What Will Your Learning Legacy Be?

This is my first addition of the learningischange podcast in almost a year.

Discourse: A New Open Sourced Web Forum Platform

#etmooc: Singing Happy Birthday to a Course

It’s not often that I’m invited to attend a birthday party for a course—but then again, it’s not often that I find myself immersed in a learning opportunity that produces the sort of sustainable community of learning that #etmooc has.
