Student Directed Learning - #bCreative

Today I've started this course: Ignite your Everyday Creativity. It has 3 different 'themes' that you can choose to study. The introductory video claims "this course is about you". By putting a hash tag on each theme #bCreative #bAware and #bInspired they are encouraging students to identify with one or all of these themes and use these tags in their communications during the course. The student can choose these themes and choose their own study path. I'll be posting here about this aspect of this course design and whether this is realistic in the Higher Education online learning.
I'll be tweeting on #wentale for the other aspects of this course! The mantra for Week 1 is

"I am Creative"
