This week Rob Lewis interviews Chris Cavey, Lead Educator for the British Council's first ever Massive Open Online Course (MOOC), 'Exploring English: language and culture'. Interest in the course has been overwhelming and more than 100,000 learners have signed up to the course in the first week.

In our interview, Chris talks about how the course was created and discusses the logistics of managing over 100,000 online learners and responding to over 145,000 comments in the first week. He also discusses how there is a genuine sense of community developing on the course, with lively discussion and exchanges taking place between learners. In his opinion, this may be one of the most valuable aspects of the course.
