this article takes the perspective tha the only activity related to MOOCs is happening in the United states and raises the question of whether Europe should get its own MOOC. I read this question to mean, "should Europe get its own commercially-funded and massively hyped MOOC." As in , "A European Mooc will need to have its own brand name, degree awarding powers and a viable business model that would attract international students, not just Europeans." But as readers of this newsletter know, there is plenty of MOOC activity taking place outside the United States, but not with the same relentless commercial fervour.
