A post by  +Patrick Andrews 
http://patrickdandrews.blogspot.co.uk/2014/01/initial-impressions-of-corpus.html that highlights the differences between #corpusmooc and an online learning environment like the Open University.

I would agree that the question of moocs for educating the young is limited, there are much greater benefits for professional development.

a week2 post by +Michael Harrison http://www.mikejharrison.com/2014/02/corpusmooc-week-2-struggling-to-keep-up/ - mike i would jump to week 4 for corpus building (and all of the #antconc videos) and some of week 6 and all of week 7 for language learning.

+Carol Goodey has added another entry answering some common concerns about completing a mooc -

+Sam Shepherd has written about some limits of the FutureLearn setup i.e. discussion forums and getting lost in them - http://samuelshep.wordpress.com/2014/02/13/corpusmooc/. A couple of ways round this is to follow people and filter by their names another is to use this activity feed https://www.futurelearn.com/courses/corpus-linguistics/activity-feed.

Of course a further way is to bring in your discussion to this community :) so do post any questions/thoughts here Sam :)
