In the literature, peer-feedback is seen as a scalable way to manage large student numbers. Scalability often is approached by a quantitative perspective: “A MOOC is scalable because it provides education…

What I am referring to is the energy that we feel and express as human beings, every day. Some people spread positive energy, and others negative energy. I think it’s a combination of a person’s past, their attitude, their dominant thoughts…
