An effective course for all those working as teachers, eLearning content creators, instructional designers and allied stake holders. It gives an innovative approach to think with latest affordances of eLearning.

wonderful inspirational course

A logically arranged course offering a cogent, insightful creative vision of learning in a time of emerging digital affordances. The course is interesting and worthwhile to take, beyond any shadow of a doubt. Highly recommended for anyone interested in teaching and learning in the 21st century, particularly e-learning, which increasingly intrudes on and mixes with "face to face" teaching and learning, as we harness the tools and media now available relatively easily, cheaply and ubiquitously. This MOOC . provides a good framework for thinking about the near future in 2017. If you take the course for a certificate or if you are considering using this course as an entree into the Champaign-Urbana graduate program, be aware that not all students take the peer review process seriously and that you may need to do one or more of the four peer-assessed tasks more than once to earn your certificate if one or more of your peers evaluates your work as inadequate or substandard, whether fairly or unfairly. In my view, for the most part, if you invest in the course and take it seriously, you will benefit significantly and gain new perspectives and skills. Not a perfect course, but it is engaging, informative, visionary and extremely well constructed.

The course provided a good round-up on how learning environments are changing and on which means teachers have at disposal to provide state-of-the-art education in the digital age. Weekly assignments and peer reviews help to reflect and apply the concepts of modern learning environments. Still, it gets sometimes a bit monotonous because the assignment tasks are always the same.
