The 12 Week Schedule

Schedule of Expert Contributions

On May 8th we  launched a series of blog posts on this site from world renowned experts on MOOCs, all expressing their personal opinion about the topic of Quality of MOOCs.

The project follows simple rules: 12 weeks with each week featuring one new contribution, each contribution has to keep below 1500 words, each Wednesday noon there will be a new post and YOU all will have an opportunity to comment and discuss…
