The learning map helped remind me of how exciting the early years of learning were for me and how formal education and physical sojourns to new lands played a reinforcing role in my learning. I then settled into a relatively stable career path. During Period 4 I was employed as an internal consultant, helping culturally diverse staffs of country offices of an international organization work better as teams. I professionally grew tremendously during those six years and then settled back into my project/program management career in Tanzania, where it all began 30 years earlier.

Sticks and Stones as learning toys for young children. Here's the Prezi presentation that our DNLE team created. http://prezi.com/drl7jc_bnnxz/sticks-stones/

As others have mentioned, MOOCs can be so different.  Even though the Stanford Designing New Learning Environments and Mobile Health Across Borders had the same format and equally high quality videos and assignments, the DNLE facilitators were more active and our team Skyped, which created a more personal bond. The MIT Global Poverty MOOC again had outstanding content, but it used taped lectures, which made it feel very one-way, although dialogue was encouraged. Many participants were fixed on passing the online exams and concerned about getting the certificate. I downloaded the first-rate materials and left. The etMOOC induced me to start a blog http://bluedar.blogspot.com/ and try many different tools. The archived Blackboard Collaborate sessions gave a personal touch and the teaching community was a lovely group of sharers and encouragers. I’ve been scouting for another MOOC and I’m grateful to have joined this one, albeit belatedly.
