You know what would help MOOC articles? Getting the facts and goals right before analyzing

Phil Hill, Time, Aug 21, 2013
Commentary by Stephen Downes

Just a post to echo what Phil Hill says: "If we want to get beyond the silly point / counterpoint arguments about MOOCs and online education, we owe it to ourselves to characterize the position of others accurately and to get the facts right. Creating straw man arguments based on false assertions, whether intentional or not, does a disservice to everyone involved." He writes this in response to Keith Devlin's article at Huffington Post titled “MOOC Mania Meets the Sober Reality of Education” (I rarely link to Huffington Post because the page loads so much extra garbage along with the article it's impossible to read).
