The other day I had an interesting (but brief exchange) with Kelvin Bentley on twitter about MOOC completion. This isn't really a topic that I come back to often, given that completion-rates for MOOCs, as a topic, seems to have kind of died down, but it is fun to come back to it. To my knowledge, no one has come up with some sort of taxonomy of the different degrees of completion of a MOOC†.But

For the past semester I've mostly ignored synchronous learning on coursera. Instead of consuming materials as they are released, I log in once a week, download the videos for the course, and I keep them in my video library.

View from Itea, Greece Some people bring a book on vacation (which I have) and others immerse themselves in the local culture (which I am also doing to some extent), but since I find myself lucky enough to be vacationing somewhere with fast wifi access I decided to continue to MOOC while I am on vacation from the day job.
