We will demonstrate the ways that Writing II: Rhetorical Composing MOOC participants "hacked" online learning spaces to suit their own educational needs. Participants established multiple social media outposts, developed original course content, and hijacked discussion forums. The presenters will share pedagogical lessons learned and questions regarding how to facilitate robust learning communities.


OUTCOMES: Understand the importance of creating flexible infrastructure to promote interaction among learners and between learners and instructors * Share a selection of student work to demonstrate pedagogical "lessons learned" * Share best practices for cultivating robust online learning communities in MOOCs and other digital education environments
