Three Kinds of MOOCs

Lisa M. Lane, Lisa's (Online) Teaching Blog, Aug 22, 2012
Commentary by Stephen Downes

Lisa Lane has come up with a list of three types of MOOCs - 'network based', as characterized by the connectivist MOOCs, task-based, as characterized by Jim Groom's ds106 courses, and content-based, such as the Stanford AI course. It's a pretty good list - I don't think the cleave between network-based and task-based is so large (we have continually talked in our MOOCs about how t add a greater task component to the network structure) but I can certainly see the thinking behind it. See also Audrey Matters, The Mechanical MOOC.
