Exit - MOOC door left

To continue the story on the MOOC turning into a MOC.

I have withdrawn from the Signature track (refunded promptly) and no longer participating in the Course. It is now fairly clear the the Virtual Teacher Stream is not for me.

Certainly it would have helped to have a more complete description on this course. The word "Advanced" in the heading needs to be explained. Is it going to "advance" a primary school teacher's skill to the level of secondary? Is it going to "advance" the skills a University Professor has?

Where is the line drawn between great course content and a personal blog (in video format?). Some of the rules of Instructional Design have been lost, which is ironic given that this is part of the content discussed.

Onto more challenges, when I find them.
