Title: Enemies of Creativity
Preview: Guess sometime just doing it works out though the slogan suggests a level of mindlessness in practice that would hardly pay off in anything useful.

Title: Re: What is a MOOC? And what direction would you like to see it go?
Preview: Thank you, Vanessa, for your thoughtful (as always) response here. I have engaged with several xMOOCs myself.
