Professor Lovett, who holds Leeds Leadership Chair of Global Challenges, said: Im new to online education and the quantity and quality of debate among the participants was really excellent. It was a privilege being in the MOOC with everyone.

It felt like being in a room of friends the range of opinions was fascinating, and the discussion has been polite and informative.
