Juergen Rudolph Interview

Stephen Downes, Japan Times, Feb 12, 2014
Commentary by Stephen Downes

This is a lightly edited transcript of an interview I had with Juergen Rudolph a few weeks ago. A few important points: first, "(A MOOC) is not a group of people trying to reach some destination together. It’s a place where individuals pursuing their own interest and objectives can interact in a way that mutually supports each other." Also: "the concept of MOOCs is open online learning in a networks kind of infrastructure. This is not simply a teaching mechanism. This is a social perceptual mechanism. A MOOC is a perceptual device for recognising whether a person is capable and competent in that subject area."
