Hello, Is There Anybody Out There? - What Message Are You Sending Me?

OK, fellow Metiliteracy MOOCers, I don’t get it.

I was a little worried after I posted my survey and no one responded to it. So, I tested it myself. [Granted, it didn’t seem to work as an embedded form using my Chrome browser, but it DID in IE and my stats show that 52% of my views were done using Internet Explorer!] Therefore, I quickly added a direct link to the Google Form on my blog post.

I just wanted to thank the one librarian who DID take the survey. You validated the fact that it IS functional.

But I’m just wondering WHY no one else has responded. The survey IS anonymous. And, if you have any questions about the survey questions, you could always email me ( or use Blogger’s ‘comments’ feature.

If you ‘getMetaliteracy, then you understand that one of its key principles is the ability to engage in dialogue, and, perhaps even to engage in collaboration. It’s all about Getting the MESSAGE OUT and GettingMESSAGES BACK and STARTING/CONTINUING/DEVELOPING CONVERSATIONS.

With apologies to Pink Floyd's 'Comfortably Numb' I ask:

Is there anybody in there?
Just nod if you can hear me
Is there anyone home?

So here's hoping that the 21 people who viewed my survey WILL take a few minutes to respond to it. This is your opportunity to express your preference about how these communications are shared among Metaliteracy MOOC participants and, in addition, providing valuable feedback to future MOOC offerings.

Thank you.
