Clever Mooc Style open course on cheating in the online environment. All course modules are open and available to you. 


The hastag for this course is #cheatmooc .  Clever, and provocative; can you cheat your way through a mooc? Why would you? What would be gained?  Lots to think about here.

Hello! Thank you for your article. I’d like to try to compare it to my previous experience of learning polish through Skype on online classes. I did around 10 conversations over Skype with a native speaker from http://preply.com/en/polish-by-skype. And I was pretty satisfied with their Quality. I think they have a strong teaching quality, practicing their course curriculum now I can speak polish like a native but i don't need to go any school, but I Want to try another option.
