Hi MOOC-ers! 

Tomorrow is the official start date for both The Machine MOOC for Python and the Stanford Venture Lab course on Educational Environments. Not much from Stanford yet, but the Machine has been busy sending all sorts of messages, including one yesterday with links to where the course can be accessed in Chinese! 

One thing the machine has done is assign us to random study groups for the Python course. There is a way to change groups. Would any of you who are signed up for the Python course like to try to make our own group? It might be a little bit more fun than a lot of strangers who just happen to be in the same time zone. Send me an email if you want to try to get into the same group and I'll try to figure out how to make it happen.

I have been working through some of the sections on the Code Academy lessons (one of the many resources they have) and have found it a bit buggy. Actually, I find the huge number of resources a bit overwhelming! It is hard to figure out exactly what to do first. I am hoping that will change tomorrow and that The Machine will be more specific about where to start.

I am still waiting for word from the Stanford Venture Lab course which is also supposed to start tomorrow. I guess they are sometimes slow in starting.

You can probably still sign up for either one or both of the courses. I'll put the links below again.
