#ContentStrategy #MOOC – Week 4

Posted on Apr 27, 2015

If you’ve not read my Week 1 post from this series, you may want to read it prior to reading this post….

I plan to blog my way through, initially this MOOC, and in time through the whole specialisation. In order to stop these weekly posts from becoming a ramble I am going to try and stick to the following headings

  • This weeks theme
  • Key takeaway(s)
  • Coursera/MOOC design observation
  • Synergies with L&D
  • Homework/Assignment

This weeks theme.

Platforms And Design

Key takeaway(s)

My key takeaway from this week is shown within the Take Back To Work slide below.

Coursera/MOOC design observation

I’ve continued to take notes in Evernote and am pleased to see that each video continues to include a Take Back To Work slide.

Medill University have made all the content available from the start to allow the students who want to access all the content in one go to do so. I have taken the approach of working through the content on a week-by-week basis, which would be fine if the University had waited until the end of the MOOC to launch the final project submission – as it is they have opened the project up for submission whilst the course is in progress – leading to some understandable anxiety on my part – not a great experience (pun intended)

Synergies with L&D

Format follows story – dont let the tech/tool/platform drive the story or content.

The most important thing is to be able to measure the impact on people of what you – sound familiar?


I have not completed any of the forum assignments this week as I feel that I have to play catch up now that the final project assignment has been released.

Enough of the lurking! Why not leave a comment? You know you want to...
