Alan… bringing the business.
No. Massive is not necessarily important exactly, but it sure does change the way that you have to act as a facilitator. I also think that there are possibilities at a larger scale that aren’t present at a smaller scale. The class I just taught was, in my mind, an open course, and we had 16 people in it.
I think there are fields that are going to respond better than others. we’re going to be running one on analytics (and… educational) in the winter which should present some challenges.
You’re probably also right about the drop out issue. I was trying to address the issue, and probably should have worded it better.
