This is a continuation of the series on MOOCs and focuses principally on launching a MOOC. I liked this bit (quoted):
- A MOOC is NOT an on-line course with a discussion forum and a couple of other "social features" tagged on to it.
- A MOOC is NOT a linear program (though xMOOCs do give that feeling) with a neat start and en end.
There are reasons for these criteria. MOOCs approach learning differently because they define learning differently, and they reflect the understanding that knowledge is not something that is copied and transmitted, but rather, something that is created anew by each person through their learning activities.
