So there I was thinking I could have a go at the Puzzle game from the ocTEL page, but alas the site was blocked. This is an issue with any kind of MOOC or TEL activity when the learner has to access a third party site that an "administrator" has deemed to be "unsuitable". The key question is how easy is it to have the site unblocked. In this case probably unlikely as I am using the public wifi at the local library. What is also quite interesting, but could be worrying for learners, is the comment "The request was logged". You could imagine a learner thinking that if they went to too many blocked sites they would lose their internet access. It's an interesting aspect of this MOOC that I suspect hasn't really been thought about.
