The responsibility of the creator #change11

‘What is the responsibility of the creator?’
In other words, these MOOCs are set up by one or more individuals. They are created not collectively, as we go along, but usually by one or more (less than 5?) individuals working as a group. As creators and conveners of the MOOC, what responsibility do they have for their creation and the resultant learning that takes place in the MOOC? Where does their responsibility begin and end? Does it matter?” (Question found in Jenny Connected.
First and very important: The students have their own responsability in what they do with the MOOC and what they learn.
Secondary is the responsibility of the makers of the MOOC. The questions, subject, opinions formulated and stated by the makers are their responsibility. The answers, conclusions, the learned is the responsibility of the participants and students in a MOOC. The students are in some sense also the makers of the MOOC. A MOOC is a social creation of the makers and the participants. I do not agree with “They are created not collectively, as we go along, “, I believe we do create the MOOC as we go along.
The technical and organizational structure is a responsibility of the makers, but the participants do add parts of the structure.
Every adult is responsible his (her) learning, and you cannot accuse another person for your conduct, for what you learn.
