As per Yishay's last communication Im posting this for anyone who is not yet in a study circle and want to be in one. to follow the instructions it should be wise for the group to be 7 to 10 members strong but this is ultimately up to this group to decide. Let me know if you are interested and I will add you to this circle (I just have to find out how lol)I am new to MOOCs and to dreamscape so this is indeed a tripple learning curve for me (adding the paradigm). To have group discussions or hangouts this would be a good group for people from Europe or Africa ect.  

Because a study circle has a limited number of participants I have also created a Google + Community. This is a more free for all space where we can meet and help one another throuout this course. Its more a trow it into the air and see what stick kind of place. This is separate to this Cloudspace studdy circle though but it is mor of a support group.please see the link or if it does not work look under communities for the OLDS MOOC community and join them. I will add you as soon as i am notified.

I have modified the link to refer only to one G+ group.

Hi all

Welcome on boeard Niall. We are four thus far. I have created a Google+ community for the MOOC but it seems that there are some duplication. How do you feel about using the Google+ page as our group's discussion page, as a sort of gathering point for our conversations. It is just easyer to follow up on a speciffic topic than it is in Cloudworks. Please let me know houw you feel about this.

I'm happy to use Google+. What is the name of the G+ community?

Hi Everyone,

I'd like to join the group too. I've decided that I'm not particularly fond of the cloudworks format and like that you have set up a group in google.

Naill and Heather

I need both of your google + details to add you to the group and this procedure is a bit messy but just bare with us.

Please go to the following link:

It will take you to an old OLDS MOOC site that we have abandoned due to duplication. Subscribe to the community and I will be able to get your details to send you an invite to the team's google+ site. There might be easier ways to do this and if you know them use them, but this is a quick and dirty approach.

Hi Chris


I'm currently looking at a project on webinars and how to plan them, but would love to drop in on your study group - this is an area I am very interested in and would learn from listening to the chat.

Hi Chris.

I'm trying to adjust my timetable in my main "day job" at the moment to give me more time to contribute to the MOOC. Love to join in with this group if there is still room.
