Questions I want to find answers to

I am doing a MOOC about MOOC's (massive open online course). I hadn't heard the terms MOOC, PLE, PLN before but am learning fast.

Some questions I want to try and answer (I will post links to the blog when I think I have an answer)

  1. How applicable do people see this in high school or primary school settings?
  2. How do people envisage assessment occurring?
  3. Would assessment be a case of submitting pieces of work, or would it be a case of gradually developing and quantifying the respect of your peers as you progress from novice toward expert in your particular interest area?
