My co-worker and friend Dilrukshi Gamagehave send me this very helpful article about structuring the initial week on mooc, this subject it’s relevant in the way that a good or bad design can make our courses bored and stop participants to follow it but, if well structured, get a good feedback and motivate and engage participants to follow the course until the end.
