In a longish and comprehensive piece covering most of the recent (ie., last week's) coverage of MOOCs Steve Krause tries to set the record with 'two truths' about MOOCs:
- Truth #1: MOOCs and Online Education are NOT the same thing.
- Truth #2: Broadly speaking, there are MOOCs and then there are MOOCs.
While I appreciate the effort, I have to say from my experience with media that there's probably no repairing the dostortions and exaggerations (and outright fabrications) that we're going to see about MOOCs in the commercial press.
