Hi all,

We're getting started on the latest version of the ORMS MOOC. Please be sure to introduce yourselves in this thread. You should post this content to your blog...and share it out through social networks. I'm sharing it here, publicly on G+, Twitter, and Facebook using the #ormsmooc  and #ed6671  hashtags. You can chose where you would like to share your materials...at the very least you need to share it here in this Community...and publicly on Twitter. Be sure to include the hashtags.

I'll share all materials for the course out through my blog. You can follow these posts using the #ormsmooc  tag (http://wiobyrne.com/tag/ormsmooc/) or the #ed6671  tag (http://wiobyrne.com/tag/ed6671/).

Good luck...and have fun. :)

For the philosophy statement, if you write a paper/text version...please do not write something that is 8 pages long. That was my version from my comps meant to be an example for ideas. Read the syllabus and this blog post for guidance. It should be brief.
