Thinking about MOOCs

John Faig, Dec 23, 2013
Commentary by Stephen Downes

I like this way to create a blog post. John Faig reads a New York Times article about MOOCs, but instead of reacting to the articles, reads through and reacts to the comments that follow the article. The result is a wide ranging set of thoughts about the subject matter. There's a lot more nuance in the comments. "I'm not sure why the media wants to view everything in terms of winners and losers.," he writes. "It is a narrow analytical paradigm and the better way to view innovations is how does it fit? and how will it evolve?   MOOCs are still in their infancy.  The new medium will improve as instructors and students use it. "
