Interesting Online Course

Realized by Gates foundation funds, this is David Christian’s “Big History” course  online. There are several really nice design aspects, but I sadly haven’t found much in the way of interactivity. It does feature badges for passing some simple quizzes, and an actual sticker for completing the whole course…
But, is this really a course? Is it an online media product? Is there a difference? Is it interactive? Does it involve learning communities?
At least one person is alarmed by Gates funding such a project…
