Thrun Watch, Day 3: Tressie McMillan Cottom: "Thrun says it wasn’t a failure. It was a lesson. But for the students who invested time and tuition in an experiment foisted on them by the  of stewards public highered trusts, failure is a lesson they didn’t need." The Drucker Institute: "just about all of us want to see universities as we know them transformed into universities as we don’t know them." Rebecca Schuman: "Thrun blames neither the corporatization of the university nor the MOOC’s use of unqualified “student mentors” in assessment. Instead, he blames the students themselves for being so poor." Alan Levine: Pivot MOOC. Udacity blog: App development with Salesforce. Owen Youngman (The Atlantic), "Thousands of people sign up for online classes they never end up taking."
