How to Build an Ethical Online Course
Jesse Stommel, Oct 01, 2013
Commentary by Stephen Downes

"The best online and hybrid courses are made from scraps strewn about and gathered together from across the web," writes Jesse Stommel. "We build a course by examining the bits, considering how they’re connected, and creating pathways for learners to make their own connections." Good article in which Stommel outlines many of the principles that guide the development of MOOCs the way they should be created. "The openness of the internet is its most radical and pedagogically viable feature," he writes. "We can’t make our courses 'academically rigorous' by design, especially at the level of content or assessment. Rather, rigor arises through the development of a critically voracious learning community." Agreed. Photo: Henry Stern.
