Maha, these are really excellent tips which will not only make someone’s life easier but enhance their experience in a cMOOC. I’m chuffed that you included the example of our collaborative venture, the radio play. But seriously, this really impressed me and convinced me even more of the generosity and creativity of participants. Some of these things I’ve learned by noticing what you and others do, eg the first one – tagging specific people. This also helps encourage these people because they feel worth being tagged! No. 5 is powerful too and exemplifies the generosity of people towards their network.
The Share first read later – I’ve done that before too but it scares me a little – what if there’s something that you missed which would change your mind about sharing? But that’s why you mention trust.
Thanks Maha.
