Why not I thought! It’s a great opportunity to learn with people all around the world who share a common interest in their Irish Identity. So without giving too much more thought to it, I signed up.
It starts on May 27 & I already have a 'study buddy' because Em has signed up too.

A short video by Dave Cormier answers my burning question... What is a MOOC?
One of the key points about MOOC’s is that they are "an EVENT, around which people who care about a topic, can get together & work & talk about it in a structured way”
For those of us who have never participated in the learning environment of a MOOC before, there's no doubting, we're in for a treat.
This new method of learning is going to be a learning curve for me, but over the next few months, I hope to post occasional reflections, share resources & conversations which relate to the course.
Please feel free to leave a comment if, like me, you've decided to give this MOOC on "Exploring Irish Identity, a go... the more study buddies we have, the better.
