Why even need to microblog? Relationship of pedagogy to technology used? Coordinate& distribute facilitators roles in advance.Got Milk? Flickr photolicensed CC BY-NC-ND by San Diego Shooter
  7. 7. Great Gallon Give Open registration vs. open license – do both, go open all the way. Help participants find peers with a common role/interest. Establish mechanism for peers to directly ask questions or initiate discussion with each other. Leverage massive participation - have all students contribute something that adds to or improves the course overall.MOOC? Great Gallon Give Flickr photo licensed CC BY-NCby George Moris
