Today the course website for my Open University course in Science Communication in Information Age became available. I was excited – I would find out how to connect with everybody else on the course and beyond! But the excitement was short-lived – it felt like I have walked into an empty building. Not even a hashtag in sight – not to mention a public blog! And 40-odd pages of introductory materials to go through before I am deemed ‘literate’ enough to join the course proper. And to think that this is the way I used to set up my own postgraduate offerings…Oh how the #moocmooc has changed me!
That’s it – I am joining #etmooc to detoxify!
