Thanks, Keith (and sorry again about the previously deleted version of this). I like what you are describing, but was not what “covenant” sounded like to me when first explained. But maybe i don’t get it. I get the description of rhizo14 but have a question about those who left early on & later, and those who stayed but felt excluded (all happens in MOOCs all the time yeah?) Are those who committed to community responsible for trying to keep others “happy” or something? It’s totally ok for those who left not to have taken that vow. Is it a vow we take in advance, or somewhere in between? What about ppl who were not on facebook… R the rest of us responsible for their feelings of exclusion?
