Looking for MOOCs

There are a couple of different types of MOOCs – Broadcast, aka xMOOCs which are getting most of media buzz and Connectivist MOOCs or cMOOCs which are the “original” MOOCs. A cMOOC is based on the Personal Learning Environment (PLE) model and is the type of MOOC described in the YouTube Video below. Some have said that the xMOOCs are just an extension of the LMS. You can locate xMOOCs at Class Central and find and learn more about connectivist MOOCs here:
