The Personal Learning Envrionments, Networks and Knowledge
course was offered in 2010 by Dave Cormier, Rita Kop, George Siemens and Stephen Downes. It explored the concept of the personal learning environment and personal learning networks.
In offering the course, an extensive research project was undertaken, and a great deal learned about sustaining participation in a MOOC. Some of the ideas included:
- encouraging the use of social media
- offering the course in combination with an online event or conferenceTips on how to sustain participation in a MOOC
