Designing a Dual Layer cMOOC/xMOOC

At any time the learners on the xMOOC track start to get comfortable with the idea of interacting with others (or the AI data identifies this), they can move into the cMOOC track." Or - we could just seed the discussion with learning resources on an ongoing basis, as appropriate.

And I am realizing, over time - TED is the Upworthy of academia.
