with an open license).  @pbsloep

Why is the title of social media researcher danah boyd's (her legal name is spelled with lower case) new book “It's Complicated“?
Mindy M Walker's insight:

I  heard Danah Boyd interviewed on NPR and was intrigued by her  findings on how teens use social media to gain privacy and independence from parents that has become nearly impossible to achieve. An interesting interpretation of some of the benefits of social media teen development.

Kathyrn Chociej's curator insight, March 6, 9:24 AM

"more women use Facebook, Tumblr, Pinterest, Instagram and Twitter than men – men dominate on LinkedIn, and that’s it."

Luz Gonzalez Lopez's curator insight, March 6, 10:10 AM

I thought this article, more like paragraph and statistics clearly demonstrate the total amount of women taking over social media. I clearly understand that women have a higher rate then men because women tend to be emotional and they want sympathy from other women/girls for having issues, misunderstandings in their love life and personal general life. In my personal opinion I have experienced with my girlfriends dealing with things in their relationships whether good or bad. The rates for females are also probably higher because women/girls LOVE taking selfies. To me I would of expected a higher results than men. I find it normal.
