Happy Lunar New Year folks!
What better way to auspiciously kick off my learning goals than to join a MOOC (massive open online course) all about Learning Creative Learning via the MIT Media Lab. Today marked the first “class” session for the 24,000 participants, who seem to be acclimating to this innovative new learning environment, reviewing the course materials, and connecting with the folks in our subgroups.
We’re just getting warmed up and so far, I’m intrigued and impressed with both the infrastructure and the passionate engagement of the community thus far. It goes to show that when the content is targeted, relevant, and compelling (and FREE to boot), the users turn out. Hopefully, I/we keep up this momentum 🙂
In the meantime, there’s plenty to explore at the links below, even if you aren’t officially registered. Resources include readings, video lectures, a ton of great links, and access to interesting folks working in all kinds of sectors who value creative learning.
