ABSTRACT
This paper shares the experiences of a course team in designing and delivering a massive open online course (MOOC). It offers insight into how their approach can help build learning communities and enhance pedagogy for online learning through a return to best practice. It will discuss how a combined approach of using a core site in conjunction with social media platforms can temporarily overcome the functional limitations of xMOOCs, more deeply engage students, and improve moderation. Central to this, the concepts of collective effervescence and radical inclusion are shown to be effective principles of course design which facilitate ongoing support networks - an effective and sustained strategy for combating pluralistic ignorance within research education contexts.
