Commentary by Stephen Downes

Jonathon Rees declares MOOCs dead (but still in need of dismemberment). It's not clear how he reaches this conclusion based on Siemens's observation that criticizing MOOCs is now in vogue. But whatever. If he thinks free and open education no longer poses a threat to systems designed to serve an elite (and overcharge the masses) then fine. But the only thing past its best-before date is co-option and commercial exploitation of MOOCs. Free and open education will, meanwhile, prove surprisingly resilient.
