Learning Creative Learning – How we Hacked the MOOC


Back in spring 2013, P2PU undertook a giant experiment, along with collaborators at the Media Lab at MIT. The object of the experiment was to see if it was possible to hack a MOOC, and create meaningful mass learning experiences online.

The result was Learning Creative Learning, which was a course, but also a community, a lab and an answer to the question of whether MOOCs are hackable.

The team who worked on the initial project, Philipp Schmidt, Mitchel Resnick, and Natalie Rusk from the Lifelong Kindergarten group at the Media Lab have written up their learnings into a wonderful Lab Report,  which now lives on the P2PU reports page. We’re super chuffed to be able to share it, particularly because the next cohort for Learning Creative Learning launches in a few weeks. Anyone interested can sign up here.
