1) Some sort of skills bootcamp model like they use in flat classroom projects: http://helps.flatclassroomproject.org/Bootcamps
2) A way for people to find other participants struggling with the same stuff (in my own personal learning journey finding other educators that were having the same difficulties and working through these together was very empowering). I also just came across this blog post about badges, and wondered whether there was a place for badges in a MOOC environment? http://pairadimes.davidtruss.com/badges-gaming-and-digital-media/
'What is the value of content expertise (especially in Math and Science) in a connected learning model?'

I am a math and technology teacher who has just recently taken on the task of supporting the teachers at my school as they start to try and use web 2.0 tools in their classrooms. Up to now my interest in these new tools has been limited to figuring out how they work and how I can use them in my classroom. This year, however, I have been thinking more and more about the bigger picture and asking myself bigger questions about how these tools are affecting WHAT we should be teaching and HOW we should be teaching.
