Saw this graphic and article titled "major players in MOOC world". http://chronicle.com/article/The-Major-Players-in-the-MOOC/138817/#id=overview  Don't see MOOCs like #ETMOOC or work of Siemens, Comer, et. al. on this chart.  Anyone with comments on this?

This is the text of an email message sent last Friday.   If you're part of this Google+ please post your suggestions here. If I hear from others I'll post them in the comment section myself.

While most people have a level of comfort engaging in one-on-one and small group discussions, few have built a similar level of comfort engaging in on-line meetings and information sharing. During the most recent CoP Working Group meeting we determined that there may be many on-line platforms where people might connect but there was no single consensus of which are the most effective or easy to use. Dan Bassill proposed that we invite members to submit links to forums that they've participated in and which they feel might be effective future on-line meeting places for a growing D&D group.

Here's a message from Dan:

I've been following on-line learning and relationship-building groups for more than a decade. Recently a concept called MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses) have draw attention. I've participated in two since January 2013 that engaged between 500 and 1500 people and were well organized while encouraging different levels of individual participation. I encourage you to take a look at these to see how they work.

a)  Education, Technology and Media MOOC #etmooc, http://www.etmooc.org
b)  Making Learning Connected MOOC (which is live for two more weeks)  Making Learning Connected (#clmooc)

These are supported by a blog, weekly discussion topics, a Google+ community. Members are sharing ideas via a variety of videos, Twitter chats, Google hangouts, etc.

I've also joined a Google+ community launched by the Many Voices, One Chicago group - https://plus.google.com/u/0/communities/116996536962187158064, which so far has 9 participants, but not the same organization as the MOOCs.

I've posted articles on my blog showing my interest in these MOOCs, which can be seen at http://tutormentor.blogspot.com/search/label/MOOC and I've built a library with links to articles about MOOCs, which you can browse at Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 http://tinyurl.com/TMI-Library-Blog-list"

With this as a starting point anyone who is receiving this email is encouraged to submit a list recommended on-line platforms, with a description and recommendation to me at tutormentor2@earthlink.net, prior to the next meeting of the D&D group, which will be Friday, August 16, from 2-4pm.
