How to maximise the benefit when studying a MOOC

So far these are my reflections on studying the OLDS MOOC (http://www.olds.ac.uk/) -week 1

* Studying MOOC is fun and hard work;

* A MOOC aims to attract massive participants, therefore, you may not get as much attention as you expect on a course with a small class size;

* A MOOC requires lots of effort and time from you if you want to succeed;

* You need to follow the schedule closely if possible. Otherwise you may be left behind;

* You should grab every opportunity to participate so that you can learn from other participants;

* If you miss an activity, move on to the one that everyone else is doing as you can always come back to this activity later on.

What are your thoughts on your experience of studying a MOOC?
