Course Feedback
Facilitators were of mixed opinions on the value of the global learning community to their local ones.
“Yes. It is valuable to hear from other students and educators for a varied, diverse perspective.”
"Some students engaged in the online forum earlier on in the MOOC; however, as time went on, it seemed apparent that the online discussion board was not used by our participants."
"We were all very pressed for time, and I think most of us prioritized the in-person MOOC over the online forum since it was nice to be able to discuss things in person."
