"Online learning will be the most important innovation in education in the last 200 years," says Antonio Regalado, if MOOCs succeed and create something truly different. Me, I'm wondering what he thinks happened 200 years ago that was equally important. But I digress. "Even though only a small fraction of those will actually complete a class, the rise of the MOOCs means we can begin thinking about how free, top-quality education could change the world." Actually, we have been thinking about it for some number of years. But it's nice to have the rest of the world join us.
