The MOOC of One

Stephen Downes, Japan Times, Mar 25, 2014
Commentary by Stephen Downes

This is a first lightly edited vrsion of the transcript of my talk in Valencia a few days ago. It describes the development of the MOOC and  want to leads into a discussion of what will follow, what the next generation technology will be to follow after the MOOC. But more, it challenges readers to rethink some of their perceptions about what it is to teach, what it is that an education is supposed to provide. We have this intuitive idea that we think we understand when we begin to educate someone, we're going to make somebody a doctor, but what does that mean? I'm not sure we even know, and a major part of the reason we developed the MOOC is to challenge our thinking around some of these ideas.
