MOOCagogy: Assessment, Networked Learning, and the Meta-MOOC

Commentary by Stephen Downes

Interesting perspective on MOOCs, drawing on the idea (with which I agree) that real learning can't (and shouldn't be) constrained: "We haven’t learned anything new about online learning from MOOCs (especially Courserian and Udacian MOOCs) because we keep the lion in the cage. The kind of learning we need to have happen in MOOCs can’t be contained -- not in neat and tidy discussion fora, video lectures, and standardized assessments. We must start by observing learning in its natural habitat with a hunter’s blind, good binoculars, and plenty of rations. MOOCs are anthropological opportunities, not instructional ones." The autrhors also note, "This article marks the relaunch of, where we’ve now archived all the articles written for the three iterations of MOOC MOOC."
