Eeek, not optimistic about the Berkeley Writing MOOC I had signed up for... our first communication is taking place via... a listserve? Seriously: the instructor sent out an email asking everybody to reply to the listserve with their goals and expectations for the class.
A listserve.
For a massive online class.
In 2013.
Something is really not right about this...
This is just the top of the conversation - thank goodness GMail combines all the items with identical subject lines into a single conversation instead of flooding my inbox with separate messages...
I've pasted in below the original message... it contains no link to anything online. Nothing. Just email.
Hello everyone,

As the Writing MOOC is still being revised and programmed, I would be very happy to hear what you all hope to get out of the MOOC. Maybe you can answer some of these questions if you have time:

1. What do you want to learn?
2. What are your personal goals for writing?
3. What kind of writing do you want to learn to do better?

Or, any other thoughts and opinions you have.
