First day - spent an hour trying to get into Cloudworks, trying to create a profile and not understanding the messages that came back that there was no user of this name, although I was sure I had registered. So eventually go into email as now going to do some work and hey - find the email requesting authentication by reply - never occurred to me would have to come out and go back - no instruction to go there after registering and being 'within' the site assumed I would stay in until I went out (so to speak). Barriers that come from not being part of the cognoscenti... hey ho.
Ok - learnt alot from last two weeks. This is not a Massive Open Online Course but a Masive OPen ONline Conference - know what you are doing, have confidence, don't expect too much support. Of course would be self-organising but also need to have a good idea of what to achieve before even startiing. So many resources. and things like demos or papers to read with no really organised social interactive thinking - synchronous posts not very enlightening....
