Revolution Hits the Universities

Thomas L. Friedman, Hack Educa, Jan 28, 2013
Commentary by Stephen Downes

Thomas L. Friedman gushes about MOOCs. "I can see a day soon where you’ll create your own college degree by taking the best online courses from the best professors from around the world — some computing from Stanford, some entrepreneurship from Wharton, some ethics from Brandeis, some literature from Edinburgh — paying only the nominal fee for the certificates of completion. It will change teaching, learning and the pathway to employment." I think we need to understand that 'best' does not mean (as it currently seems to) 'best marketed', and that the entire world will be competing to offer online learning, not just the Harvard-Stanford-MIT nexus.
