I will be on vacation in August so I won't be taking these or any other courses. Still: "The School of Open is offering its second round of facilitated courses! Starting today, you can sign up for 7 courses during a two week period." Courses in clude a couple of copyright courses (one for Australians, annother for Americans), Creative Commons for K12, Designing Collaborative Workshops, and more.

The course that caught my eye was Open Science. It was designed in a 'course sprint' during Open Data Day last February. Debbie Morrison, who took part, writes, "as I write this, I’m realizing that this is what a cMOOC looks like, what it is— learners collaborating to build knowledge." So I wonder if the best part of the course experience was in the design. See also a report from Billy Meinke, a summary of the sprint, and the course documents in Google Drive (to view folder contents you have to click the little arrow; clicking on the folder title just results in an error).
