According to, the average completion rate for MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses) is 15%. That means of the 5 people at eCampusOntario currently taking the Open Ed MOOC, only one torso will complete it. We are all enjoying it and still going strong, but these stats weigh heavily on MOOCers. I think we will do much better than that.

Let’s hear your incomplete learning experience confessions.

Is there a MOOC (or other open course) that you didn’t finish? One you planned to but never even started? One you’d like to do, but just… won’t?

It’s okay. We’re all busy and we still get something positive out of the experience even if we don’t finish. Tweet, blog or film your confession. Make it really emotional for extra Extend points.
