The ‘Comment Scraper’ attempts to aggregate brief summaries of independent blog posts and comments relating to the Introduction to Philosophy MOOC. (At present only WordPress and Blogger types are included). I will try to keep it up to date. NB The Scraper is experimental – comments on its performance are welcome!

Notes: Some comments made before aggregation started may be missing.
See also independent discussions about this MOOC on: Twitter – hashtag: #introphil , facebook, and Google Groups (thanks Jaap!)
Very little activity now – will monitor but leave update date until there’s a change
Main computer crashed! Normal service resumed asap!
Back on air but the 6 comments from 3 posts (2013-02-19 to 2013-03-11) are all from this blog!
Now updated but there must be more blogs making final comments on introphil ??
Rather more comments this update – any new blogs on introphil to be included?
MOOC over but I’ll update as necessary – essays for peer assessment being chewed over!
more comments than ever!
I think I’ll terminate the Scraper now – thanks to all!
