#corpusMOOC and me

Here we go again. I have succumbed to my fourth MOOC – the Corpus linguistics: method, analysis,… MOOC run by Lancaster University. The furthest I have ever got so far on a MOOC was in my first one, #fslt12, was about half way. I not quite so well with my second, #OCtel, and the third one – a MOOC on philosophy run by Edinburgh University I think I didn’t get past the first week.

Starting the Corpus linguistics MOOC in week 2 I am getting some insight into how I like to participate in such event. The overload of video is troublesome for me – and skipping week 1 and heading straight for week 2 I straight way see a string of videos to consume.

After the first one, I skip through the rest to the quiz at the end. I then start to do a little research to find the answers – which has involved some Google search and some scan reading through the transcripts of the videos.

And then I get distracted and start to write this post ………..
