Right, as I mentioned in this blog post (http://sueerickson.com/openlearning18/in-the-open-vulnerability-is-essential-agency-is-everything-and-the-network-is-the-classroom/), those who can participate fully will gain the most from the experience. I agree that it would be hard to see the connections between all the opens and get the “meta” experience if you pop in and out. I hope that anyone dropping in for pieces of OpenLearning18 would get a good taste of it and want more and would make plans to participate fully in OpenLearning19!
