And guess what…I have stayed mostly on track, and I think I will finish it.
I only have one week left, and I have only one task to complete. Not bad if I do say so myself. I must be a genius. Not like the 95% of you who started a MOOC and didn’t finish (Not that I ever did that). Not this time. I am a "five percenter” (well, almost) and proud of it.
Even though some say high drop out rates don’t matter, I wanted to finish this course for two reasons:
- I am interested in the topic
- I didn’t want to start it and not complete it
The only thing I did not do was participate in the discussion forums. I found them overwhelming and pointless. They felt more like support communities and course communities.
Next week, I will write about what I thought of the course and what I learned.
