“Education is broken, somebody should do something”

David Kernohan, Pew Research Internet Project, Sept 11, 2013
Commentary by Stephen Downes

Good post by David Kernohan analyzing the misrepresentation of MOOCs by media. He writes, "“Open” was the first organ that we lost. From a nuanced and specific position in the world of the open educational resource, it is a word reduced to a synonym for two senses of free – free of cost (free as in beer) and free of prerequisites (free as in ride). Freedom, of course, is another word for nothing left to lose – yet somehow we have managed to lose it anyway."
