I took the first class yesterday:
MITx: 15.671x U.Lab: Transforming Business, Society, and Self
https://courses.edx.org/courses/course-v1:MITx+15.671x+3T2015/

The video: https://courses.edx.org/courses/course-v1:MITx+15.671x+3T2015/info

Embedded is a 7-minute video of the 1968 Appollo 8 moon shot, showing the earth in space, its thin atmosphere, developments in communities since

Excellent facilitators 35,000+ participants, feedback questions by twitter, in-person communities around the world (I joined an online group because my closest in-person group would be several hours drive (1 gal gas = 18 pound CO2...no brainer to not drive).

Participants from all over the world, meeting live for 1.5 hr and then meeting other times in the week online/in-person.

About 40% of participants are age 25-40
About 40% of participants are age 40+
(Recalling from memory here)


Question 1 from yesterday (paraphrased): What do you feel is dying or ending in the world?
A thought cloud was presented of the most commonly expressed replies as largest-font words in the thought cloud, with smaller fonts used for less mentioned words.
The two most frequently mentioned words here were "World" "Dying" in this question/meditition.


Question two (paraphrased): what do you feel is emerging in the world/needing to be born: Two largest fonts words were "People" and "Collaboration" (I think, correct me if I'm wrong, my notebook is not with me). 

About U.Lab U.Lab is a new type of MOOC (Massive Open Online Course) that pushes the MOOC design envelope by blending a globally transformative platform with an eco-system of deep personal, locally grounded learning communities. The goal of the course is to empower change makers to co-sense and co-shape the future.
