As many of you know, I am on a journey across a wide stream. This weekend, I jumped another stone across that stream on my way to the other side. I am on a journey to a terminal degree in Education specializing in Educational Technology. While there is plenty to be done, I pause this week to celebrate with my friends in RL and in SL. This is a milestone that I never thought I would pass, and if you knew me in 2004 you would have agreed with the team of doctors from a very good university hospital that I would never be anything but a vegetable if I survived. The thought of getting this far literally brings tears to my eyes. I have held down more than one job at a time, I have lived alone, I drive a car, and I am earning a PhD in Educational Technology. So celebrate with me! Connect with me inworld or on Twitter and tell me how you are celebrating!

Courtney talks about broadening the box of educational innovation instead of doing things the same way we have always done them since the industrial revolution. But what if we looked where there was no box?
Are you ready to go all in?

MOOCs in all their forms are about leveraging the scale and abundance of the internet for learning. One of the ways I like to think of the MOOC is as a call for help. I am here, sitting in a pile of abundance, looking for people to work with. A network to help me find. A community to help me learn. A way of using the internet to make better sense of the world. A place in which to grow.
