MOOCs: taxonomy of 8 types of MOOC

Commentary by Stephen Downes

I don't see the need for the rude poem, which requires that I post a language warning here. But beyond that, the list of eight types of MOOC is, well, a taxonomy. Because it wouldn't be Education Research without a taxonomy. But I like this bit: "Siemen’s famously  said 'cMOOCs focus on knowledge creation and generation whereas xMOOCs focus on knowledge duplication'. More simply, Smith says 'in an xMOOC you watch videos, in a cMOOC you make videos.'"
