Getting back to my renewd MOOC Space

Posted: April 23, 2013 in Moodle MOOC posts

I’ve just finished copying my previous MOOCs Posterous Space to WordPress.

Unlike what had been suggested by Posterous, importing an XML file with its backup to WordPress, I didn’t succeed and decided to copy post by post, since Posterous is closing down by the end of this month (30th April 2013).

I think that these practices of closing down, leaving no access, for reasons of business, are very unethical. I understand that we are using a service for free but still what the users have made available belongs to  them and should be preserved.

It has been a huge waste of time, since I had also another space in Posterous with contents regarding my Ph.D course.

I’m really angry at Posterous!
