Project Planning a MOOC
The course teams involved with our MOOCs included experienced academics with familiarity in developing materials on a learning platform. Nonetheless, for each of them it was their first experience of MOOCs, as it was for the project planning team.
Delivering a MOOC
A range of styles and learning methods were adopted by the four MOOCs, appropriate to the subject matter covered. A MOOC structure of six weeks and 5-10 student effort hours per week of study appeared to be just right for the majority of students (55%). Some considerations for future delivery include:
< Well designed announcements at the beginning and end of each week that articulate with the topic coverage, learning activities and assessment methods can be effective at maintaining student interest and motivation.
< Management of forum threads and posts is a critical factor in dealing with massive scale short courses to ensure the majority of students are not affected negatively by the behaviour of a small number of the community, while preserving the openness of the discussion areas.
< The Coursera platform tools are significant and comprehensive in terms of plotting overall student activity, allowing evaluation of assessment data, as well as usage statistics on video resources and other learning activities; however, further refinement of these tools to enable both students and teaching staff to understand their progression at an individual level is necessary (and underway).

Day 1: I. How to Be an Efficient (Online) Networker
Part I is for everybody who would like to learn how they can be more efficient in their online and face-to-face networking. It consists of the twenty rules for networking, based on 10 years of research analyzing (online) social networks by the instructor.
General networking rules: 2 for personal and 3 for group networksOnline networking rules: 3 for e-mail, 2 for Facebook, 3 for LinkedIn3 face-to-face networking rules
As part of the course, you will create a "virtual mirror" of your own communication behavior, telling you how much of a “star” or a “galaxy” you are, analyzing your own Facebook and e-mail networks. You will use the new Condor 3.0lite, which allows easy download of individual Facebook and E-Mail networks. To experiment with the coolhunting software tools you will need to bring your own laptop with a working WiFi connection. You will get the software on the first course day on a USB memory stick.
