David Jones criticizes a presentation by John Daniel on the future of education (available here). He writes, "Sir John’s talk focused entirely on xMOOCs. There was no mention whatsoever of cMOOCs." Why is this significant? "Senior management taking it upon themselves to analyse and determine how best the institution can navigate these 'turbulent times' informed mostly by their experiences and the abstractions of interest to those operating at a strategic or institutional level. The absence of other perspectives suggest they are more likely to miss the boat, than successful navigate to another port." They understand the didactic model as practiced by traditional institutions. But the cMOOCs were something quite different from that - and outside their, and John Daniel's, experience.
