Hey @ahnjune, stellar data and insights.
The "How to Build a Learning Community Online" course will prompt folks to co-design their course with other folks and get feedback early on. My hypothesis is that:
- codesign keeps your audience in mind
- codesign shares the weight of responsibility
- codesign is more sustainable because it's networked and empowers others to take on leadership
Interesting that folks try to create a course in 1 day. That's a puzzling design problem--because I don't think it can be done. Perhaps we need to think about re-marketing to them or telling them to stop, think and come back to it. Running a course is itself a learning experience, it takes time, and the attrition rate will probably be similar to that of other online courses (unless folks have significant content / marketing support or project management to keep them on track).
I know that at Skillshare, each project manager has 12 courses per month they help develop. Co-design is a more sustainable (and community-centered) approach to course design.
Having taken a course before is interesting--means we should look more at onboarding people in our MOOCs to the core community, reach out to them to design their own course shortly thereafter.
