Be an Introductory Course• We need low-stakes "pre-requisite" courses in Coursera • How to behave • How to use the software • How to write • Figure out technical issues • How to learn from others and help others learn....
Be an Open Learning Community• Open Source works well when there is a "Benevolent Dictator" • There needs to be real and enforced rules - but as few as possible • Those in power must not hide behind their power and must share their power with those who show the right behavior • Must make valued behaviors "infectious" / "ampliﬁed"
Teach the Teachers• I dont beleive that all students in the world should consider me their teacher in this space• I wrote a "book"- I want others to adopt it and re-mix it• Related to making a "learning community"
