Commentary by Stephen Downes

Some commentary on MOOCs, leaning to the marketing perspective (and touting 'Small Private Online Courses, aka the status quo), but with this bit at the end, from the Economist: "Rupert Murdoch is allowing Amplify, his digital education business, to run up losses of around $180m this year in hope of dominating an edtech market that News Corporation reckons will soon be worth $44 billion in America alone." Gee, that`s something to tack on to my LPSS reports to ask for more funding.
