Is somewhere out there,
Hoping to discover you.

What is a MOOC?

Success in a MOOC
By Dave Cormier


An Era Has Ended:

Not since the 80's when NBC dared to introduce a show about a high school for the performing arts, showcasing in an often dramatic fashion, the lives of teens, has a show centered and inspired as well as Fame. That is, until, Glee. (Which did much of the same, but with a wonderfully inventive comedic-drama style.)

began during a time when many schools decided to cut their Arts programs not realizing just how important they are. And, they are!
Not afraid to tackle issues ranging from pre-marital sex and pregnancy, to wanting to be a virgin, to the many abilities of those mis-labeled as 'disabled. From showing that one can still be 'macho' and a jock while being sensitive and embracing the arts. That not only sports and academics matter, but the arts, as well. To the horrors of drugs and alcohol. (Things that in reality resulted in one of the show's young star's death.)

Topics such as bullying, being gay, living in abject poverty, the fears of losing a parent to a health condition. To blended families. To grown-ups often behaving badly and childish. To teens behaving more maturely than the adults who are supposed to be their role models. To religious issues. The often mixed-up media. Politics. The incredible sacrifices one makes to reach for their dreams. For a coming to terms with who you are inside. To accepting and loving oneself.

Glee is truly an inspiration. And, I hope that it has inspired you.
If you never saw it or much of it, then watch it online or on DVD or in syndication.

'Nuff said!
