So much for my first MOOC

Just posted the following in the forums:

  • All the nonsense posted without any proof or evidence.
  • Ignorance that goes unchallenged.
  • Little management of the discussion forums.
  • Over-reliance on non-academic sources, particularly the dearth of peer-reviewed literature.

This course is an epic fail if the goals was to offer anything of university-calibre–in terms of rhetoric or pedagogy. Open access discussion forums do a better job of self-managing themselves than what I’ve encountered here.

I’m surprised at my own level of frustration with the course and how it’s been managed. Or not managed, as it were.
