This post provides a brief flavour of discussions at the “Meet the MOOCsters” event held in Garden Court at the University of Southampton tonight.

The event began with Les Carr inviting a number of guests to take the floor and explain why they had chosen to study the MOOC. Discussion moved swiftly to MOOC business models and copyright, deftly handled by Hugh Davis :-)

Nigel’s talk was filmed and we also have a number of informal interviews with people on the team answering questions posed by MOOC participants who weren’t able to attend in person. These are now published on our YouTube channel

We then moved onto coffee and cake, and in the final session Chris Phethean, Phil Waddell and Lisa Sugiera talked about their own web science research and took a number of questions from the floor.
