Preview: will be joining us in the next few weeks.  They are all new to the MOOC experience and, as we were initially, will be feeling a tad overwhelmed with the interface, the process and the chaos that is at the center of wayfinding and moving around in a connective MOOC.  While the introductory pages are a good orientation, they can be a bit intimidating at first.  Veteran MOOCers, and .......

Post Title: Can You Go One Day Without the Internet?
By Brandy_Erdmann, Feed Name: On Creativity & Multicultural Communication
Preview: Project Reconnect is calling for a worldwide internet blackout on September 2, 2012 as a means of being "original for a day."
