A Series of Questions

Commentary by Stephen Downes

Creating courses online isn't hard, but that's not what's missing in $1.99 online learning. "Is 'getting existentialism' now equivalent to listening to Dreyfus on tape? Well, no - but that's not because creating a course is hard. Rather, it has everything to do with the learner's investment and contribution to the act of learning." And what's important about open learning isn't that it is a way to get low cost learning materials, it's that it allows the creation of learning to be placed back into the hands of those who must create it - the students. (p.s. the title is the answer to the question, "What is a course?")
