Eight week course (w 1 break week) Structured via e-mail list Communication archived on WordPress No SME support—logistics only Three overlapping “sequences”

No platform No teacher No(t much) money

+ ’s Leverages existing resources & investments Provides a flexible framework for connecting projects Provides learners with persistent access to resources

- ’s Student data is scattered Lives at mercy of project production schedules Certification wasn’t an option (at least not yet)

Seq 1: ~ 5,700 learners Seq 2: ~2,600 learners Seq 3: ~1,000 learners

E-Mails opened

Sequence 1 Survey N = 83 Assuming a 5% response rate, 1660 “engaged learners” in week eight. 25% were finished, so around 415 complete, or ~7% of total enrollment. But do we care…?

Thoughts Platforms are not necessary. Learners do just fine moving across resources. Maybe communities ought to be bigger than courses.

Thoughts Openness remains important. Learners now define success. Maybe the problem with MOOCs will be they are too cheap to produce, not too expensive.

Our Experiences… ☺ Affinity-based grouping ☹ Email glitch delayed start of course ☺ Course content and structure – Clara & Brad ☺ Google charts & spreadsheets ☺ Custom mixing tool & Soundation DAW ☺ Live interview & process videos ☹ Attendance at live interviews (Saturday mornings) ☺ Peer feedback in Google+ community ☹ Strict cohort & fixed week-to-week structure

Looking forward… Redesign course to engage G+ community • Start course anytime • Flexible timeline for course • Multiple pathways within content • Seed affinity groups in G+ ! Content partnerships with major artists !
