SmOOCs have a lot going for them, principally in terms of the relationship between size, diversity and openness. 12 people completed the assessment activities.

Constraints and Change in ChangeMooc

Jenny Connected

The MOOC design philosophy is based on the principles of autonomy, diversity, openness and connectedness and on four types of activity – aggregate, remix, repurpose and feed forward. Participants self-select and typically large numbers sign up and very much smaller numbers remain active to the end of the course. According to Jon Dron, the ‘sweet spot’ in networks, sets and groups is the balance point between the hard and soft technologies where emergent things happen.
