MOOCs and mobile

Among the various MOOC platforms, which really work as mobile platforms? The FutureLearn platform in the UK was meant to have been designed with mobile in mind from the start. I have not done a MOOC on FutureLearn yet, and may very well find myself factilitating or teaching one soon enough, so I would really like to know if learning through FutureLearn, or any other MOOC platform, works well via mobile devices.

To this end, I have created an extremely short survey — 4 questions! — to try and get a flavour of MOOC learners’ mobile experience. If you have participated in a MOOC and attempted to do so via a mobile device or two, please would you take the survey here:   

I will be reporting the results of the survey next week at our Open Education Week webinar entitled New Global Open Educational Trends: Policy, Learning Design, and Mobile, on 11 March 2013 at 12.30 GMT. The Open Education Week website has details of how to join in – everyone is invited!

And I will report my survey findings on this blog as well.
