I have been trying to understand the rhythm of a MOOC. After two MOOC experiences, I have come to the conclusion that the learner needs to create their own rhythm. The MOOC truly is a container in which I can create the contents to be in rhythm with my needs.
Then there is the idea of being "real."
When thinking about being "real" my mind is drawn to The "Velveteen Rabbit" story by Margaret Williams. Figuring out how to be "real" in other words, to develop a social presence and make connections with others in an online environment takes time.
