A Quick Follow-Up on the OpenClass Post

Michael Feldstein, Neuropsychiatric Disease and Treatment, Oct 25, 2011
Commentary by Stephen Downes

The always worth-while Michael Feldstein has posted once on Pearson's OpenClass and in this short item he offers a follow-up to clarify. He writes:
- I think Pearson is trying to create a platform in the way that Google and Facebook are platforms.
- a platform approach entails a very different relationship with the vendor than simply licensing a hosted LMS
- Pearson’s marketing efforts have been finely tuned to emphasize free and easy
All of which sounds reasonable to me. Pearson's effort could be worthwhile, if they can get past the 'big publishing monopoly' phase, and focus on the 'what can we do for you' phase.
