Elizabeth Kate Switaj: My Dream: MOOCs for Books

I recently completed a PhD in English literature, with a thesis that looks at James Joyce as a teacher.
It seems that within the discipline we rely very heavily on a lecture-and-small-reading-group model. I would like to develop a plan for a MOOC that would play with other ways of reading and responding to literature while also allowing space for participants to create new ways of doing these things. (I am looking more at a connectivist cMOOC model than a corporate xMOOC model.)
My own personal interest is primarily in Joyce, but I think a MOOC like this for any work of literature could serve as a blueprint for others.
