Commentary by Stephen Downes

Big Think, an educationally-focussed group blog, has launched something called The Floating University, which appears to be an other entrant into the massive online university market. The first course, "Great Big Ideas: An Entire Undergraduate Education While Standing on One Foot," features lecturers Leon Botstein, Steven Pinker, Tamar Gendler, and Joel Cohen. Just one difference between this model and our model: their course costs $495. I don't think they're working on the same 'free learning' agenda I am, somehow.
