What is it that makes it a MOOC? We can talk about numbers, diversity, countries etc, but for me I need to know more about the participants.

How much of CCK08 is genuinly new (in MOOC terms), and how much of it is people sitting at the feet of George and Stephen and listening in much the same way as didactic teaching.

What needs to be done now is to identify the numbers involved in CCK08, survey their experience and also critically evaluate the interactions, we should also try to perceive the motivations, learning and actions of the participants before we make too many judgments about these approaches.
