This is what I mean about complementarity. Early indications are that our research is uncovering some very positive experiences of community in rhizo14 (and I could guess that yours will do too). You comment suggests that rhizo14 was a better community experience for you than in other MOOCs – that’s great and it clearly was for many (but by no means all) people too. If it makes you feel uncomfortable, I can talk about the variety of experiences elsewhere. I am conscious that this is your blog.
