It gives me insights about the emerging trends that we may use in teaching. It also give me the list of possible OER and MOOCs that I can visit to get instructional materials to aide me in teaching.
Maybe for me there wasn't so much new ideas but I count myself as advanced in ICT field also ;) But course is build up really well and this resource pdf-s in every week are especially good ...

this course is mainly completely theoretical. I wish the instructor should some practical training as well, where the learners would be asked to share their experiences after finishing a task. For example, what they find different in twitter after using Facebook, or given a situation, which tool would they recommend over the other and why, etc. Even the assignments could be more on choosing a right tool, rather than recall level questions.

The information in this course was really interesting, but the instructor brushed too quickly over topics that are assessed in the final quiz. For example, the instruction on the suggested use of leader boards in gaming (week 3) was seriously lacking. Overall, try not to cram so much in to the course, but rather focus more on the meaty aspects of the trends and technologies covered.

this is very K-12 specific, a little more info about higher ed would have been nice. the interviews with the lecturer feel a little bit like trying very hard to change a video format without a need for that, the lecturer could have just answered these questions herself or provided a FAQ section in writing instead. Overall a good course, maybe my expectation was a little different.

Better than the first, but it looks like each element was created in a single day. Some segments were repetitive and dragged on, though the instructor seemed both personable and knowledgeable. When the ONLY visual is the instructor, it gets hard to watch. An interesting model of both what to do and what not to do in creating your own online course.

The class was informative, but the delivery of the material was less appealing. Much of the material could have been presented without so much of Melissa's presence and waving hands. It was very distracting. More visuals of the sites, tools, and ideas would have been better.

Good information, timely and applicable. But presented in a very hard to access way - long sections of prose.

Lessons are good, some resources are outdated and don't work.

Mostly theoretical/background information about the use of tech in the classroom.

most of it you can't do unless you pay for it. - not sure I can even click 'complete' for the course. so not really a MOOC. - no option for collaboration.
Videos had useful content about 50% of the.
Week 4 resources was by far the best and most useful.

It sounds like one is reading a script and doing so poorly. Additionally, you complete the assignments for peer review, but no peer reviews, and you cannot review a peer.
