Reflections on OLDS MOOC Part 2.

Continuing my nautical analogy from yesterday…. The voyage has finished – was wound up today at a Google Hangout “convergence session” but many of us are already planning our next cruises and some, like me, are already sailing back to some of the islands we visited on this MOOC. Part of what I signed up […]
