  1. Hello Dr. Broady, I didn’t want to spam a bunch of your posts, but I wanted to say hello and introduce you to what we’re doing at MOOC News and Reviews. We occasionally have resources that might go well with some of your posts — a list of free e-text resources last week; MOOCs for college readiness; MOOCs to help with developmental math; our series on international and local-language MOOCs that we’re starting today. I hope you’ll take a look and share anything you think would be helpful to your readers.

      I am glad to review your resources since I need to approve all postings and comments anyway. MOOCS are hot and it is important to be in the loop.

  2. Greetings from Florida! I’m bored to death at work so I decided to browse your site on my iphone during lunch break. I enjoy the info you present here and can’t wait to take a look when I get home.

    I’m amazed at how quick your blog loaded on my phone .. I’m not even using WIFI,
    just 3G .. Anyways, awesome blog!

  3. With havin so much content and articles do you ever run into any issues of plagorism or
    copyright infringement? My site has a lot of exclusive content
    I’ve either created myself or outsourced but it appears a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my agreement. Do you know any solutions to help protect against content from being stolen? I’d genuinely appreciate
