Greetings #etmooc-ers

Thanks to Alison Seaman and Alec Couros for letting me slip in the side door and add a tiny bit to the early planning for #etmooc. Already it’s been a valuable experience – the core group behind this venture is pretty amazing.

You can find out more about me at About.me/jeffmerrell or via my other blog, Learning. Change. Design. A bit about my motivation and interest in etmooc is in the video. The graduate program I mention is the Master’s Program in Learning & Organizational Change at Northwestern University in Evanston, IL (just north of Chicago). In spite of my whining about the cold this morning — it is a full 40 degrees colder today than Saturday — I consider myself very lucky to be able to walk to my office from my home, to a gig that is consistently inspiring, and to work with a group of really smart people who never seem to pass up on opportunities to explore new things.
