To make sense of my learning experience, I adopt the title of Jorge L. Borges short story In the garden of forking path as metaphor of the hypertextual landscape constituting the complex and wide  MOOC’s space of learning where I will participate. 

In fact, Borges conceives the garden as "a labyrinth that folds back upon itself in infinite regression", asking the reader to "become aware of all the possible choices we might make" (Murray, 2003).  He also define the garden and its infinite designs as a semantic representation, that can only be appreciated by another, omniscient reader.

This is my metaphor. I hope I will be able of reading my representation at the end of the travel through the OLDMOOC.
