Quotes of the Week: November 29

Now, some of these items come from Twitter, and things at Twitter can be kind of weird: is someone quoting someone else? paraphrasing? responding? Often, I can't really tell who the words belong to, but they are still great words! So instead of trying to attribute these to people, I'll just link to the source where I found the words... if you want to try to figure out who said what, you can start sleuthing there. More quote round-ups here.

And since some of this comes directly or indirectly from Connected Course events, I'm tagging it #ccourses. I've included some fun graphics too. :-)

And two items of MOOC hilarity from Alan Levine: MOOCopoly (I had not seen this one before!) and MOOCS on a Plane (something new, prompted by Coursera and JetBlue):
