I hadn't seen this, but it was sent to me by a colleague and I thought I'd pass it along. The article discusses "h ow advances in artificial intelligence (AI) may enhance learning and research on MOOCs." It's pretty standard stuff: "knowledge representation tools can enable students to adjust the sequence of learning to fit their own needs... optimization techniques can efficiently match community teaching assistants to MOOC mediation tasks... (and)  virtual learning companions with human traits such as curiosity and emotions can enhance learning experience on a large scale." Nothing about giving students agency.
