OCTOBER 20, 2013
We had about 170 blogs created to support the course, and we aggregated these using RSS – content syndication supporting online learning. I was trying to get them to spot fallacies by recognizing them, by seeing signs that would remind them of common patterns of argument. The difference is that a cMOOC is designed as a network, as I described above, while an xMOOC is based on a central course site and content that will be followed by all students.
