Why Do Smart People Do Dumb Things? Thinking about School Reform
, , December 24, 2012
Commentary by Stephen Downes

I was asked for my take "on Cuban's labeling MOOC's at Stanford (and other schools) as a 'dumb thing.' Do you think that these high-level university MOOCs are missing the whole point of the MOOC anyway?" In my view, Cuban's article is a sleight of hand. He gives examples of people making the same mistake over and over. But the last example is responder-responder-MOOC. But a MOOC is nothing like a student  responder system in a lecture hall (see my longer response).
