Some interesting info, not a question: MITx launched today - I hope to see some other OpenStudy people in it - and in light of some of the recent discussions about the medal system, a review of their 'karma system' for awarding points and 'moderator privileges' is very interesting...

    Too bad I can't join this one :( @blues: Do you know about stackexchange's r 'Reputation system' for awarding points and 'moderator privileges'?

    Great to see MIT taking such an initiative. Wish I could help the folks in the course discussion forums; I'm no EE guru :( Good luck to all :-D
