11:26 PM nnorman: As a lurker, and a new MOOCer, I have found the existing structure of the course confusing. The live sessions did provide structure that was needed for me.
11:26 PM nnorman: I don't have a camera, on my desktop, so I'll pass on joining in this week.
11:28 PM JL: Thanks for lurking - feel free to join in without webcam if you like - as long as you have a mic, you can still chime in

Bernie DeKoven: thanks so much for letting me be part of this - really remarkable group of people playing with equally remarkable technologies (well perhaps not equally). Sorry to have to leave. Please keep me in your loop.
Rob Darrow: Lisa, can you say it again?
Sanford Arbogast: Alison I am also teach statistics
Alison Snieckus: oh, how interesting that three of us here teach statistics.
Sanford Arbogast: what are teh probablitites of that happening?
Alison Snieckus: I think Jeff wants us to chat on the live stream page.
Rob Darrow: Hmm, that reminds me of an old song, "Free to Be You and Me" We could rewrite to be "Free to Mooc for You and Me."
Kay Endriss: Sanford, I thought your last name looked familiar. Published?
@Alison: no kidding. Seriously, what are the odds?
Alison Snieckus: hehe
Sanford Arbogast: no maybe you are thinking of the detective in psych
Kay Endriss: @Sanford Ah well. Memory not what it used to be.
Lisa M Lane: Didn't they try that with learning objects? and they're all over the place
Lisa M Lane: does that make Google search super important? maybe we need Google Student or something
Rob Darrow: Alison, where are you located...and what level of stats do you teach where?
Lisa M Lane: that's what's hard about the "course" idea
Osvaldo Rodriguez: adios a todos
Lisa M Lane: that's what I was going to ask - can this keep going?
