schMOOC” = “somewhat connectivist, hypothetically Massive Open Online Course” --
NOTE: *a “schMOOC/MOOCOW” is our version of a MOOC (Massively Open Online Course):
“somewhat connectivist” because the course offers DIY and other connectivist options but also offers more structure than a typical cMOOC. “hypothetically” Massive because the course is open to all but not likely to be huge.
Encourage. Enable. Engage.
