Unabridged Interview on MOOC for Chronicle of Higher Education

Curtis J. Bonk, TravelinEdMan, Jun 19, 2012
Commentary by Stephen Downes

I don't like Blackboard jumping all over the MOOC meme, but I like Curt Bonk, so it all evens out, I guess. Here is the full uncut interview he gave the Chronicle's Jeffrey R. Young (thinking back - did the Chronicle ever interview us during the five or six MOOCs we did before Curt's?) with candid thoughts about “my typical MOOC day” and other Bonkian insights. Bonk's experience - and his MOOC has endured its share of criticisms - shows just how hard it is to run a good MOOC. It's one thing to run a bunch of videos for an intro course, and quite another to offer what is more like "a summer workshop experience for college instructors." See also his 20 thoughts on types, targets and intents of MOOCs.
