Commentary by Stephen Downes

Interview of Jarl Jonas from Blackboard.  Best quote: "We didn’t aim to mimic the MOOCs provided to date, but wanted to create an open opportunity for individuals to learn how they want (i.e., readings vs. live class), interact with whom they want, and choose the tools with which they were most comfortable (i.e., blogs/wikis/discussions.)" Aka: "We didn't aim to mimic the MOOCs provided to date, but to create something just like them." See also the Google+ discussion on the article.
