There has been much criticiasm of the Chronicle's recent elevation of Khan Academy to 'MOOC status'. My own thinking is that either (a) they needed four companies to make a nice need diagram, and cMOOC is not a company, or (b) someone paid them. But I really don't know. In this post, Anuli Akanegbu asks when Khan passes the "duck test" - as in, "if it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck..." So, does it? "By all appearances, the Khan Academy passes the MOOC "Duck Test." But even though it may look like a MOOC and sound like a MOOC, founder Salman Khan maintains that the Khan Academy is not a MOOC." There is video.
