I agree on the intentional community building aspects. Ever since rhizo14 I’ve become very mindful of intentional community building, and I’ve observed how other MOOCs do it, and how f2f teachers do it, and I’ve become more careful about how I do it myself. I’ve also become more observant about how relationships evolve in the classroom and apparently it’s something I care about a lot, because nothing makes me happier than seeing community in my classes. And few things frustrate me more than a MOOC that makes no effort at all to build community, especially a cMOOC (and yes, some have not!)
