Contemplating Daphne Koller's departure from Coursa: "It’s not useful (or smart) for anyone to look at the 'end' of MOOCs and to happily pronounce “well, I’m glad that’s over with and I’ll never have to worry about that again," writes Steve Krause. "There are many players still involved in the MOOC biz, and the ones outside of the U.S. have different reasons and means of support than the ones inside the U.S." Krause mentions George Siemens, Dave Cormier and I. I'm pretty sure none of us have the "libertarian ideals and neoliberal governmental policies" critics of MOOCs have raised in the past. Now that the hype is over, maybe we can get on with the real agenda again, and leave the one percent to go find their next new passion.
