I have internal funding and approval to offer an 'e-learning 3.0' MOOC this fall (*lots* to cover here). I'll be using gRSShopper to offer it, and participants can use their own gRSShopper instances to take it.

I like to have guests participate in my MOOCs. I have my own ideas, of course, and a good set of topics. But I'd like input. Who would you like to see in the upcoming MOOC? I'm looking for diversity of perspective, new voices, internationalism...
