Small edits made 16 February 2014. Small changes made to first presentation 9 October 2013
On 30 September and 1 October I gave two talks during "Science Dissemination and On-line Certification for All" at the International Centre for Theoretical Physics in Trieste. On 20 February 2014 I will do a variant of one of these talks in Brussels at a meeting of the European Trade Union Institute's Pedagocical Committee. Below are some links that are (loosely) relevant to the presentations, two of which are: An introduction to massive open online courses [0.5 MB PDF]; and What I learned from being a MOOC learner [0.5 MB PDF].
