Dr. Elizabeth Huttner-Loan describes how she and her team used forums to facilitate peer feedback on student work in the Education Technology MOOC Series (EdTechX). By providing guidance and targeted prompts, course participants responded productively to each other’s work. This, in turn, achieved one of the main goals of the MOOC: for students to collaborate with one another as well as to learn and pursue lines of inquiry together.

In this video Huttner-Loan also gives an overview of the EdTechX curriculum - its main components, and its target audience.
