Questions & Perspectives
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."
