Knowledge, Learning, Community

The Journal of Interactive Media in Education (JIME) has assembled a collection of the articles it has published over the last ten years on MOOCs and introduces it with this editorial. It's a fascinating overview, reflecting not only the continued growth of MOOCs, but also the sentiments of articles about them, the various topics addressed, and the more recent emphases on accessibility and inclusion, languages, and learning design. Naturally as a long-time MOOC enthusiast I have my quibbles with the presentation, and especially the historical timeline (this is a much better listing, IMHO, rather than picking random sites that posted open course materials (because these go back to 1995 and earlier)) but overall I'd say it's a worthwhile read.
